Carmen World Premiere at Whistler Film Festival

Carmen World Premiere at Whistler Film Festival

Nov 09, 2021

The World Premiere of Carmen, directed by Valerie Buhagiar and starring Natascha McElhone, takes place at the 2021 Whistler Film Festival, in person Dec 1-5 and online Dec 1-31. CARMEN is in official competition for the Borsos Best Canadian Feature, and is part of the FIRSTWAVE and CANADIAN VANGUARD programs.

CARMEN is perhaps veteran director and accomplished actor Valerie Buhagiar’s most joyous film outing yet. Set in a sun-dappled village in Malta in the 1980s, Natascha McElhone gives a career-best performance as a 50-year-old woman finding a new start in life through romance.

Carmen screens in person on December 4 and December 5, and online December 22.
