WHISTLER FILM FESTIVAL 2017 INTERVIEW: THE OTHER SIDE OF PORCUPINE LAKE DIRECTOR JULIAN PAPAS
by Jason Whyte
""THE OTHER SIDE OF PORCUPINE LAKE is a behind-the-scenes documentary that follows independent Canadian director, Ingrid Veninger, as she makes her sixth feature film entitled PORCUPINE LAKE. This film eschews a traditional making-of documentary approach by using an observational style without interviews to reveal the intimate process of making an original female-driven feature film from writing and casting, and through to production and post. It shows a different way of making movies at a low-budget level within Canada while focusing on aspects of filmmaking that a regular viewer does not usually see in documentaries like the editor assembling material, the craft person making a meal and the crew bonding and hanging out." Director Julian Papas on THE OTHER SIDE OF PORCUPINE LAKE which screened at the 2017 edition of the Whistler Film Festival." (more)

WHISTLER FILM FESTIVAL 2017 INTERVIEW: BUDAPEST NOIR DIRECTOR EVA GARDOS
by Jason Whyte
""Budapest, 1936. The Hungarian prime minister returns from Germany in a coffin, his dream of making Hungary into a fascist state snuffed out. For now. Crime reporter Zsigmond Gordon has other things on his mind. A cynic who thinks he has seen it all, a tip leads him to an unusual crime scene in a seedy part of the city; a beautiful, well-dressed young woman is dead, with only a Jewish prayer book in her purse. His curiosity is aroused. Didn't he just spot her in a sexy photo in the office of the Chief of Police? But an official stonewall blocks investigation of the mystery girl's murder, provoking Gordon to solve the puzzle of her demise. Enlisting the help of Krisztina, the beautiful photographer who once broke his heart and whom he doesn't fully trust, Gordon pursues his own investigation, following a murder suspect into the city's dark underbelly. Gordon enters a world of pornographers, brothels and Communist cells leading to the highest echelons of power. The more people try to scare him away, the deeper he digs in, not knowing who to trust, or what ulterior motives are working against him and the truth. Driven by one thing, finding the girl's killer, the increasingly endangered journalist is the only one who seems to care in a world gone mad, with Hitler looming on Hungary's horizon." Director Eva Gardos on BUDAPEST NOIR which screens at the 2017 edition of the Whistler Film Festival." (more)
