Ontario’s Blue Mountain Resort is now kicking off a new film festival, and a fleet of cars will follow the films.
The festival will feature 17 films from Canada and Europe. Five Canadian films will get a special screening and a special event after their film premieres. A new international short film series, “New York Vue,” will feature new short films from all over the world. “OysterTribe – Insights from Canada’s First Nations Community” will premiere, and will be followed by a dance party, film screening and spoken word session featuring First Nations.
“Sufjan Stevens” will also play a live video game, inviting fans to participate in virtual reality (VR) experiences of the movie, which premiered in 2015 and was followed by a concert tour.
“We are doing this because it’s one of the greatest things we can bring to the Ontario family,” said Stuart Bird, president and chief executive officer of Blue Mountain Resort. “You bring in film from Canada, film from around the world, and you’re bringing together all these wonderful people. It’s fun, and it’s bonding.”
