The Whistler Film Festival has added to the lineup for its Borsos competition for best Canadian feature.

Set to compete in Whistler are the TIFF transplants All That You Possess, by Bernard Edmond, Kate Melville’s Picture Day, and Sudz Sutherland’s Home Again.

Also booked for the Borsos competition is Martin Laroche’s Fair Sex, which bowed in Karlovy Vary, and two films by Winnipeg director Sean Garrity, Blood Pressure and My Awkward Sexual Adventure.

And David Mortin’s Mad Ship (pictured), previously announced by Whistler programmers, will also compete in Whistler, as will Michael McGowan’s Still, another TIFF title.

“Picking a definitive winner out of this fine collection of extraordinary Canadian films will not be an easy task,” Whistler director of programming Paul Gratton said Monday in a statement.
