After revealing that her "least favorite" pairing was with 90210 alum Ian Ziering, Burke, 31, admitted that she's had to Google her partners in the past.

The 'iZombie' finale staged a massacre that was like 'Walking Dead' — but fun

12 April 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

iZombie wrapped up its second season tonight with back-to-back episodes. I already offered some overall thoughts on the season after last week's outing, so let's get specific on the finale, coming up just as soon as I'm a squad leader of my Call of Duty World League challenge team... We know from the Meat Cute massacre in the season 1 finale that this show can do impressive zombie action when it's of a mind to. But the carnage at the Max Rager party was much bigger and more elaborate than I'd have expected. If it wasn't as technically impressive as the Walking Dead version would have been, it was so much fun, and so character-focused — whether Clive declining to be scratched, Liv being forced to kill the Romero'ed Drake (who only wound up that way because he was the good guy Liv always believed him to be), or Major finally getting »

Whistler Film Festival Opens Call for Submissions

9 March 2016 3:19 PM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

The Whistler Film Festival (Wff) is seeking submissions for its 16th annual festival, which runs from November 30th to December 4th, 2016 and will feature up to 90 films comprised of approximately 45 features and 45 shorts. Canadian and International filmmakers are invited to submit films of all lengths and genres by the following deadlines: April 30th for early film submissions (discount on application); June 30th for regular film deadline; and July 31st for late film deadline with the extended late film deadline on August 15th.

Cinematic excellence is at the heart of the Whistler Film Festival. To recognize the vitality of this art form, the 2016 festival will feature six juried competitive sections, one audience award, and will give out over $32,500 in cash prizes and commissions. Award categories include the Borsos Competition for Best Canadian Feature, World Documentary Film Award, Mountain Culture Award, the International and Canadian ShortWork Awards, and the BC Student ShortWork Award. All feature length films are eligible for the Audience Award selected by the festival-going public who cast their votes for the most popular film.

"Building on the success of our first fifteen years, the Whistler Film Festival remains the last significant North American festival within each calendar year, and continues to build on its reputation as “Canada’s coolest festival”,” says Paul Gratton, Wff’s Director of Programming. “For Canadian dramatic films, all Western premieres will automatically compete for the prestigious Borsos awards, and participants at the festival will have unprecedented access to distributors, broadcasters and commissioning editors from across the country. For non-Canadian entries, Whistler affords unique publicity and distribution opportunities, and serves as an entry point to the North American market. This festival has a focus on indie production that continues to grow in prestige and influence from year to year. As a filmmaker, Whistler is one festival that you can’t afford to miss.”

Celebrating its 13th edition in 2016, the Borsos Competition for Best Canadian Feature honors independent vision, original directorial style and the diversity of talent found in Canadian independent film. All feature films of new, narrative work by Canadian filmmakers presenting their Western Canadian premieres at the festival will be eligible. In 2015, 20 entries were presented. For twelve consecutive years, Borsos Competition entries have exuded the creative fire and artistry embodied by filmmaker Phillip Borsos, known for his inspiring work on the award-winning films "The Grey Fox" (1982), and "Bethune: The Making of a Hero" (1990). An international jury of three seasoned industry veterans adjudicate the following awards: Best Canadian Feature Film (the largest cash and commission festival prize for a Canadian film after Tiff, which includes a $15,000 cash prize and $15,000 post production prize); Best Director of a Borsos Film; Best Screenplay for a Borsos Film; Best Performance in a Borsos Film; and Best Cinematography in a Borsos Film. Esteemed jury presidents have included Carl Bessai, Jason Priestley, Luc Déry, Martin Katz, Bruce Greenwood, Ivan Reitman, Atom Egoyan, Donald Sutherland, Robert Lantos and Norman Jewison.

From the personal to the political, Whistler’s World Documentary Competition will showcase up to eight innovative and unique documentaries from around the world. With courageous viewpoints and a deep-rooted desire to explore, these films capture the human spirit in its many guises and often challenge us to look at our world from a new perspective. An international jury of three will select the winner.

Up to five films will be eligible for Whistler’s Mountain Culture Film Competition. As a reflection of the festival’s unique setting, this award honours films from around the world that capture mountain places and experiences with a cinematic flourish. All films must be Western Canadian Premieres. A jury of three will select the winner.

Whistler’s ShortWork Competition will showcase up to 50 short films (under 50 minutes in length) within five short film programs. Presented with verve and limited only by their duration, these short films display the extraordinary talent, dynamism and creative exploration found in the work of some of the world’s most interesting filmmakers. A jury of three will select the International winner and a Canadian winner, which is eligible for a $1,000 cash prize and a $1,000 cash prize to the Best Canadian ShortWork Screenplay.

The BC Student ShortWork Award will be presented to a short film produced by post-secondary students in British Columbia selected from a film program of up to ten films. A three-person jury will award a $500 Cdn prize.

Film submission guidelines are now available at www.whistlerfilmfestival.com . »
