WHISTLER, BC, Dec. 9, 2014 /CNW/ - The stage tears down, the village clears out and the Whistler Film Festival makes a wrap for the fourteenth time. Celebs, industry and influencers alike leave the festival on a high note with a job well done, excitement in the air and SORELs on their feet.
As each year passes the festival grows, partnerships increase and activities become more engaging for the stars and fans. Whether a celeb is spotted at an after party, industry folk are seen catching up for a laugh or bloggers are cataloging their expedition at a local attraction, SOREL made them ready for anything.
SOREL teamed up with ELLE Canada for a second year to host a gifting lounge and photo studio. For 2014 there was the addition of a makeup studio sponsored by L'Oreal Paris, which helped make the SOREL Suite a coveted destination. "There is a great synergy of brands with SOREL and ELLE Canada, and with this year's addition of L'Oreal Paris," said Leah Primeau, Whistler Film Festival Society Development and Sponsorship Manager. "The SOREL Suite continues to be a desired stop for filmmakers and celebrity guests of the Festival."
While Festival VIPs were stopping by the desired Suite, SOREL was staying social for all those who could not get on a winter getaway. With Local Wanderer exploring what the Village and Whistler had to offer, all fans could feel like they were in the mountains. "We had such a great time exploring Whistler in our SORELs! From wandering on to frozen lakes and meeting locals for a hockey game, to riding the Peak 2 Peak Gondola and trekking to a bungee jumping bridge, we had tons of adventures during the film fest," said Local Wanderer, a Vancouver based blogger duo.
