Elements Mineral Makeup is proud to be part of the 10th Anniversary Whistler Film Festival. We donated 50 gift bags and were featured at the Film Lounge providing touch ups of makeup for the stars. They loved us so much at the Toronto Film Festival they asked us to come to Whistler!

Released Tuesday December 7th from First Weekend Club’s Canadian Film Lounge:

It’s a wrap!

In partnership with Whistler Film Festival, First Weekend Club’s CANADIAN FILM LOUNGE gave guests the full maple leaf experience at the festival’s TEN Year Anniversary. Hosted at the Crystal Lodge on Saturday, Dec 4, 1-6pm, guests got to enjoy a unique oasis with spectacular views of the white mountains, wine & drinks, specialty tea sampling by Domo Tea (from Dragon Den fame), light snacks, and of course, take home some terrific gifts from Canadian companies. A full list of participants is available at:

At the Beauty Bar in the suite, Whistler’s The Loft Salon provided two amazing stylists � even the men took advantage! Some even got hair their hair cut. Elements Minerals provided their lead makeup artist, the lovely Alla Christina Hird who did stunning makeup looks for the ladies, and even applied false lashes by Luxe.

The Canadian Film Lounge played host to filmmakers, stars, industry, media, and other VIPs. Guests included: Film critics such as Richard Crouse & Brian Johnson, actors Callum Keith Rennie & David Richmond-Peck, top casting director Margery Simkin, actress Brittany Bristow (“Sophie”), directors Michael Goldbach (Daydream Nation), Dany Papineau (“2 Frogs in the West”) & Michael Greenspan (“Wrecked”), producers Christine Haebler, Shawn Williamson, and Elizabeth Yake, actress Agam Dashi, actor Tygh Runyan with wife Sarah Lind, filmmaker Karysa Kodracki whose film “The Whistleblower” was the talk of the festival and took home the Borso Award, Glee’s Patrick Gallagher, Zach Lipovsky (talented young filmmaker & finalist on “The Lot”), Lynne Stopkewich, Julia Kwan, Reece Thompson (who is one of the stars in “Daydream Nation”), noted documentary filmmaker Ron Mann… and last but certainly not least, the very patient… George Stroumboulopoulos.

The real stars, of course, were the Canadian films which were showcased in the suite.

…Until next year!
