The 13th annual Whistler Film Festival kicks off next Wednesday, drawing more than 10,000 movie lovers and movie business types to B.C.'s Coast Mountains for five days of films, awards, panels and conversations.

One of those conversations will be with Jason Priestley, the Vancouver-born actor who first came to international prominence playing Brandon Walsh, the good guy at the heart of Beverly Hills, 90210. At this year's fest, Priestley's feature film directorial debut Cas & Dylan will be presented as the opening gala on December 4, and will be a contender in the Borsos Competition for Best Canadian Feature. Here's the trailer for the film, a road trip movie starring Ophan Black's Tatiana Maslany and Richard Dreyfuss as the title characters:

Later in the week, on December 7, Priestley will be interviewed by George in front of a live audience at the Whistler Conference Centre. At last year's festival, George led a conversation with Daniel Radcliffe. Here are a couple of clips from that interview:

Other highlights of the fest this year include a tribute to Dreyfuss, a documentary about snowboarder Kevin Pearce called The Crash Reel and a spotlight on three leading actresses, Melissa Leo, Ali Liebert and Emily Hampshire.
