At the Whistler Film Festival you won’t find the usual Hollywood movies. So Dare Vancouver created an ad campaign that tells unexpected stories.

Trailers created for the festival start like predictable Hollywood movies, but take a hard left turn.

This animated spot, created with Tokyoplastic in London, starts like a lovely princess story by Disney, but quickly turns into a scene you’d expect from a movie like Scarface.
