The 2012 Whistler Film Festival (WFF) announced yesterday that Kate Melville’s feature film directorial debut, Picture Day, a brutally comic coming-of-age film won the $15,000 Borsos Award for Best Canadian Feature Film. The Borsos jury commented, “This year, we are delighted to recognize a filmmaker whose work is revelatory: universal in its specificity, soulful, heartfelt, raw, intelligent, profoundly human and so much fun. Kate, Philip Borsos is smiling.”

Picture Day garnered a second laurel when Tatiana Maslany won WFF’s new Best Performance in a Borsos Competition Film Award for her role in the film. The Jury commented that Maslany’s performance is “fearless, honest, unapologetic, heartbreaking, and hilarious… and, in our opinion, is a force of nature.”
