Last chance to vote in ColdFront online film Festival

Three finalists vie for $10,000 first prize



It's the final week of Whistler Blackcomb's ColdFront online film festival.

The festival has featured short films by Olliepop Films, Heart Films, Ryan Kenny and Benjamin Webb, Geoff Hewat, Nuulife Cinema and Graeme Mieklejohn.

Every week since late September, two competitors have vied for votes from the online public. Just three are left: Hewat, Kenny and Webb, and Heart Films.

The winner of the next round of voting takes home a $10,000 first prize.

Each of the competitors' films has showcased the resort's winter wonderland. All films were shot between February 2014 and the end of last season.

Voters are also entered in a draw for $5,000 in winter gear, including a Whistler Blackcomb season pass for 2014-2015.
