Monteith, who died of an accidental mix of drugs in Vancouver in July, stars in “All the Wrong Reasons,” a feature film by New Brunswick writer/director/producer Gia Milani, who recently won the Best Emerging Filmmaker award at the Toronto International Film Festival.
“All the Wrong Reasons” is set in a big box store, where four employees, including Monteith as office nerd James, are pursuing their destinies.
Other films to be screened include local filmmaker Ruth Lawrence’s autobiographical short “Talus & Scree;” “How to Lose Your Virginity,” Therese Schechter’s look at how and why female virginity is so valued in a hyper-sexualized society, and “The Way to Nowhere Island,” a documentary about British environmental activist Tamsin Omond.
In addition to screenings, Women in View will present its annual report on the representation of women and visible minorities in Canadian feature films during a luncheon at Rocket Room.
A full schedule and ticket information is available online at www.womensfilmfestival.com. The festival wraps up Saturday.
