The Ginger Gang – TIFF ’13
ever since i was a child, i have loved the movies. i aspired to work in them when i grew up…and in another lifetime (also known as my 20s), i did just that. before working in the movies, i volunteered at The Toronto International Film Festival, known simply as TIFF. over the years i have fallen out of the film community circle, but every year when the glamorous side of film takes over our city, i like to enjoy the energy that TIFF brings.
over the weekend i took Tichka and Little Dude with me downtown Toronto, where we wandered around the TIFF zone. while they may not have a multimillion dollar three-picture studio deal, they are the biggest stars in my eyes.
yes, this is the actual red carpet at Roy Thompson Hall that Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins, the cast and filmmakers behind ‘Life of Crime’ walked the night before.
right outside one of the main TIFF venues…the beautiful Roy Thompson Hall.
i think they were a little sad that they missed all of the red carpet excitement.
the glitzy marquee of the historical Royal Alex Theatre, right across the street from Roy Thompson Hall.
in front of the TIFF box office.
on the west side of the TIFF Lightbox building.
they are not fans of being in the queue. not that i can blame them…neither am i.
but we scored first in line for the rush line for the next film…woot!
thanks again TIFF…see you again next year!
