About Us

Since 2000, The GATE has been obsessed with covering all things entertainment, culture, and style; from film, music and television, to travel, gaming and electronics.

Created by Owner and Editor-In-Chief, W. Andrew Powell, our stories and reviews have been read around the world, but most importantly, we’re a proud supporter of Canadian talent in all its forms.

Over the years we have also been home to any number of guests writers, artists, and talents, including author and TV personality Christopher Heard, film critic Andrew Parker, theatre critic Susan Down, photographer Paul Buceta, writer and social media personality Christine Estima, Toronto Sun writer Jenny Yuen, former Toronto Star writer Tim Alamenciak, and numerous others.

The GATE is updated daily, and features annual coverage of events like the Toronto International Film Festival, the Juno Awards, the Oscars, the MuchMusic Video Awards, Fan Expo, and in the past we covered Canadian Music Fest, and North by Northeast, just to name a few highlights.

Our ongoing coverage of lifestyle, food, spirits, style, and specialty events in Toronto keep us busy, and we’re proud to work with top international brands throughout the year, and especially for our annual Holiday Gift Guide in late November.
