Cedric the Entertainer | The GATE's TIFF Lounge

21 portraits from TIFF 2017

by W. Andrew Powell

These pictures are worth more than a thousand words. I’m thriled to once again have photographer Rick McGinnis with us for The GATE’s Interview Lounge at TIFF 2017, Presented by Hamilton Watch, and this year he captured some truly stunning portraits of the filmmakers, actors, and talent who dropped in.

McGinnis joined us last year to capture iconic portraits for TIFF 2016, but this year I had him setup right in our lounge so he could photograph nearly every guest who dropped in. We had dozens of truly awesome interviews, and McGinnis worked hard to capture their personality in memorable and striking ways.

Portraits from this year’s lounge include Cedric The Entertainer, Judy Greer, Saara Chaudry, Charlotte Vega, Karim Sayad, Katie Boland, Kholoud Al-Faqih, Ed Oxenbould, Gijs Naber, Mina Shum, Jessie Buckley, John Ralston, Justine Bateman, Ksenia Solo, and the Salmeron family from the documentary Lots of Kids, a Monkey and a Castle.

We will have more coverage from TIFF after the festival wraps, and that will include interviews, videos, and reviews.
