Have you snuggled a puppy recently? The first five days of TIFF were hectic, fun, and challenging--which is exactly what you expect from TIFF--but on the bright side we also got to snuggle puppies thanks to the fine folks at Save Our Scruff, who brought their adorable dogs to #GATELounge17.
One moment it’s January and you start planning to do something big for TIFF, and the next it’s September and you’re a few days away from the festival. The last eight months have been a blur, but it’s been nothing less than a thrill ride all along the way, with challenges, and rewards, at every turn.
The GATE and Hamilton Watch want to make one lucky winner feel like a star, and to celebrate the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival we're giving away a Ventura watch with an interview lounge experience.
Thank-you, 2016. Yes, it was a tough year, both personally and as a fan of popular culture and its icons, but it was also one of The GATE's best years. It's worth taking a moment now at the end of 2016 to look back on some of the awesome that came our way over the last 365 days.
Spread the cheer this holiday season with special luxury gifts from some of The GATE's favorite brands, including two special timepieces from Hamilton Watch, the latest Samsung Curved 4K SUHD TV, Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine, and cognac from Courvoisier.
What does it take for a movie production designer like Nathan Crowley--responsible for The Prestige, The Dark Knight, and Interstellar--to design a timepiece for Hamilton Watches? For the Odyssey ODC X-03, which was recently unveiled in Los Angeles at a special event, it just takes the right timing, if you'll excuse the pun, the right design, a lot of work, and a great working relationship built on a very special project.
Often my discoveries of cool new hotels come as a part of a larger or much different purpose for my actually being there. Sometimes a cool interview with an actor or director brings me to their favourite hotels which then gives me the opportunity to explore and develop an appreciation for that hotel independently and sometimes it is a special occasion that is either specific to the hotel or specifically related to the hotel.
