The vivid story of journalist Christine Campos comes into sharp focus in the drama Christine, starring Rebecca Hall in a role that is certain to help define her career. The film is an arresting look at the real-life journalist’s descent into darkness–one that she will never return from again.
At the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, I sat down with stars Sasha Lane and Riley Keough to talk about American Honey, the new film from director Andrea Arnold which opened in select theatres this weekend.
Each year, during the Toronto International Film Festival, I am fortunate to meet a lot of actors, directors, producers, writers, and other talent from film, and television. This year at TIFF 2016, I had the fortune of working with Toronto photographer Rick McGinnis to capture some of that talent in a series of special portrait sessions.

Between the two Toronto International Film Festival press conferences each year, announcing all the excitement and the celebrities and the hoopla that comes with the action packed ten September days of the fest–this year from the 8th through the 18th–I always find the press conference devoted exclusively to the Canadian films and documentaries to be the most vibrant. That’s because a number of the filmmakers and actors and writers and producers are right there mingling with the crowd of press and publicists in the ballroom at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.
