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.

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.
The GATE would like to congratulate Alicia P., the winner of the Hamilton Watch Ventura giveaway. Alicia visited The GATE’s 2017 Toronto International Film Festival Interview Lounge, presented by Hamilton Watch, and acted as our official interview Timekeeper during two interviews.
One day you’re trying to fit in as many press screenings as you can, and the next it’s time for TIFF to start. That always seems to be the way with the festival, but this year seemed to disappear especially quickly as I planned for The GATE’s Interview Lounge at TIFF 2017, presented by Hamilton Watch. Now here I am: the lounge is open, and we’ve been hosting interviews and guests for 2 days now.
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.
