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.

Happy Day 3, TIFFers! It’s one of my favorite times of year in Toronto, and the film festival is in full swing. For press and publicists, mind you, it’s more like week three, because of all of the pre-festival screenings, but it’s hard to complain about that when it makes the front-end of TIFF so much more productive. I rarely get time to screen much in the first few days of TIFF, but that’s usually because I’m interviewing, and there have been some good ones already.
The Toronto International Film Festival is back, the films are rolling, and the stars are glamming it up around town and on the red carpet.

Whether you’re celebrating TIFF, or just hosting a party, these cocktails will help add a little star power.

The streets are steamier than ever for the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. In the 16 years that I’ve covered the “Festival of Festivals” I don’t recall it ever being quite this hot before, but there’s a first for everything at TIFF. And TIFF is always changing.

Welcome to September, and wow, is it busy. I’ve certainly noticed that I’m busier than usual, but you really know you’re especially busy when publicists start responding to your schedule by telling you, ‘Wow, you’re busy’. There’s busy, and then there’s a level of busy that even a publicist can appreciate.
