The GATE and Elevation Pictures are thrilled to give away double passes to see Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, Lady Bird, which opens in select cities on November 10, and expands across Canada on November 17.
Former United States president Barack Obama is in Toronto today to speak at an event for Canada 2020, and to welcome him back to the country, Canada Goose took out billboard space to get a message to the iconic gentleman.
JFL42 is about to hit Toronto and the lineup is better than ever. With so many comedians about to hit the city we thought it would be fun to highlight a few notable headliners and check out what they had to say about life and their acts.
Bruce Campbell is one of my favorite horror icons. He’s fun, acerbic, and honest in the most down-to-earth way possible. This week he arrives in Toronto for Fan Expo, and I had the chance to speak with him about his new book, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor, the Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead, and what it’s like meeting with fans. Campbell even had some advice for fans coming out to meet him this weekend.

It’s nearly time for TIFF 2017! The 42nd Toronto International Film Festival is just a few days away, and today the festival announced hundreds of stars, talent, and filmmakers who will be visiting the city between September 7 to 17 for the red carpets, parties, industry sessions, interviews, and screenings.
There are few things more satisfying than taking a walk around the city on a warm summer night with a carefully curated playlist pumping through a set of headphones. Mastercard and Apple Music know just that feeling and have taken it to the next level with celebrity constructed soundtracks made specifically for Toronto and Montreal.

“Girls” still equals pink. That was my first impression of the well-organized and equally inspired Girl Talk Empowerment Day at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre last Tuesday. Their 5th annual, the event ran from from morning to mid-day with more than 1000 girls ages 11-18 in attendance.
The Toronto International Film Festival is just over three months away, and select TIFF members can start planning their adventures for September starting today with advanced purchases of TIFF ticket packages. Visa cardholders can purchase ticket packages starting on June 14, and open to the public as of June 21.
It’s not every day that you get invited to a Canadian icon’s home. Last Saturday, before he went to the ACTRA Awards, I dropped by Yannick Bisson’s house to talk about his career, Murdoch Mysteries, and a special new project that he’s working on with his wife. It was really a relaxed chat with one of Canada’s most recognized stars.
