Okay, okay, we are here for the films, yes? But we are also here to support and gush over the stars that land in our fair city during the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) September 5 to 15, 2019.

The annual September event that takes over the city just days after Labour Day transforms the downtown zone into one big celebrity spotting sport. Get your cameras ready and keep your eyes peeled on the sidewalks, hotels, theatres, restaurants, and nightclubs at all times of the day and night. Oh yes, and don’t forget the red carpets!
