TIFF film picks and festival memories from the Producers Ball
Inside the Producers Ball, an annual celebration of the Canadian film, TV and digital industries
They're the people who get it all done. And every year, around the beginning of TIFF, the producers behind the Canadian film, TV and digital industries get to party. The annual Producers Ball, which was held at Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum Friday night, is all about toasting their success with cocktails, and canapes and an amply stocked candy and chocolate station.
Hundreds of showbiz types turn up for the occasion, partying amid the dinosaur bones: actors (Tatiana Maslany, Pamela Anderson), musicians (Kardinal Offishall), filmmakers. They're an expert mix to ask about festival film picks, and their favourite TIFF experiences...
