The Toronto International Film Festival is almost here - a busy time for successful directors, actors, producers, publicists, and members of the press. Normally, if you want to be invited to a TIFF party, get interviewed on the red carpet, and rub elbows with film professionals, then you have to have a movie in the Festival. But like any other truly great party, last year TIFF seems to have ended up with some uninvited guests.
At the 2010 Festival, a group called "Infiltr8 Media" managed to bluff their way into an industry party - and actually meet famed producer Harvey Weinstein to tell him about their idea for a feature film - by inventing a movie and pretending to be its stars. You can see how they did it right here:
Obviously, you shouldn't try this. Just like any other host, TIFF doesn't exactly welcome party crashers, and you'll be in a world of trouble if you get caught.
Besides, there are easier ways to get into a TIFF event. For instance, $150 will get you tickets to this Friday's Artists for Peace and Justice "Painting the Night Red" party that George is co-hosting with Paul Haggis and Gerard Butler.
