iPhone Phun – TIFF

Yes it’s Saturday so I couldn’t very well call this iPhone Friday so consider this a special edition. This past Thursday was opening night of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). TIFF was founded in 1976 but has grown to be the most influential film festival.

Every September Toronto is host to world renowned celebrities and movie makers. This year the city has closed down King Street, home of the TIFF Bell Lightbox building and where many of the venues are located, and has turned into a pedestrian walkway. I work about a five minute walk from the epicentre of activities and yesterday at lunch time, armed with my iPhone, a friend and I ventured out to explore.

I’m heading back out this evening but wanted to share with you a few of my shots.

  1. Love the film festival therapy booth! I’m sure there’s a queue of indie film makers philosophizing about their works!

    • Your so close Cindy you should drive in for the day. This is the first year that they’ve closed down 5 blocks of King St and I think it was a great success. I was back there last night and the crowds were lined up for the opening of the new Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts film. The energy was electric. I actually got a glimpse of Naomi Watts.

      • I know, I really should. I just wish it was a little later because around this time I’m always dealing with moving my oldest son back to school and my youngest son’s birthday. I will be down on the 21st though for The Word on the Street, which is a book festival at Queen’s Park. I’ve always wanted to check it out, and this year I finally am :).
