There are certain things that I know I can rely on during The Toronto International Film Festival. Festival Street is always a blast on the first five days of the festival. Faces and places of the season change, but get me just as excited as ever – click here for my list for 2019. And of course, the films and the parties. This year, as every year I’ve worked to cover TIFF for you all, Audi Canada is very proud to help sponsor and host exclusive private gala events honouring the studios, producers, directors, casts and their special guests.
For years we’ve brought you the BTS moments with Audi Canada, so this year I wanted to tell you about what is happening before in case you’re out and enjoying the season with me in Toronto – or following along with us online!

And of course… the parties. Audi Canada will serve as a sponsor for the Artists for Peace and Justice 2019 Festival Gala. APJ’s mission is to encourage peace and social justice, while working to alleviate poverty around the world. By developing partnerships with local leaders in vulnerable communities that need us most, Artists for Peace and Justice works to create real opportunities with valuable education, meaningful employment, inspiring voices and ethical leadership.
Year after year, the films and events of Audi Canada and Warner Brother Pictures Canada impress and amaze me. I may or may not be bringing you BTS to some of the hottest parties of the year… I just can’t tell you which ones yet but definitely follow along with me!
