#TIFF16: UNIFRANCE COCKTAIL PARTY WITH ISABELLE HUPPERT, OLIVIER ASSAYAS, PAUL VERHOEVEN AND MORE!
One of our favourite TIFF bashes annually is the UniFrance Party, held at The Fifth Social Club. While the Red Carpets during the Festival are very Hollywood-centric, this one event stretches the scope of the Festival to include French-language Film. Several high-profile names graced the Carpet at the Party this year including iconic actress Isabelle Huppert and auteur Filmmakers like Paul Verhoeven, François Ozon and Olivier Assayas. Legendary French actress Agnès Varda who was a dear ...
