#TIFF13: MR. WILL THANKS HIS OFFICIAL PARTNERS!
Together over the years we’ve built a Brand which has become synonymous with Celebrity Culture, Entertainment and Toronto. We’re thrilled about all the possibilities which this year’s Toronto International Film Festival holds and with the enthusiasm of a Child, we count down the hours till it all kicks off.
Having already previewed a fair number of this year’s Marquee Films receiving their Premieres here including hotly-tipped Opening Night Gala The Fifth Estate, I can say this is definitely one of the strongest Festivals in recent years not only in terms of quality of Films, but also the Star Power. And you know how much we love those Stars!
Please join us here at Mr. Will Wong over the next two weeks as we preview and review some of the most buzzworthy Films to make a splash at TIFF ’13. In addition, you know you can count on us to spot both A-List and Up-and-Coming Talent in town in their most candid moments with Fans.
In addition to being present and visible here, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, I will be allover your Television Screens as I partner once again with CP24 as their TIFF Correspondent before upwards of three-million people in Ontario who watch the Channel on a weekly basis. Be sure to follow my every step online as you won’t want to miss a beat! My first appearance is scheduled for Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 12:15 PM EST, followed by various appearances throughout the Festival to be looped throughout the day. I will be capping it all off with an appearance on CP24 Breakfast Live on Saturday, September 14, 2013.
I would not be able to survive the grueling 18-20 hour days that come with TIFF without the generosity of our official Partners. With gratitude I thank our Friends who kindly have shown their support:
MONGREL MEDIA who for the first time are giving Mr. Will Wong Readers a chance not only to win Red Carpet Premiere Passes, but also access to their mega-exclusive TIFF Party. I look forward to partying with my lucky Readers! And just so you know, it’s still not too late to enter here. Mongrel Media‘s Line-up is fantastic this year, including Only Lovers Left Alive (Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston), The Past (Bérénice Bejo), Tracks (Mia Wasikowska, Adam Driver) and The Face of Love (Annette Bening, Ed Harris).
OLYMPUS who generously have provided me their state-of-the-art E-PL5 to photograph with this Festival. That tiltable Monitor excites me and I can’t wait to capture some unforgettable Selfies and candid moments with the Stars. Its Small Target AutoFocus and Fine Detail Processing will ensure that I get that Snap with great precision. Did I mention it also photographs in phenomenal 16 MP quality? More on the E-PL 5 here.
HOTEL NOVOTEL TORONTO CENTRE who amazingly are sponsoring my stay for the most hectic part of the Festival. I know extremely well the importance of a good night’s rest if even just a Power Nap to recharge just in time to capture more of the Celebrity madness. Located right at the heart of Downtown Toronto and only a short distance from some of the most glamorous Red Carpet Premieres in the City, I will make a point of making time for their Indoor Pool, Gym, Restaurant and free WiFi! Cannot wait to see the beautiful scenic view from my window, the Hotel overseeing the bright lights and heights of our fabulous City. If you’re looking for an affordable option with charm and convenience, there is no better value than Hotel Novotel. More here.
HONDA CANADA who as always are wonderfully supportive. This TIFF, I will be driving the gorgeous and amazing 2013 Honda Accord Sedan which not only boasts superb Fuel Efficiency but also exciting Performance, much needed as I’ll be zooming from venue to venue effortlessly. Its compact style is perfect from City Living (…and parking!). Learn more about the Accord here.
SAMSUNG CANADA who graciously are empowering me with a Samsung Galaxy S4 this TIFF! Its full HD 1080p Display gives me something to look forward to with great excitement as does its dual front (2 MP) and rear (13 MP) Cameras which give me no reason to not snap that perfect Selfie with a Celeb! Its spacious 5″ Display will equip me with the ability to properly type, text and navigate as I communicate with my Readers and Followers throughout the Festival! More importantly, its extended Battery Life of up to 17 hours Talk Time and 8 hours Internet Usage on the LTE Network will help me get through each long day where others before have failed me. More on the Samsung Galaxy S4 here.
H&M CANADA who have been amazing these past few TIFFs in fashioning me with some of their latest looks. The Mr. Will Look generally is low-fuss and more about comfort and practicality, especially with the unpredictable weather we get in September. I know I’ll be Camera-ready for TV and my moments with the Stars with my Pieces (especially excited about my Cardigans!) from the H&M Fall 2013 Men’s Collection. Nobody understands the synergy between Celebrity and affordable Fashion like H&M with several exciting Collaborations in recent memory with the likes of Beyoncé, David Beckham, Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Lana Del Rey, Joel Kinnaman and more!
NELLA BELLA who are so thoughtful to provide me with one of their signature Bags to use this Festival. How else would I survive the day without sophisticated, sturdy and stylish storage for all my gear? This Canadian Handbang Maker offers sleek looks and durability. Above all else, they are made with Vegan Materials! I look forward to my treasured Accessory this TIFF, the Stockholm Bag (see above). Check-out their entire Collection here.
OUT THERE WITH MELISSA DIMARCO who so kindly is giving my Readers a chance to visit her TIFF Interview Studio and Hospitality Suite at InterContinental Centre Hotel this year. We all know her on Television for her stunning beauty and big heart! I myself look forward to visiting her Oasis amidst all the bustle and am excited for my Readers to get to mingle with Industry and Media Types, not to mention some awesome Food and Drink. Learn more about the Contest here.
GROLSCH OPEN HOUSE PUBLIC FESTIVAL LOUNGE who are giving Festival Goers an opportunity for refreshment from Friday, September 6 – Monday, September 9, 2013 with amazing Eats, Art Installations, intimate Musical sets from DJs and emerging local Acts… and of course, Grolsch Premium Lager – the official Beer of TIFF. Do not forget to check it all out at the corner of Pearl x John! We’ll definitely see you there. More here.
