#TIFF23: DAY NINE SIGHTINGS – SYLVESTER STALLONE AND ANDY LAU
…and that’s a wrap for us! What a TIFF it’s been! And while we were a bit worried about being impacted by a smaller number of talent coming through, somehow we still found ourselves putting in the same amount of time and enjoying the Films just as much as we usually do.
A notable theme among some of our favourites this year was a deep exploration of male-female dynamics as we see the world through a post-#MeToo lens. Some of our favourite films namely MEMORY, DADDIO, THE ROYAL HOTEL and FAIR PLAY, explored deeply-intricate and complex human interactions, which we actually have been craving after periods of isolation these past few years.
While we still have a few movies to see, the star sighting has capped-off for us and we hope you’ve had fun on our adventures! It was so amazing getting to meet some of you in-person finally, old supporters and new!
Day nine sightings were actually loaded were mega-starpower. We saw Sylvester Stallone at TIFF Bell Lightbox heading to his In-Conversation, which we are hearing was amazing. Tomorrow he premieres his Netflix Documentary SLY at Roy Thomson Hall.
Some additional Snaps from our David Baldwin who attended the event:
You know we love our Andy Lau and it was amazing seeing the Chinese-Canadian community come out in droves to see this icon, whose career has spanned five decades. Incredible! He walked the Carpet with Director Ning Hao at Roy Thomson Hall.
A huge thanks again to our supporters and partners including:

Until next year! Trust me, we’ve earned some rest!
