#TIFF14: MR. WILL THANKS FESTIVAL PARTNERS AND SUPPORTERS!
I live wholeheartedly for TIFF but before it all begins, I must take a moment to acknowledge and thank you generous Supporters who make it possible for me. We’re doing it bigger and better than ever this year and can’t wait to have you along on one of the most fun Digital Journeys in the City between Wednesday, September 3, 2014 and Sunday, September 14, 2014! We’ll be spotting Stars, interviewing a couple big names and reviewing (with the help of our amazing Contributors Justin Waldman, Jonathan Godfrey and David Baldwin) first all those Films which comprise the Awards Season Trail before everybody else! We know how much you love those Giveaways too. We just might have a trick or two up our sleeves for you Willionaire$!
This year, we’d like to thank:
HOTEL NOVOTEL TORONTO CENTRE
Now that I’m in the ‘burbs temporarily, a downtown presence means so much to me TIFF ’14 and this wonderful Hotel places me right where I need to be. I am so grateful for Hotel Novotel Toronto Centre for their generosity once again this year in providing accommodations for part of the Festival. After a long day at it, the first thing I need most comfort and a desk on which to update my Site. After enjoying my stay so much last year, Billy and I cannot wait to crash on that amazingly soft bed once again! I also am awful excited about that Breakfast Buffet at Cafe Nicole. Hello, Bread Bar! More here.
I’ll admit that I have never used a Tablet in my life so I look forward to trying one for the first time in style, the Galaxy Tab S from Samsung Canada. With its spacious screen, Super Amoled Display and Ultra Power Saving Mode, I’ll be counting on this Beauty to be my Communication Hub and perhaps even be blogging directly from it TIFF ’14!
For the first time also, I’ll be trying-out the Samsung Galaxy S5 as my main means of communication during the Festival. I look forward to Tweeting, Facebooking and Instagramming with all of you from that 5.1″ screen and up to 13 hours of battery life, about all my exciting Star Spottings and which Films you should be seeing! More here.
For the first time TIFF ’14, I’ll be operating fully with an SLR Camera thanks to Nikon Canada and their amazing Nikon D3300 HDSLR! I’ll be shooting in 24.2 megapixels and am rather excited about that wireless adapter for easy of uploading. Just think all those amazing Selfies and Red Carpet Snaps I’ll be posting with this! Can’t wait to see who we’ll spot and snap! More here.
I am a strong Believer in driving Hybrid Vehicles, not only for obvious environmental benefits, but also their fuel efficiency. I am so pumped – pardon the pun – to drive the 2015 Ford Fusion ENERGI SE this TIFF as I cruise along the Highway with my SiriusXM! Those heated front seats surely will come in handy on those chilly TIFF nights and its compact size is perfect for those tight spots downtown. More here.
Anyone who peeks into my wardrobe would know it’s basically all H&M. I adore H&M Canada and will be wearing them till the day I die. Once again this, I’m so honoured to be sporting pieces from the Powerhouse Retailer’s Fall 2014 Men’s Collection. My look has always been casual, fun, colourful and no-fuss, making H&M my perfect Companion. More here.
Anyone who lives in Southern Ontario knows exactly what to tune into any which time of the day. For the sixth consecutive year, I’ve been asked to contribute to CP24‘s TIFF ’14 coverage. Tune-in at any point throughout the Festival to see me either in-studio or on-the-street, in addition to the many Snaps I’ll be taking! Also at points during the Festival, I’ll be on Sister Station, CTV NEWS too! More here.
IT LOUNGE 2014
One of the most coveted Celebrity Gift Lounges won’t be that far away for my Willionaire$ this year! We are partnering with our friends at NKPR to give you a chance to win an exclusive IT Lounge Prize Pack/VIP Experience! Always been curious what Celebs get access to in those ultra-exclusive Lounges when they visit for TIFF? You’ll soon find out! More here.
OUT THERE TIFF HOSPITALITY SUITE AND LOUNGE
We love Melissa DiMarco and once again this year we’re thrilled to give Readers a chance to enjoy her Oasis situated out of Intercontinental Hotel. Don’t be surprised if you see a Star or four milling about! A great opportunity to relax, grab a bite/drink and mingle with Industry types.
Stay tuned, we’ll certainly have some surprises here throughout TIFF ’14 and were happy to bring some of our Readers to Red Carpet Premieres up-close and personal with the likes of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson and Jake Gyllenhaal. Some even got to attend some glam Parties!
