Events | Stanley Kubrick at @TIFF_Net ⬅ Don’t miss this one!

Last week I had the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the Stanley Kubrick exhibit now open at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. IT WAS AWESOME. I was at BOOMBOX, the annual TIFF Fundraiser. You might remember last years crazy Cronenberg exhibit.

Here’s some snaps from the event via at TIFF by Connie Tsang. The Instagram photos are mine of course!

You should DEFINITELY check this out. Great for fans and if you are not a fan yet you will be when you leave those doors. I hadn’t see 2001: A Space Odyssey but after being in the space ship, I had to watch it last weekend.

The exhibit features rare photographs, letters, original props and costumes (so cool!), screenplays, production materials, and cameras from his nearly 50-year career. For more information check out BOOMBOXStanley Kubrick: The Exhibition@TIFF_NET on Twitter, and  @TIFF_NET on Instagram.



#TIFF14: CFC Annual BBQ Fundraiser for Canadian Film



Yesterday I attended the Annual CFC BBQ at the Canadian Film Centre w/ Sean and the team from 1188 Films. His company was an event sponsor and was demoing the latest Oculus Rift part of David Cronenberg’s Body Mind Change project. You may remember my slight obsession w/ POD and Body Mind Change last year.

The Canadian Film Centre is absolutely gorgeous. Follow @CFCCreates for all kinds of news, info, and behind the scenes stuff about Canadian Film. I’ll be working with CFC later this year for the Buffer Festival celebrating top YouTube talent. Stay tuned right here for that!

Live for now. #PepsiPopUp


Last night wrapped 5 days of free concerts and interactive events at the PepsiPopUp at Richmond & John downtown Toronto. I stopped in to meet up with my contest winners and rock out a bit. I like this director’s chair look, don’t you?


The show opened w/ Crystalyne who is about to go on tour across Asia. They were followed by Virginia to Vegas, also from Toronto. The pop-up was really neat because it only fit 200 people making the shows really intimate.



Loved this Pop Art

Style award goes to this man w/ the awesome leather pants, creepers, and killer shades

As I was leaving a colleague at Pepsi said she overheard some girls on their way out say “Did you see Casie Stewart?”, “Yeah, that was her!”.  I think they were too shy to say hello so, girls, if you are reading this, HIIIII! Don’t ever be shy to say hello if you see me out, I wanna meet you!

The Toronto International Film Festival is on for a few more days and I’ve got some fun things in my schedule. My mantra for the day is LIVE FOR NOW. Remember, you’ll never be younger than you are today!
