TIFF #TBT: revisiting festivals past

August 25, 2016

We can’t wait until Sept.8, 2016!

With the 41st annual Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) just two weeks away, the FAJO team is busy preparing for our coverage, including exclusive A-lister interviews, Red Carpet photographs and celebrity sightings.

Despite our excitement for this year’s festival, we can’t help but think back to all the amazing TIFFs we’ve had the pleasure of attending. So, today, we’re throwing it back to past TIFF Red Carpets, parties and interviews.


Talking with A-list actors about their craft is (in part) why TIFF is one of Toronto’s most anticipated annual events. In past years, our team has chatted with many talented celebrities, including:

Salma Hayek about her role in The Prophet and her thoughts on the author’s choice of naming her character Kamila.

Al Pacino on the film Manglehorn and what he thinks about walking the Red Carpet.

Kate Winslet about motherhood, glamour and her role in Labor Day.

Jason Reitman and Josh Brolin on what they enjoyed about working together during the filming of Labor Day.

Elle Fanning about how dressing as a boy helped with her role in the film About Ray.


Who could forget the fun and glamorous TIFF parties? Take a look at some of the coolest TIFF bashes we’ve attended over the years:

Nikki Beach White Party: a luxury beach-club concept, guests were dressed to impress! Check out the Best Dressed attendees here.

Little Mizz Innocent party: held at Via Vai, with a guest appearance by Oscar winner Christopher Plummer.

The Drake Overdrive TIFF launch party: complete with free drinks, tattoos and haircuts, this was definitely one of the most rockstar-inspired TIFF parties we’ve attended.

Red Carpet style

Kate Hudson in a classic white Alexander McQueen gown, Jennifer Lawrence in a Dior gown and Kate Winslet in Jenny Packham – TIFFs Red Carpet is always one of the most looked-forward-to fashion events of the year.

We’ve put together a gallery of our favourite past TIFF Red Carpet looks, shot by our photography team, for you to enjoy.
