PHOTOS: Canadian Film Fest’s Canada Party at TIFF

OHHHH C-A-N-A-D-A, you know how to party. With many TIFF parties having an air of pretentiousness, we wholeheartedly embraced the relaxed and chill vibes at CFF’s annual and beloved Canada Party, hosted by the house of cool Canadiana: The Drake Hotel.

With Miss Vickie’s chip stations in every corner and drink sponsors like Beau’s Brewing and Farmhouse Cider, this fête was all about kicking back and having fun. (Perfect, cuz by TIFF Day 5, we no longer have the energy or patience to deal with shitty people and their BS conversations.)

Beyond all the film talent circulating The Drake, we also lurked behind Shad and A Tribe Called Red, crossing our fingers that maybe they’d take the stage for an impromptu show, but we were content just being in their presence. (Insert praise hands emoji.)

With films like It’s Only the End of the World (Xavier Dolan), Below Her Mouth (April Mullen), and Window Horses (Anne Marie Flemming) being some of the most buzzed-about films at TIFF, there was a lot to celebrate. So we made a dance circle and whipped out our best moves to the infectious sounds of Director X.
