In its third year, the annual Birks Diamond Tribute to the Year’s Women in Film has quickly grown to become one of TIFF’s most anticipated events. It feels so good to be in a room surrounded by brilliant women who are shaping Canadian cinema and bringing international attention to homegrown film.

Birks recognizes the importance of proudly celebrating Canada’s dazzling female film talent,” says Eva Hartling, Vice President, Marketing & Communications of Birks Group Inc. “As an official sponsor of TIFF, Birks has a long history of supporting our domestic film industry and talent. We were thrilled to host the tribute at the Shangri-La for the first time this year.”

Beyond the film world, the sparkling event was also attended by notable members of the fashion and media community including Stacey McKenzie, Catriona Smart, Jenna BitoveNoreen Flanagan (Editor in Chief, ELLE Canada), Bernadette Morra (Editor in Chief, FASHION Magazine), Greta Constantine designer Kirk Pickersgill (who dressed Karine Vanasse), Stacey Mackenzie and Suzanne Boyd (Editor in Chief, ZOOMER).
