The TIFF party we are most excited for right now, Diet Coke’s Stay Extraordinary Gala, will celebrate old Hollywood glamour and boasts a performance by UK rock-soul-hip-hop Queen, Estelle. Taking place at our new favourite venue, The Hoxton, this will be a night to celebrate what we love most about the movies and experience an intimate concert from a way-cool performer.

Estelle hooked us a few years back when she collaborated with Kanye West for the internationally loved American Boy and we can’t wait for her when her new album releases. This woman knows how to get us shaking.

Celebrating extraordinary actors whose elegance, talent and performances on the silver screen are both timeless and mesmerizing, it’s time to raid Cabaret and work it retro glam. Think Marilyn Monroe’s ruby-red pout, Sophia Loren’s cat eye or Audrey Hepburn’s defined brow….oh, you know we are going all out.

Themed cocktails will be passed by old school cigarette girls and Parkdale’s Parts and Labour will design a special themed menu. We expect guest appearances from some serious TIFF talent, but mostly want to see you!

The Diet Coke Stay Extraordinary Gala will take place on Sept 12 at The Hoxton. Guestlist in effect, so you gotta enter to win tix!
