TIFF held a wicked party at its Lightbox to raise funds for Share Her Journey campaign supporting women in film on October 25, 2018. Torontoartsandevents was there to capture this exciting event and the guest’s amazing costumes.
Lightbox was transformed into a spooky Halloween party destination.
Upon entry guests were spooked by the display “When Birds Attack”, a Hitchcock inspired art installation based upon the movie, the Birds.
The “House of Horrors” delivered scary thrills with a Vincent Price like touch by getting lost in the expansive maze of mirrors followed by a cage match between monsters Dracula and She-Wolf.
Toronto’s top queens excited the crowd into a dancing frenzy: Priyanka, Tynomi Banks, Jada Hudson, Sapphire Titha Reign, and Allysin Chaynes as they took the stage for Lip Sync for Your Death
Guests danced up a storm with The Ripleys, a one-night-only musical ensemble who all dressed like Ripley from the sci-fi classic Alien.
Kardinal Offishall and DJ Cipha Sounds provided the tunes for Boombox’s large dance floor where guests danced.
Funds raised at Boombox went towards supporting Share Her Journey, TIFF’s five-year commitment to increasing participation, skills, and opportunities for women behind and in front of the camera.
