When Cameron Bailey, co - head and Artistic Director of TIFF, asked that I be an Ambassador this year, I thought about my younger self - the one standing in the back of the Royal York Hotel hoping one day I would find my place in the community. While the festival is bereft of red carpets and live press conferences, it has given me the space to think about how meaningful this festival has been to me - not only as an actor from Toronto but also as a girl who has always loved going to the movies. With the traditional pomp and circumstance of their exhibition taken away, it's the films themselves that have received the spotlight.
Heavyweight warmth, in a lightweight construction. The Armstrong Parka is crafted using Feather - Light Ripstop with CORDURA fabric reinforcement at high - abrasion areas, making it both incredibly light and incredibly durable.

It was nice to compare the two side by side and see what I do and don't like. But the issue was I didn't like the jacket. I kept www.canadagoosesaler.com it for a few more days (only wearing it in my apartment) deciding what to do, and I just didn't find myself reaching for it to go out, so I sent it back.
Piled high with blankets and clutching hot teas, we sat under the stars in pods six feet apart and were moved by a film that we might never have seen if it weren't for this film festival. It was as if I was a teen again, happy to get out of my house for the night, giddy to be in the excellent company, and excited to be at the movies after months of streaming things at home. While this TIFF will always remain markedly different from the previous years and hopefully from the years to come, one thing remains unchanged for me: I love movies because of their humanity.
