Festival Fever

Gearing up for TIFF

As the festival quickly approaches, my in-box is getting flooded with screening schedules, interview confirmations and party invites. Hopefully I’ll manage to find some time to check out the celebrity gifting suites at the Intercontinental Hotel to see what the stars will be taking home this year. The Tastemasters Lounge, celebrating its 6th year, will be offering up Bamjamz and Guatz organic wear, Joe Fresh Beauty products and tasty treats from my favourite organic eatery, Rawlicious, in the Junction. They’ll also be doing an online auction with Mattel board games autographed by celebs (with a portion of the proceeds going to the SickKids Foundation). Meanwhile, The DPA (Dubois, Pelin and Associates) suite will have big-ticket items on display including destination travel packages from Pearl Resorts & Spa in Tahiti. The goodies stars will leave with here? Manitoba Mukluks and lomography cameras. They’ll also be offered mini facial treatments. Wonder who will be spotted getting pampered first?
