Giorgio Armani and the Films of the City Frames TIFF Event

On September 6th, 2014, Mandeq and I went to TIFF the Films of the City Frames.

Honestly, the whole event was really prestigious and felt high class, but the most interesting thing was that the crowd of people was pleasant.

Mandeq and I went to the back, close to the theatre door, and met fashion journalist Lolitta Dandoy; Jamaican-Canadian Model Stacey McKenzie; and many other Canadian celebrities. To be in the presence of strong, successful women in the fashion industry was very inspirational.

As I am a very determined person, I told Mandeq that we were going to get a picture of Oscar award-winning director Edward Zwick. So said, so done. When you have confidence and uprightness in yourself, you’re honestly unstoppable. Not only did we get a picture, we also got his autograph. I admired 3 of the short films, which were by London, New York and LA director John Benardo.

I felt posh and rich, excited to meet amazing people, especially upcoming film directors and students. I even met students from the Toronto Film School, which was really interesting.

Overall I had blast, and hope to go on another adventure again.

Cheers,

Ruth. G
