It's one of the city's biggest events and ELLE Canada has the scoop on where to go to catch a glimpse of the rich and famous.
For a guaranteed quick celebrity fix, grab a Chai Latte from Starbucks and take an early morning stroll down Cumberland St in Yorkville. This Tony neighbourhood is TIFF Ground Zero and it's where you'll find the highest concentration of movie stars. If purging your pocket book is of no consequence, try to book a languid lunch reservation at Sassafraz (100 Cumberland St), Sotto Sotto (116 Avenue Rd) Café Nervosa (75 Yorkville Ave) or the newly opened celebrity favourite Le Pain Quotidien (10 Yorkville Ave). The longer you stick around, the better your chances of sightings, so tip your wait staff generously; they'll be more apt to allow you that fourth cup of coffee.
If your dancing shoes are screaming for attention, then the TIFF festival after-parties are for you. On Friday, September 12th work your charms to get into Ultra Supper Club (314 Queen Street West) where girl-about-town Lindsay Lohan is hosting a party with her girlfriend DJ Samantha Ronson. The following night, (364 Richmond Street West) brings in Benji Madden to spin some records for a party hosted by his love interest, Paris Hilton.
Follow this guide and you're guaranteed to spot at
least one A-lister, but in case you find yourself celeb-less during the Festival, check back with ELLECanada.com for our official TIFF coverage!
