Open World Toronto Film Festival (OWTFF) 2019

OWTFF takes place on November 7, 8 and 10

The Open World Toronto Film Festival (OWTFF) takes place on Nov 7-8-10 at the Tartu College at 310 Bloor st W and Nov 9 at 21 College St.   

I was first greeted at the door by President Sabine Mondestin and Director Steve Lareau. They were the nicest people I have ever met. They showed me around the room and brought me to my first conversation of the evening with Aline Kurik. Aline is a wonderful individual. Aline offered me a drink and a few snacks while I roamed around the room to meet some other guest(s).

Yes… I am bubbly once I get to know you, but truthfully I am really shy. Tonight, I didn’t really have to worry because of my good friend Angelica Alejandro. Angelica is probably the most respected individual in the business. Everyone runs over to her and I will tell you why. She is probably the sweetest person I have ever met. 

Anyway, with Angelica’s help, over the next few days at Open World Toronto Film Festival, I met some wonderful actors, actresses, hosts, producers, directors, etc… I was introduced to Mark Datuin, Elle A, Limor Markovzki, Jeffrey Benson, Gianluca Olmastroni, Peter Mazzucco, Valérie Angèle Lecomte, Suzanne Pratley, Trish Rainone, Andre Gaumond, Shanti Dhore, Roshahn Dhoré, Leilah Dhoré, Jay Harmony, and many many more.

I think it was really cool that everyone treated each other like family. This is how close and comfortable everyone is with one another. At the Open World Toronto Film Festival, we are there to cheer each other on while we enjoy and learn from one another about the film industry. I think I made a good first impression and I hope to see everyone real soon and hmmm.. possibly collaborate.
