iPOP at the Toronto International Film Festival (Part 6)

by Brian Brooks/indieWIRE

The Toronto International Film Festival began to wind down at the start of the weekend, with the number of nightly events declining. Still, Lobby on Bloor Street West near the center of most fest screenings was the site of a glitzy affair for TriggerStreet.com. Kevin Spacey pulled up in a car, stopping traffic as the assembled photographers lit up the street with their flashes. TriggerStreet head Ross Partridge socialized inside along with the nicely dressed crowd, while passersby on the sidewalk waited to catch a glimpse of Spacey or anyone else they may recognize. Also in iPOP, the director and star from "Noi Albinoi," which played in Toronto, and Berlin International Film Festival programmer, Wieland Speck.




Kevin Spacey posed for more pics inside along with William Morris' John Mass before heading into the party. Budweiser was featured prominently at the party, but many in the crowd opted for white wine on the humid night.

A cavernous tent was erected Saturday night for the closing night party festivities for Toronto. In the center are replications of Jeff Balsmeyer's "Danny Deckchair"'s balloons and deck chairs spotlighting the film, which closed the festival.
