On the night of September 8, IndieWire’s female filmmaker dinner at the Toronto International Film Festival, presented by Canada Goose, celebrated women directors, such as Marielle Heller, Kasi Lemmons, Julie Delpy, Unjoo Moon, Haifaa Al-Mansour, Lauren Greenfield, and Alma Har’el.

From documentaries to animated outings, narrative debuts and even a tear-jerking biopic about the beloved Mr. Rogers, the female filmmakers at this year’s TIFF have bowed some of the buzziest films of the festival. On Sunday night, they bonded over their shared experience and talked about what it’s like to experience this world through their own lens.

The event took place at Toronto’s own The Purman, an event space located in the city’s downtown heart. Check out some of the evening’s many attendees below.
