Three ACTRA Toronto Committees Host Studio District Film Party

In celebration of TIFF 2015, three ACTRA Toronto committees and HangLoose Media hosted an invitation-only Studio District Film Party. Held at HangLoose Media Studios at 28 Logan Ave. in the heart of Toronto’s studio district, guests and press enjoyed stunning film projections while aerialists performed 20 feet above the crowd. Entertainment included a live orchestra plus a DJ spinning in an elevated booth later in the evening.

The VIP red carpet kicked off with the cast and creative team of Fire Song. A dynamic group of diverse, female and young performing artists celebrated their achievements in film and television, including award-winning actors, directors, writers and producers – an exclusive crowd with an inclusive vibe.

Amid the celebratory atmosphere, the party aimed to draw attention to the under-representation and misrepresentation of female, young emerging and diverse performers in the media. Living this reality, a growing collective of creators are fighting back, creating their own work.

“Under-heard voices are increasingly writing and producing their own stories,” say event organizers Sarena Parmar and Jackie English. “It is an important step in the development of roles for diverse, young and female actors.”

“It’s so exciting to witness the passion and stories coming out of these vibrant ACTRA Toronto committees,” said ACTRA Toronto President David Sparrow.
