MOCCA (formerly known as the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art – MOCCA) has been celebrated for its incisive, artist-centric approach to programming, and hospitable visitor experiences. This spring 2018, the MOCCA will take on a new location in the heart of the Junction Triangle (formerly on Queen St W). This new venue will be a huge opportunity for the museum to seek a larger space that can accommodate the museum’s ever-growing aspirations and significance.

It’s Toronto International Film Festival, TIFF* season in Toronto once again, and the city is buzzing with anticipation of celebrity sightings, secret cocktail parties, and the instant Hollywood Glamour bestowed upon Toronto during this magical time. But this isn’t just a film festival for Toronto, it’s a film festival that has put Canada on the map as a major contender for the film industry, and we couldn’t be more proud of Canadians success. In this spirit “Hollywood North Lounge” was created a party to celebrate Canadians on their achievements, and to nourish our young creative local talent.

Celebrating Hollywood North’s third year, we are the only Canadian content driven event during TIFF, designed for Canadians by Canadians. Hollywood North is by definition a celebration of Canadian talent in film, which transcends into fashion, music, art, and innovation. We believe that our local talent is undeniable and unstoppable.  They say it takes a village to make a movie, and luckily in St. Lawrence Iroquoian the word Kanata or loosely translated as ‘Canada’ does mean ‘village’. This year our premier VIP networking event is being held at Brassaii Dinner Supper Club, located at 461 King Street West, Toronto.

The VIP reception is from 7pm – 10pm, with the red carpet call for 7-8pm. Guests can enjoy music courtesy of Paris DJ GG Jackson, and local club favourite DJ Sumation.

Make sure to dress to impress, as we will have 4 official photographers and a videographer to capture guests with secret VIP celebrities who will be making special appearances all night. Also, bring your business cards; it is a networking event after all.

Guests can indulge in complimentary drinks courtesy of our generous sponsors such as, local craft brew ACE Hill, Tag Vodka from Oakville, ON, Gibson’s Finest Canadian Whiskey, and Noxx & Dunn rum from Florida for that international touch. If guests simply need to stay hydrated from too much fun over the TIFF opening weekend, then Hollywood North has you covered with complementary Evian Water and Tonica Kambucha mocktails. Vip gifting includes sponsored products from Lush Cosmetics, Schwartzkopf, Vasanti Cosmetics, PonyDry and more.

Event partners Mode Events, Toronto Creatives, and CanWood Entertainment, has recruited the talents of CityEvents for their public relations expertise, and The Opulent Club renowned night club promotions experience, to make this year’s event truly memorable for guests attending this authentically Canadian event. Hollywood North event is a professional networking event, hosting some of Canada’s most talented and influential people, with a mandate to increase business for Canadian talent through peer exchange. In recent years we’ve had Juno nominees, Oscar nominees, to fortune 500 companies upper management attend our events.

We look forward to hosting you with true Canadian hospitality, and look forward to many more years of growth for our attendees in their careers. They say it takes a village to raise a child, but it also takes a village to help lift each other up towards success. Have a wonderful TIFF everyone!
