On Wednesday August 24th, President of NKPR, Natasha Koifman opened her doors to entertainment industry influencers, tastemakers and media for her agency’s annual Film Festival Countdown party. In partnership with MEC, Canada’s go-to place for outdoor gear, know-how and inspiration, the scene was primed beautifully for guests to enjoy good times outside. Guests chatted amongst an illuminated high-performance bicycle installation, while braver guests posed for selfies in the pool with MEC’s 17ft canoe! As always, the poolside venue was looking its best thanks to Caspar Haydar.
Kicking off Toronto’s film festival season, the annual event also featured a preview of NYC-based artist Peter Tunney’s upcoming charitable exhibit that will be hosted at the NKPR IT House during the festival. 50% of the sales of Tunney’s work will be donated to Artists for Peace and Justice. Tunney’s “Don’t Panic” piece set the backdrop for Philadelphia Flyers defenceman, Mike del Zotto, who was the event’s DJ for the evening.
