“French cinema. The 60’s. The charm of bourgeoisie. The absurdity of escaping from aristocratic Paris to moonlight as a prostitute…”

Cocktail Countdown

Posted on

On Wednesday evening the NKPR team attended one of our favourite pre-festival events: The NKPR Cocktail Countdown Presented by SKYY Vodka! This year’s countdown was hosted at The Spoke Club, an elegant respite from the flashing bulbs and red carpets for Hollywood’s elite. Each year media and special guests gather to toast to another exciting film festival and gear up for the glamorous, fast-paced time of the year. We had a great time reuniting with fellow film festival veterans, all while sipping on the new Official SKYY TIFF cocktails (always an exciting unveiling) and indulging in Jelly Modern donuts and Spoke Club risotto! What better way to kick off the festival?
