TIFF HONOURS HOPKINS AND WINSLETT

The Toronto International Film Festival turned up the virtual glamour with a star-studded awards fundraiser last night.

Honoured were 82-year old Sir Anthony Hopkins and 44 year old Kate Winslett.

In accepting the TIFF Tribute Award, Winslett described her film “Ammonite” as the quiet, intimate love story of two women from opposite lives, the love they discover for one another and the importance of a woman’s integrity and passion.

The gala, held online this year because of the pandemic, celebrates standout creators in the film industry and raises funds for TIFF’s year-round programming
