Mongrel Media Celebrates TIFF Films


For its fifth year, Toronto’s Campbell House Museum was transformed into Mongrel House, a four-day celebration (September 5 – 8) put on by Mongrel Media honoring nine of their films premiering at TIFF and the silver anniversary of Canada’s leading film distribution company.

The nightly film party is not only known as one of the best places to network, but also for their buffet of nightly programming and entertainment for invited filmmakers, talent and industry guests.

This year, guests were treated to the Johnny Walker Experience with two signature cocktails available to enjoy. Afterwards guests could go upstairs to try karaoke with a live band. Those wanting a more low-key experience could go downstairs where Toronto’s meditation studio Hoame had practitioner’s that were leading meditations, performing Reiki and offering Crystal Readings. Guests could also visit the Cineplex photo booth on the main floor.

















Mongrel House is by far TIFF’s most sought after party invite due to the mix of experiences. One minute you are enjoying some (or all) of the offerings from the many food and drink stations in the courtyard, and the next minute you are playing ping-pong with that actor you had a crush on since last TIFF. The tented area with a bar and ample seating provides a comfortable place for guests to mingle while listening to the nightly live music. There are many parties you could be at during TIFF, but this is the party you want to be at.
