Last night, the SHARP + S/ Festival Experience played host to The Blackhouse Gala, which celebrated the best in Black talent and honoured TIFF’s artistic director, Cameron Bailey. The Blackhouse Foundation, which was formed in 2006 to preserve and further advance Black cinema, has continued to impact the community through panels, events, and public exhibitions during film festivals, including Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Los Angeles Film Festival, and most recently, Toronto International Film Festival.
DJ Chris Laroque kept guests such as E! News’ Tyrone Edwards and Cityline’s Tracy Moore dancing, while pop-up partners Legend, Volvo, Harley Davidson, Chopard, and Prada kept the fun flowing.
