By A.J.Lam
Under the cover of the spooky darkness of a blustery chilly Halloween night, superheroes and supervillains gathered to do battle at the 2019 annual TIFF BoomBox, Heroes Vs Villains edition.


For this special night, superheroes and supervillains battled in the capacity-filled TIFF Bell Lightbox, home of the annual Toronto International Film Festival, the “Festival of Festivals,” and according to the Globe and Mail, “the most important film festival in the world — the largest, the most influential, the most inclusive.”


As well as supporting the year-round programming of TIFF, these special heroes and villains enjoyed delicious delights such as fabulous food, unlimited liquor, artistic installations and scintillating performances.


TIFF, with the sensational support of performance supporters Anne-Marie Canning and Abby, Perry & Jordan Minuk, as well as the following event sponsors and partners, The GOoDS, Butter Chicken Roti, Donnelly Group, Pommies, Nutrl Vodka, Lost Craft, Escape Manor, Raw, Heretic Gin, Arterro Wines Canada and Cirque du Soleil, has succeeded once again to stage another exciting evening of Halloween revelry.


We would like to thank Kali Hopkins-Allen of TIFF for the invitation to this event.
