GREY GOOSE® vodka and Soho House Toronto hosted two private parties to celebrate the world premiere of My Days of Mercy as well as the Canadian premiere of Downsizing at the Toronto International Film Festival. The night began upstairs on Soho House’s third floor Pretzel and Bell Bar with a casual, early evening cocktail to fete My Days of Mercy with Oscar nominee and Canadian powerhouse Ellen Page as well as Kate Mara, Amy Seimetz, director Tali Shalom Ezer, producer Christine Vachon. Later, the festivities moved downstairs to Soho House’s first floor Club Bar for the Downsizing after-party. DJ Zen Freeman took to the decks as cast members Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Warren Belle, Director Alexander Payne and screenwriter Jim Taylor chatted with guests.
Soho House and French luxury brand GREY GOOSE vodka have co-hosted film industry events and parties for nine concurrent years during the Toronto International Film Festival, as part of their ongoing support of the film community.
Grey Goose has deepened its ties to the film industry this year by introducing a new Q&A format brunch series at Toronto hotspot Lavelle entitled “Grey Goose Cocktails and Conversations” – an intimate discussion series showcasing the vision, inspiration and creativity of the best in film. On Monday morning, Grey Goose hosted a brunch with Disobedience director Sebastián Lelio and the film’s stars Rachel Weisz, Rachel McAdams and Alessandro Nivola in celebration of the film’s world premiere. Guests attendees were invited to sit down with the panel members for a morning of meaningful film conversation accompanied by a brunch-time cocktail: handcrafted GREY GOOSE vodka Caesars with a series of elevated custom garnishes and served alongside a French-inspired brunch.
The film industry strives to celebrate relentless ambition. Like GREY GOOSE vodka’s creator François Thibault, who succeeded to create a vodka of exceptional quality and uncompromising taste, both the film industry and GREY GOOSE share the same daring spirit and passionate pursuit of the extraordinary; after all “if you can imagine it, it can be done.” (François Thibault).
