Festival Music House – Where film and music meet for TIFF

One of my favorite Toronto International Film Festival Events every year is Festival Music House.

Since 2010, Festival Music House has been where the brains behind the best film scores and soundtracks gather together to take in what the Canadian music industry has to offer.  Film and television industry tastemakers came together at Queen Street’s iconic Velvet Underground  to network, sip drinks and explore Canada’s wealth of world-class musical talent during the height of TIFF.  Past FMH performers include Barenaked Ladies, Keys N Krates, K’NAAN, Half Moon Run, City and Colour, Sloan, A Tribe Called Red, Gord Downie, Kid Koala and Stars. 

This year Festival Music house was produced on behalf of Radio Starmaker Fund by Arts & Crafts. The invite only event featured performances by HolleradoMatt MaysGabrielle Shonk and Belle Game. Attendees danced the rest of the the night away to the beats of Toronto’s own, Grandtheft in a lively DJ set.

Addicted was there, and our shooter got some amazing photos of these Canadian rockstars in action. Check out shots below!
