Is there anything more exciting than a bunch of celebs descending upon Toronto for 11 days of films and festivalizing? The Toronto International Film Festival kicked off yesterday and celebs are starting to turn up in the 6ix and make our city a little more sparkly than usual.
While some stars slayed the red carpet premieres earlier in the evening, a number of them, including The Personal History of David Copperfield co-stars Dev Patel, Hugh Laurie and the TIFF Rising Stars, kept the vibe going well into the night at the TIFF ~after-parties~.
Take a peek below to see all the fun late-night action.
