The annual HUGO BOSS bash, which in years past has given parties for the such films as La La Land, I, Tonya and Beautiful Boy, this year hosted the to-do of night four for Endings, Beginnings, director Drake Doremus’s latest, which had its world premiere at the festival. Montecito was the spot, and the cast, of course, was out, among them Sebastian Stan, Jamie Dornan and lead Shailene Woodley, whose past credits include, Big Little Lies, which she starred in alongside Nicole Kidman, whose latest The Goldfinch also premiered last night.

TIFF 2019: Updated – The Globe’s latest ratings and reviews of movies screening at the festival

Around the corner at RBC House, Academy Award-winner Allison Janney was front and centre at the world premiere toast for her latest film Bad Education. Out as well were co-stars Ray Romano and Geraldine Viswanathan, the film’s composer Michael Abels and its director Cory Finley (Bad Education is his second feature film). Earlier in the evening, the same space hosted the cast of The Song of Names for a pre-premiere gathering to celebrate the François Girard-directed film. The cast, including Tim Roth and Jonah Hauer-King, were joined by well-wishers director Robert Lantos and actor Danny DeVito.

Earlier in the evening, uptown at the Four Seasons, on offer was a Sunday night dinner, served the night before the premiere of director Barry Avrich’s new film David Foster: Off the Record, which centres on the famed songwriter and record producer who’s worked with everyone from Streisand to Celine to Bublé (all of whom appear in the doc). The man of the hour was there, and in attendance was Foster’s wife, actor Katharine McFee (she’s in the film, too), and singer Sheléa, who took to the grand piano in the centre of the room and performed post-dinner.

Late last night, over at Don Alfonso, some of the cast of The Goldfinch gathered at an Audi-hosted party to celebrate their film’s premiere – Luke Wilson and director John Crowley were the notables.
