Campbell House to be party venue and night market

Get ready to go star-gazing at Queen and University next week because the Campbell House Museum will play host to a number of actors, directors and filmmakers during TIFF.

For the second year in a row, Canadian film distributor Mongrel Media is transforming the museum into Mongrel House, a dedicated space for its various events and after parties.

While you'll be able to get a glimpse of the action from the street, don't expect to be invited inside. This exclusive venue will feature a night market with food from St. Lawrence Market, live music, a ping-pong lounge and live karaoke - last year Geoffrey Rush brought down the house with a rendition of Love Shack.

The Mongrel House will be open from September 8 to 14. This year at the festival, Mongrel's showing 16 films, including many buzzed-about selections like The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer, Personal Shopper and Paterson.
