John Legend hosting free event in Toronto next month

Contrary to popular belief, there are some free events at the Toronto International Film Festival. But to access them, you might need to wait in line.

So get ready to queue outside of the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema on Tuesday, September 13 when John Legend and Mark Duplass (one half of the Duplass brothers duo), along with TIFF Vanguard programmer Colin Geddes, host a free night at the movies.

The event will celebrate the Vanguard films (described as dark and edgy) at TIFF 2016 and will spotlight three AXE Collective aspiring filmmakers all of whom have been mentored by Legend and Duplass.

Anyone's welcome to attend, but admission is first come, first served. And in addition to hearing from Legend, Duplass and up-and-coming filmmakers, this event will feature a DJ, popcorn, hors d'oeuvres, complimentary cocktails and dessert.
