Canadian Film Centre founder Norman Jewison’s annual private BBQ is a bit of a trek from TIFF central on King Street West, but it’s definitely worth the trip. This year’s fete will take place on September 9 at the CFC Windfields Estate, the centre’s colonial revival–style home base just north of the Bridle Path. It boasts orchards, a formal terrace and woodlands, plus stunning views of the city—and of celebrities like Sarah Gadon, Paul Haggis, Jim Cuddy, Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Reitman, who have all been seen touring the grounds during the festival.
