TIFF '17 x Huawei Portrait Studio: Day 3

Can you resist Jake Gyllenhaal's smoulder?

Sep 10, 2017

The 6ix God himself visited the Toronto International Film Festival in support of Sean Menard’s unprecedented look into the career of the six-foot-six, eight-time NBA All-Star, Vince Carter, in The Carter Effect. The director, Menard, popped into the TIFF x Huawei Portrait Studio before joining a throng of Raptors on King Street pre-premiere.

Not to be outdone, Molly's Game and Stronger brought out the big guns — Aaron Sorkin, Jessica Chastain, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Tatiana Maslany — for some face time. Plus: The beloved South Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho!

The TIFF x Huawei Portrait Studio photos are taken by Toronto’s own Kourosh Keshiri (with a Huawei P10 in his arsenal).
