Toronto, Sept. 7, 2011 - From A-listers to red carpet events, Purolator will be a part of Canadian and international film history as it proudly announces a three-year partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), as the exclusive sponsor in the Express and Ground Courier Services category.
TIFF has entrusted Purolator to help deliver the ten-day festival, from September 8 to 18, 2011, and year-round at its headquarters, the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
“Our company is proud to be part of a true Canadian success-story”, said Mr. Ramsey Mansour, VP Marketing at Purolator. “This new opportunity enables Purolator to play a ‘supporting role’ as part of a great Canadian cast and crew. We are very excited about the opportunity to work with TIFF in delivering entertainment to Canadians and around the world.”
TIFF has become known worldwide as the launching ground for many of the best Canadian, Hollywood and international films and is recognized as one of the most important film festivals around the world.
Purolator is also the proud sponsor of the screening of The Artist, a silent, black-and-white melodrama starring John Goodman and French actor Jean Dujardin, taking place at the Elgin Theatre on Friday, September 9, 2011 at 6 p.m.
Directed by Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist is a fabulously entertaining film which takes place at Kinograph Studios, Hollywoodland, from 1927 to 1931 during the silent film era and the stock market crash. The film premiered at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews with Dujardin winning the Best Actor Award for his performance.
