TIFF Birks Diamond Tribute 2017

TIFF Birks Diamond Tribute 2017

On September 12, Birks and Telefilm hosted one of the most dazzling traditions at TIFF. The Birks Diamond Tribute to the Year’s Women in Film saluted twelve of Canada’s most accomplished talents. This year’s Honourees reflect Canada’s rich talent and the diversity of storytellers from coast-to-coast-to-coast: directors Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, Ashley McKenzie, Catherine Bainbridge, Chloé Leriche, and Mina Shum; actors Amanda Brugel, Ellen Wong, Kawennáhere Devery Jacobs, Mylène Mackay, and Shailyn Pierre-Dixon; and screenwriters Joanne Arseneau and Sherry White.
 
The chic, star-studded celebration was held at The Spoke Club with an elite gathering of attendees including Cheryl Hickey, Keshia Chante, Grego Minot, Stacey McKenzie and Lucia Remedios, and an extraordinary array of fine jewellery. Each of the honourees, plus a select group of special guests, wore hand-selected pieces from Birks’ newest fine jewellery collections.
