Toronto stirs film frenzy

Stars say hello to Canada

Film fest fetes continued in full force after a jam-packed weekend here North of the Border.

Monday’s IFC dinner brought out helmers Catherine Breillat and Gus Van Sant and thesps Jena Malone, Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna. Late night, people gathered at Focus Features’ “Atonement” party, where Keira Knightley and helmer Joe Wright held court and Harvey Weinstein was seen glued to Jessica Alba‘s side.

Tuesday evening, Lionsgate’s reception at Lobby bar overlapped with MGM’s at the Hazelton hotel. While dinners that night included those for docu “Body of War,” “The Babysitters” and Miramax’s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.” Still, Miramax topper Daniel Battsek managed to find time to pop over to Italian eatery Sotto Sotto to catch up with fellow Brits Knightley and Jude Law.

The party continued Tuesday night at InStyle’s fete at the Windsor Arms Hotel, where Julian Schnabel brandished his arms in a bold sleeveless shirt. Miramax’s Kristin Jones noted the “Butterfly” helmer had done the press rounds earlier that day asking journalists to lie down while interviewing him. In an otherwise Toronto fest as usual, at least Schnabel’s shaking things up.
