Recap + Photos: TIFF Boombox 2019

By: Curtis Sindrey –

The TIFF Lightbox hosted a ghoulishly fun Halloween party on Halloween night that will be hard to top next year.

Featuring a Cirque du Soleil performance of their ongoing show Alegria, plus great eats, including a sinfully delicious chocolate cake dripping with chocolate ganache from The Grand Order of Divine Sweets, and drinks, including Ruffino’s 2017 IL Ducale, Nütrl vodka, and Pommies cider, a fabulous drag show, along with some of the most creative costumes in the city, the party was a rousing success in support of TIFF’s year-round initiatives.

While there was an unsurprising abundance of Joker/Poison Ivy/Insert Movie Superhero here costumes, personal shoutouts go to the obscure Simpsons reference costumes featuring the Stonecutters, Bob Dole, and the heroic inanimate carbon rod.

Overall, this was an amazing experience that appealed to every kind of demon, ghoul, and ghost. Here’s to Boombox 2020 and eagerly anticipating if it can top this year’s unforgettable event.
