The list was specially curated to include some of the most accomplished international supervisors who shape the sound of film, television, advertising and video games. This year’s Café will take place September 12-13, 2016 at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen Street West) and will be open to accredited filmmakers, producers and industry professionals attending the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Notable supervisors participating in the 2016 Café include Tracy McKnight whose high-profile film credits include The Hunger Games, Selma and Beasts of No Nation; CBS Music Supervisor Samuel Diaz who handles music supervision for CBS properties such as NCIS, Blue Bloods and the recently wrapped The Good Wife; and Lindsay Wolfington who since establishing her own company Lone Wolf Music, has been the music supervisor on One Tree Hill, The Royals and Shadowhunters.
“Our main goal for the Café is to create a space for music supervisors and up-and-coming Canadian music talent to meet, discover and collaborate,” said Michael Perlmutter, Supervisor at instinct entertainment and curator of the Canadian Music Café. “We have the largest contingent of supervisors we’ve had in the Café’s 8-year existence who will bring a wealth of experience to this year’s event.”
New this year, the Café has partnered with Entertainment One to offer industry attendees a very special “Song-to-Scene” experience. Each Café artist will play one of his or her songs live along with a scene from a known film. This unique opportunity will demonstrate how the Café’s artists can enhance emotion and storytelling through their music and makes the Café a must-attend event for film industry professionals.
