The Toronto International Film Festival is the leading public film festival in the world, screening more than 300 films from 60+ countries every September.
Their programmers have earned a reputation for excellence, and a diverse array of films are shown: Hollywood galas, complete with red carpet glamour; the best in international cinema, the latest homegrown comedies… and everything in between.
TIFF films are divided into Programmes to help guide your choices. Love horror flicks? Check out Midnight Madness! Feeling edgy? Try Vanguard. Need a mini stay-cation? Contemporary World Cinema may be for you.
We have been supportive of the TIFF since our inception...you missed this year's festivities but you can look back on it via their WEBSITE...and plan now for next year!
Richard Pryor...arguably the funniest man to ever pick up a microphone and tell jokes has been brought back to life yet again in a new Showtime documentary. We have been down this road before-Comedy Central did a doc on Mr. Pryor some years ago called "I'm Not Dead Yet!" (expletives deleted) that was overseen by his last wife and featured commentary by many of his peers. But this one proves to be as good and better with even more celebrities chiming about not just the funniest moments but also his more tragic realities as well. If you are familiar with the RP story (see "JoJo Dancer, Your Life Is Calling") then you already know. You should see that as Richard Pryor himself is starring in it along with actor-friend Debbie Allen and many others. We thought that film said all that needed to be said...but after these documentaries you will learn more-and even be haunted by how his very essence seems to come alive on screen.

#mixtogomiami was destined to be THE destination for the very best in nightlife in Miami Beach. We are #amplified about the responses we have gotten from our team on the new addition to the #mixtogomassive expansion into Miami Beach. It was meant to be a monthly weekend of parties-a "Mix To Go Music Marathon"-and now we are quickly becoming one of the premier voices on what is hot in Miami Beach nightlife!
We hope everyone will #partyresponsibly as they venture into the night. The weather is cooling down a bit and that means you can enjoy a nice walk in South Beach from Mansion at the northern end to Room Service (only a few blocks down) to Bamboo (a few more blocks down) to Story, then from Collins to Ocean Drive where you end up at LIV for Paul Oakenfold's rare SoBe set.
We are supporters of all kinds of dance music but our favorites are house, EDM and top 40 dance mash ups. Everything else falls in-between these formats so when you go to any of our top 4 selections below, you will hear a little of them all!
We didn't mention ALL of the hotspots in SoBe or Miami Beach; that is NOT the point! We are here to give you the HOTTEST. If you disagree then send us a note via our twitter.com/mixtogo or join "Mix To Go Massive" on Facebook and let's talk about it!
Until then enjoy our choices for this weekend below!

DJs are everywhere: in the clubs, lounges, bars, hotel lobbies, Sephora (yes the perfume and cosmetic chain), pool parties, rooftops, ferry and cruise ships, Govenor's Island (search "Electric Zoo" and "Rock The Bells"), parades (see "Dance Parade," the "Puerto Rican Day Parade" and "Brooklyn Carnival" tomorrow) the red carpet and on half of the songs you hear on the radio.
But have you been following our Coney Island boardwalk posts (join "Mix To Go Massive" on Facebook)? We have been there since 2007. And this past Friday we were at East River Park on the Lower East Side when 4 titans of the underground house music scene came together to celebrate what they called "hookie day."
DJ Dat Curly, Ray Vasquez, Lil Ray and Kervyn Mark were the engineers of great dance music that afternoon.It began about 12noon and went on until 8pm. Until Curly got on the mic and announced "we are extending the party to 10pm!" much to the delight of everyone there. If you would like to experience this grand collection of great DJs on great sound systems with dancers who come "as they are" and some of the best landmarks in NYC parks then mark your calendars:September 8
