TIFF says
Join us for a celebration of the lives and careers of two spectacular women: Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.

Tickets on sale now to TIFF Members. On sale to the public on January 5 at 3pm (pending availability).

On Saturday, January 7 at 8pm, TIFF Bell Lightbox will simulcast HBO Canada's new documentary, Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, directed by Fisher Stevens and Alexis Bloom.

Jesse Wente, Director of Film Programmes and a living encyclopedia of Star Wars knowledge, will host an evening devoted to two heroines who broke ground for women in the movie industry. Following the screening, Wente and special guest Lainey Lui, co-host of CTV’s The Social, etalk Senior Correspondent, and founder/editor of Canadian entertainment website LaineyGossip.com, will lead an audience conversation about this inimitable mother-daughter pair — the performances, the writing, the battles to assert themselves in Hollywood, and the lifelong bond between them. As we mourn Fisher and Reynolds' recent passing, we invite you to commemorate their legacy with us.

In the spirit of celebration, we'll end the evening with a reception in the TIFF Lounge. Bring your memories of your favourite Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds roles. If you feel moved to come dressed as Princess Leia or Singin' in the Rain's Kathy Selden, you'll be more than welcome!

Thank you to HBO Canada for supporting this event.
