Toronto, Canada |

The Toronto Film Festival holds international ground with film and McDonalds. McDonald’s McCafe – which recently re-launched its espresso menu –  was the official coffee sponsor of the film festival. Instead of just b-rolling its product through films or leaving it to print posters to do the job, it created a video campaign where barista a la directors could present its new menu as filmed scenes with coffee commentary.

The Golden Arches are digging in.

Brothers and civilians behind Civil Coffee expanded their tag ‘It’s a good day to be Civil ‘ to ‘It’s a good day to be civil…at an office party’ for the official opening of the performance and event venue Office Party in Highland Park.

The party was an open house moderated with indie grown labels providing vitals of food: Tyler Wells, wine, Pour This, music – Chances With Wolves and The Flash Dance. All this culture converging, can’t you see why it was a party. Now open for coffee breaks.
