MuchFACT, A Foundation To Assist Canadian Talent, held their year-end screening party in Toronto! Established in 1984 to increase the number of quality music videos produced in Canada. It was also concurrent with the launch of MuchMusic which committed a percentage of its gross annual revenues to stimulate music video production. From the band The Arkells to Muchmusic VJs Lauren Toyota, Jesse Giddings and Phoebe Dykstra, celebrities & industry people alike came out for a night of great music videos and great company.
MuchFACT is funded entirely by Much and MuchMore, divisions of Bell Media.
I had attended this event on the same day as the Bench Digital Accessories Launch, thus, I was wearing the same clothes! It was also great to have bumped into fellow Toronto bloggers, Sharad Mohan, over at Freshly Educated Men during that night. This was my first time going to Century Room and I must say, I’m super impressed with this venue! It’s like the old meets the new!

I was fortunate enough to have met George Nozuka, Karl Wolf and Aliya Jasmine from MTV! However, I looked so bummy in most of the photos that I just could not post them on this blog! HAHA! I’m just happy that I got to shake their hands and give them my business cards! I feel like a little fan-girl! (^__^)
Here are some other photos from that night, it’s crazy the amount of people that can be packed into the place:
Before I had realized who it was, I had noticed the H&M x Versace skirt! It was the stunning Aliya Jasmine! It looked so pretty on her that it made me wish I had lined up for it!
I’m going to end this post with some bathroom shots of Joyce and I. Of course, being the camera whores that we were, it was the first thing that crossed our minds when we saw the full length mirror in the bathroom! HAHA ~
Next post will be of all the goodies that I took home that night! (Sorry, I’m blogging from JL’s computer today and all my photos are on my computer!) Will have those posted by tomorrow!
