Another year, another Film Stars photo series! Funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, this year’s exhibit was entitled PERCEPTION.
Led and partaken in by an entirely female crew, PERCEPTION was captured by veteran Emily Hill, and coordinated for the first time by Samantha Williams. Flowing with the #MeToo movement, PERCEPTION redirected beauty standards away from the male gaze and societal norms to a female perspective on an individual basis. Persons identifying as female from across the GTA and neighbouring cities shared their stories on display at the Georgia Sherman Gallery, a space that has been donated to Film Stars for the last two years, while DJ Money Jane spun for the crowd. It was girl power all around!
