There has been a lot of excitement around the Festival these past couple of weeks in anticipation of the Christopher Plummer gala on September 26 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto. We’re thrilled to be giving a lifetime achievement award to Mr. Plummer for his remarkable acting career, and to celebrate the amazing performances he’s given in Stratford. We reached out to you, our loyal facebook, twitter and blog followers, to ask you to send us a one-minute vlog telling us why you should be our correspondent for this exclusive event. After we picked three vlogger finalists, we handed it over to you to decide who should spend the evening reporting on the likes of Jian Ghomeshi, Gordon Pinsent and some of the Festival’s hottest stars.
Meet Chris and Jacki, our vlog champion!
Here is their winning vlog.
Chris and Jacki will be creating five vlogs during the event. Do you have something that you’d like to see covered or asked? Leave a suggestion for them here!
