Day 1 at TIFF we had a captive, energetic audience and were treated to some great insights. Plenty of bums in seats and lots of laptops & devices taking notes and sharing through social!

The @500px photo walk was an adventure that explored and emphasized the amazing imagery that can be captured right here in Toronto. What would social media be without great images?
