Katie Coseni’s first experience at the Toronto International Film Festival was not typical.
Rather than chasing celebrities for autographs and crowding the edges of red carpets in hopes of catching a glimpse of movie stars, the second-year dramatic arts student found herself on the red carpet soaking up the limelight.
Coseni plays one of the lead roles in the film Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang, which premiered at this year’s festival on Sept. 10.
“It was mind-blowing,” Coseni says of the experience.
“The whole thing was incredible,” she says. “But one thing that really stood out for me was standing on stage with all the other girls and the director and producers, and just looking out at the Ryerson Theatre and it was packed.”
“I can still hear my family and friends who were there calling out my name and cheering and everything. It was a really weird experience.”
