TIFF 2012: Shit Girls Say

Although I never actually had time to go and see any of the fantastic movies at TIFF, I did however get to attend a Mavericks session at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Through Twitter (oh how I love social media), I won an invite to the TIFF 12 Tweet Up on September 14th - an event for (hyper)active tweeters to meet and interact, face to face, rather than from behind a computer screen; and to mingle with the creators of the hilarious Twitter account and viral YouTube video series Shit Girls Say. We all got to hang out with Graydon Sheppard and Kyle Humphrey in the TIFF green room before their session in the theatre with George Stroumboulopoulos. BTW, did you know they're from Toronto? Another reason why Canada is awesome.

If you haven't seen this, you've been under a rock. Here you go:

Check out some pics from the Tweet-Up:

Cookies and candy galore...

And then the discussion began!

They talked about everything from where the idea came from and what went into the making of the videos to how they handled the instant online stardom and even the release of their own book.

 Their book was launched this past Tuesday September 18 - get your copy now! We got to see some of the photos during the session and they are oh-so cute.

And since I know you want to watch the rest of the Shit Girls Say videos, here you go.

And their NEWEST addition, episode 4, which they showed us during the TIFF session:
Kyle and Graydon were hilarious during the Q&A and I'm glad I got to take part in the event! Thanks to TIFF for the invite!
