Enjoy a really nice video of Ziyi reinterpreting Drake‘s “One Dance” lyrics with other famous actors for W Magazine.


Ziyi was quite busy yesterday at the Toronto Film Festival. First, she sat down for some interviews and then, she was photographed by Matt Barnes in the TIFF Photo Studio.


In the evening, the actress attended A Conversation With… At the moment, we only have some pictures of the interview, but we should be able to watch it in the next few days if we’re lucky.


Yesterday, Ziyi attended two events during the Toronto International Film Festival. The First one was at IT Lounge for the W Magazine NKPR IT House x Producers Ball Studio event. She was photographed with Pedro Almodovar‘s last film muses Rossy de Palma and Adriana Ugarte.


Secondly, she went to the Windsor Arms Hotel for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and InStyle’s Annual Celebration of the Toronto International Film Festival.


Yesterday, Ziyi attended “The Magnificent Seven” Premiere at Toronto International Film Festival. The actress was gorgeous.


It looks like Ziyi is going to stay a little longer in Toronto this September. The jury for the Platform competition was unveiled today and Ziyi is one of the three jurors.

The Toronto International Film Festival® today announced the jury for Platform, the programme that champions directors’ cinema from around the world. For the programme’s second year, its three-person international jury will be composed of legendary directors Brian De Palma and Mahamat-Saleh Haroun and acclaimed actor Zhang Ziyi. Together, they will award a prize of $25,000 to the best Platform selection, to be announced at the Festival Awards Ceremony on September 18.

Here’s what the director and CEO of TIFF, Piers Handling, had to say about it:

“We are honoured to have De Palma, Haroun, and Zhang on the Platform Jury for the programme’s second year. Each one of them brings a breadth of expertise and experience in visionary filmmaking, artistic direction, and unprecedented, bold narratives,” said Piers Handling, Director and CEO of TIFF. “We are thankful to our esteemed jury for making the time to be here this September to celebrate our renewed commitment to artistically ambitious filmmaking with Platform.”
