The celebs were out in full force in Toronto Friday, celebrating the first full day and night of the Toronto International Film Festival.

One of the hottest places to be was South of Temperance, where Alliance Films and AOL Canada threw one of the most buzzed about events of TIFF in celebration of The Ides of March, which stars director George Clooney, Ryan Gosling and Philip Seymour Hoffman, among others.

The event took place inside the restaurant and under the stars in a special-tented patio decked out with white couches for lounging.
Guests sipped champagne and sushi, sliders, mini-BLTs and oysters were among the plentiful eats on offer.

Sarah Silverman (above), Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Evan Rachel Wood, Max Minghella, Marisa Tomei, Jeffrey Wright and Robin Wright were just some of the celebs who walked the red carpet, some chatting with dozens of members of the media covering the event.
