alumni UBC Breakfast Series in Toronto – Featuring Catherine Lutes, CSC, BA’03

Catherine Lutes

We always hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And that successful people never eat alone. Keeping these two ideas in mind, alumni UBC offers an intimate breakfast series in Toronto. Get to know fellow UBC alumni in the GTA over a meal, and make connections that will benefit your career, business, and life. Each breakfast features a UBC alum who’s been making a mark in their profession, and will be on hand to share their story with you.

The next breakfast in this series will be TIFF-themed, featuring cinematographer Catherine Lutes, CSC, BA’03, who will share highlights from her 12+ years working in cinematography. Catherine has two feature films premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival this year – Firecrackers (dir. Patricia Rozema) and Mouthpiece (dir. Jasmin Mozaffari) – so this breakfast is the perfect way to celebrate TIFF 2018!
