Spotted at TIFF 2018: Matthew McConaughey and Timothée Chalamet hug it out and Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson hit the party circuit

The first weekend of TIFF was a hectic one, with tons of fancy parties, star-studded premiers and press conferences. Here are some of our favourite celeb sightings from this past weekend:

At the Artists for Peace and Justice gala on Saturday evening, Susan Sarandon took on a new role as a server:

About Last Night: Susan Sarandon enjoys a little role reversal for a good cause, and worked the room serving guests dinner at the @artistsforpeace gala fundraiser. A whopping 1.4 million was raised, which will go towards supporting access to education in Haiti, an ongoing project, that first launched at @tiff_net 10 years ago. Congrats to co-chairs @natashankpr & @suzanneboyd_! Oh to dine with this powerhouse ☝️. The impression Susan left on us when we first saw Thelma & Louise back in 1991, well, it was one of the top 10 films that impacted our youth, and opened our eyes to a whole lot. We are lifetime loyal fans, and can't wait to check out The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, which is directed by Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan, and also stars Natalie Portman, Thandie Newton, Kathy Bates, Jacob Tremblay, Kit Harrington. Wow – what a cast. #TIFF18 #TIFF ?: @ryanemberley

Look who was goofing around this aft at @sohohousetoronto. Jude Law, Natalie Portman, and director Brady Corbet whooped it up under the moose to celebrate North American premiere of Vox Lux. @greygoosecanada passed around some fancy cinema-inspired cocktails paired with everyone's favorite: grilled cheese sammies. (Have you ever eaten a grilled cheese in a floor-length Dior gown? Get on it, woman.) Cannot wait to see this film…anyone going? Looks AMAZING. Portman never disappoints! We fell in love with her back in 1994, when she wowed the world as little Mathilda in Leon: The Professional. LOVED her in Black Swan, and can't wait to see her rock out as a pop star dealing with a shit ton of heavy life stuff. ?: @stefaniekeenan / Getty Images for @greygoosecanada ??✨?? #TIFF18 #VoxLux #GreyGoose #SohoHouse #Toronto #NataliePortman #Dior

Maggie Gyllenhaal stopped by Mongrel House:

Maggie at #MongrelHouse. We fell for her hard many years ago when Secretary premiered at TIFF, and have been closely following her career since. She’s here for film #TheKindergartenTeacher, which is on our top picks list, and here’s what our reviewer Sarah Sahagian has to say about it, “Brought to life by an arresting performance from Gyllenhaal, Lisa’s behaviour is consistent with that of countless university-educated, middle-class white people, so-called intellectuals who mistake their taste for good taste. Ultimately, The Kindergarten Teacher is a bold film that refutes classist notions of high and low culture by creating a villain whose bad behaviour is directly inspired by “good taste.” Maggie, thank you for your work, and also for using your powerful platform to speak up, most recently about the separation of migrant children at US border. #TIFF18 #maggiegyllenhaal #TIFF @mongrelmedia ?: @daniloursini
