Rosie Levine is a Canadian journalist who has been covering the Toronto social scene since the 1980’s. After graduating from the University of Toronto, she began her career in 1980 as the Director of Guest Relations at the Festival of Festivals, now known as the Toronto International Film Festival. In 1983 she crossed into the world of journalism, writing professionally for Limelight, then later for Close Up, Graffiti, and Network. In these interviews, she would invite writer Perry Stern, so as to add another voice and produce a more conversational feeling piece. This method of interviewing continued for three years, after which Levine began to work freelance for Maclean’s and Flare. In 1988, she became a columnist for Metropolis.
Levine is most well known for her work with NOW Magazine, which she was a part of from 1989-2000. Here, she made a name for herself as the Toronto social columnist. She also covered a variety of other interests including fashion and comedy.
Levine has always been very aware of anti-war movements. Since 2004, she has been taking celebrity photos flashing the signature two-finger peace sign. In 2016, she published these photos in the video Peace Project.
