info outlineWe're open! We are replacing the front doors of the TIFF Bell Lightbox from Nov 6 - Dec 18, but you can still access the building near TIFF Shop.

digiPlaySpace 2017 is now over! We hope you and your class will join us next year.

digiPlaySpace is an award-winning interactive exhibition where students engage with new-media technologies, learning-centric games and hands-on activities. Featuring new works from internationally acclaimed children’s artists, digiPlaySpace supports diverse learning styles, and boosts new media literacy skills in support of the science, social studies, math, and language arts curricula.

School tours are one hour in length during the TIFF Kids International Film Festival but can be booked for two hours during February and March.

One complimentary supervisor ticket is provided for every 10 paid student tickets. Should the number of supervisor tickets required be in excess of this 1:10 ratio, the additional supervisor tickets will be charged at the student price.

digiPlaySpace is designed for Kindergarten to Grade 8 students; however, specialized tours are also available for high school groups that wish to know more about the technology involved in the creation of each installation.
