Only Rush tickets will be available at these venues.
There are three easy ways to get your tickets:

1. New this year! Print your tickets at home or save to your mobile phone

2. Pick up tickets or Programme Book in person at the Festival Box Office (Metro Centre, 225 King Street West), TIFF Members' Box Office (lower level Metro Centre), or Patrons Circle Box Office (TIFF Bell Lightbox, Steve & Rashmi Gupta Box Office, 350 King Street West). You'll need photo ID and your order confirmation number.

We encourage everyone to get their tickets in advance of the event by printing at home, downloading to mobile, or picking up tickets at the Festival Box Office.

When you arrive at the venue you will see a ticket-holder line and a Rush line. Because there is no assigned seating, people may choose to line up early to get their preferred seat. We recommend arriving at the venue 1 hour prior to your screening time.

Seating is guaranteed only until 15 minutes before the scheduled start of the screening. If late seating is disruptive, latecomers will not be admitted. Late seating is at the discretion of the venue staff.
That doesn't mean you can't get tickets! If the film you want is currently off-sale, continue to check back as inventory can fluctuate.

A minimal number of tickets are reserved to honour commitments to TIFF sponsors and partners. If these tickets are returned to TIFF, they will be made available for public sale. Available tickets are released each day at 7am during the Festival.

If you can't purchase tickets to the film you'd like to see, you can Rush.
All films at the Festival have been rated by the Ontario Film Review Board. Individual tickets for anyone 25 and under have special pricing. The TIFF Kids programme is designed for our youngest film fans, with family-rated screenings.
In order to ensure a fair distribution of tickets during the Festival, each account may only purchase a maximum of 4 tickets per screening.

For groups of 20 or more people, please contact groupsales@tiff.net or call 416 599 8433.
We do! Should you require companion or accessible seating, please contact the Box Office in advance at 416-599-8433.

Packages

We'll send you an email with an assigned start time to select your tickets on August 22. We go to great lengths to ensure a fair process to fulfill film requests. Our ticketing system randomly assigns windows to all Flex Pack buyers, with an earlier window for Contributor Members and up.

We strongly recommend that you have your ticket options ready before you log in at tiff.net during your assigned window, as you will have limited time to make your selections.

Flex Packs
Flex Pack purchasers will receive their start time before individual tickets go on sale on September 4 (August 30–September 2 for public, August 28 & 29 for Contributor Circle Members and up, according to level).

You can log in with your package code and select tickets anytime between your start time and the last day of the Festival.

Value Packs
Back-Half and Daytime Pack buyers will be assigned a start time on September 6. (September 5 at 9am for Contributor Members and up; September 5 at 12pm for Members 365.)

You can log in with your package code and select tickets anytime between your start time and the end of the Festival. If you have purchased multiple packs, each pack type will have its own login and ticket-selection start time.
The best ticket availability will be at your start time, but you can make ticket selections any time up until the end of the Festival.

If you are not available at your start time, a friend can select your tickets on your behalf. You will need to give them your login and package code for them to make your selections.
No, you do not have to make all of your ticket selections at one time. You can log in at any time and adjust your selections subject to availability. Tickets may only be exchanged up until 7pm the day before the screening.

If you only select a portion of your tickets and then check out, you will be given vouchers for the remaining tickets, which you can redeem at any time throughout the Festival.

The Rules

Seating is only guaranteed until 15 minutes before the scheduled start of the screening. If late seating is disruptive, latecomers will not be admitted. Late seating is at the discretion of the venue staff.

Our staff and volunteers are here to ensure the best possible Festival experience for all; TIFF Inc. will not tolerate mistreatment of any kind towards its staff or volunteers and will take measures accordingly. TIFF Inc. reserves the right to refuse admission and/or expel from the premises, without refund, any person whose presence or conduct is deemed objectionable.

Rush tickets are subject to availability and are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at the discretion of venue staff. Customers are limited to holding space in Rush lines for themselves and one other person. Please inform the Festival staff managing the Rush line if you are holding a place for another individual.

All electronic devices must be silenced and stowed away during public screenings. Bags are subject to inspection.

Please do not leave empty seats in the middle of the row; Rush seating is less disruptive to the audience if empty seats are available on the aisles. Seats cannot be saved. Due to venue fire codes, sitting in the aisles or standing at the back of the venue is not permitted.

All cinema and lobby areas will be cleared following each screening.

All films have been rated by the Ontario Film Review Board. Ticket-holders will be admitted to screenings in accordance with each film's classification. Please consult our film listing for ratings.

TIFF Inc. reserves the right to film or record its events and activities for its own purposes. All media requests to shoot onstage activity must be pre-approved by the TIFF Communications Department.
Tickets may not be resold. Tickets may not be used as prizes or contest giveaways, or for fundraising, promotional or advertising purposes, without express written consent from TIFF Inc. Such use or resale will invalidate tickets.

By using a ticket to enter a Festival venue, the ticket-holder agrees to being photographed, filmed or recorded in the event venue, and to the publication, reproduction, sales use, distribution and broadcast of all photographs, video or other recordings of the ticket-holder's voice or likeness without further notice or compensation in any publicity, advertisement or other publication carried out by, or on behalf of, TIFF Inc. in perpetuity in any manner and media whatsoever, including print, broadcast or digital.

If a Festival screening is cancelled or designated by our organization as a problematic presentation, tickets may be exchanged for another film or screening at TIFF's discretion and the following can be messaged:

1. Please visit your Festival Box Office or tiff.net to determine whether your ticket is eligible for an exchange.

2. If you printed your ticket at home or had it saved to your mobile device, your ticket will automatically be exchanged for a voucher in your account within 2 hours of the screening being deemed problematic (please note, if the screening was scheduled after 10pm, the voucher will appear in your account by 10am the following morning). You can exchange this voucher for any screening ticket of equal or lesser value, subject to availability. You can do this online or in person. In-person exchanges can be facilitated in advance at the Festival Box Office, on the day of at the Venue Box Office, or to rush a film if there is no inventory available in advance.

3. If you have a hard ticket to the disrupted screening, you can exchange this ticket for any screening of equal or lesser value, subject to availability. You can do this in person in advance at the Festival Box Office, on the day of at the Venue Box Office, or to rush a film if there is no inventory available in advance. Exchanges cannot be facilitated online or over the phone in this case.

4. All ticket sales are final and we do not offer refunds. Any concerns should be directed to the Festival Box Office or customerrelations@tiff.net.
