This summer, our series of free screenings in David Pecaut Square takes you behind the curtain of the entertainment world, revealing the trials, tribulations and triumphs of life in "The Biz."
You can catch more outdoor screenings this summer at TIFF Pop-up Movie Nights at assorted locations throughout Toronto, including Dentonia Park, Evergreen Brickworks and Regent Park. Dates and film selections to be announced soon!
If a TIFF in the Park screening is cancelled or rained out with more than 50% of the film remaining we will reschedule the film to Friday, August 22, 2014. In the event of inclement weather, please check http://tiff.net/series/tiff-in-the-park for updates.
