Buying Tickets
When do tickets go on sale?
Ticket packages go on sale to the public on June 21 at 10am (May 24 for Contributors Circle Members and up, May 31 for Members 365 (and up), and June 14 for Visa cardholders).

Individual tickets go on sale to the public on September 4 at 10am (August 24 for Patrons Circle Members, September 2 for all other Member levels, and September 3 to TIFF Insiders).
How do I get the best price on tickets?
The earlier you buy, the better! Ticket packages are always your best bet to save. A 6-ticket flex pack works out to $25/ticket compared to an individual ticket that starts at $28. The larger the flex pack, the bigger the savings (50+ packs are under $21 per ticket). For even better savings, check out the Weekday Daytime or Back-Half pack for up to 41% off the price on an individual ticket.

If you are buying individual tickets, your best savings come when buying earlier. Evening and weekend regular screenings start at $28 and premium screenings start at $52. New this year, we have introduced special pricing for weekday daytime screenings starting at $18 for adults and $10 for anyone 25 and under. Remember to buy early to get the best price, as prices can increase by $2-$7 from the base price as demand for a film goes up.

Remember, TIFF Members save even more on packages during their pre-sale and receive the first pick of individual tickets. Become a Member today for just $99.
How do I pick up my tickets or Programme Book once I’ve purchased?
There are three easy ways to get your tickets:
  1. Print your tickets at home or save to your mobile phone from a link in your confirmation email or by logging into your account at tiff.net.
  2. Pick up tickets or Programme Book in person (remember your photo ID and order confirmation number):
    • August 22–September 3: TIFF Bell Lightbox, Steve & Rashmi Gupta Box Office (350 King Street West)
    • September 4–17: Festival Box Office or Members Box Office
  3. You can also pick up tickets from the venue box office on the day of the screening. All ticket orders for Roy Thomson Hall, the Princess of Wales Theatre, the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre must be picked up in advance at the Festival Box Office.
How can I avoid lineups?
Lining up is part of the festival experience. Lineups outside of venues are usually made up of ticket holders waiting to get into screenings.

Because assigned seating is only available for screenings at Roy Thomson Hall and Visa Screening Room at the Princess of Wales Theatre, people choose to line up early at general admission venues to get their preferred seat. We recommend showing up one hour prior to your screening (30 minutes for Roy Thomson Hall and Princess of Wales Theatre). Audiences are let in no more than 30 minutes before the screening start time.

People may also be waiting in the Rush line if they have not purchased tickets in advance and there are no tickets available for purchase (off-sale). Purchasing in advance is advisable.
What time should I arrive at the venue to pick up my tickets and get a seat?
We encourage everyone to get their tickets in advance of the event by printing at home, downloading to mobile, or picking up at the Festival Box Office.

We recommend showing up one hour prior to your screening (30 minutes for Roy Thomson Hall and Princess of Wales Theatre, where there is assigned seating).
Seating is only guaranteed 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the screening. Latecomers will be admitted at the discretion of the venue staff.
What if the film I want to see is off-sale?
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, so be sure to check back.

If you can't purchase tickets to the film you'd like to see, you can always rush.

In the event that advance tickets are no longer available to a Gala screening at Roy Thomson Hall, we will release a limited number of standby tickets that can be purchased in advance. The Standby line will be admitted before the Rush line to get first dibs on unclaimed seats.
Can children attend the festival?
All films at the Festival have been rated by the Ontario Film Review Board. Look for films tagged as TIFF Kids for family-friendly films suitable for our youngest film fans, and TIFF Next Wave for titles of interest to audiences under 25, as selected by our youth-driven TIFF Next Wave Committee. Individual daytime tickets for anyone 25 and under have special pricing.
Is there a limit to the number of tickets I can purchase? What if I'm attending with a large group?
In order to ensure a fair distribution of tickets during the Festival, each account may only purchase a maximum of four tickets per screening. For groups of 20 or more people, please contact groupsales@tiff.net or call 416-599-8433.
Do you have a companion seating policy?
We do! Should you require companion or accessible seating, please contact the Box Office in advance at 416-599-8433.
How can I get a copy of the Festival Programme Book?
The Festival Programme Book and all merchandise are available at TIFF Shop beginning August 22 and the Festival Box Office from September 4. You may pre-order the Programme Book with your ticket packages starting on June 21 (May 24 for Contributors Circle Members and up, May 31 for Members 365, and June 14 for Visa cardholders). The Programme Book is $47 ($122 with delivery), which includes taxes and fees.
How do I become a TIFF Member?
TIFF Membership is open to everyone! Starting at $99, TIFF Members enjoy the very best in film programming, exhibitions, special events and festivals, and are part our efforts for a more engaged, connected, and informed world through the power of film. TIFF Members save with early bird pricing on ticket packages during their exclusive pre-sale and — new this year — all Members get to pick their package films before non-Members and get an individual ticket pre-sale on September 2! Learn more about TIFF Membership and how to join at tiff.net/join.
How can I find out about any changes to my screening?
Check tiff.net/changes after August 22 for information about any moved, added or changed screenings.
Payment & Exchanges
Will fees be added to my order?
Not when you buy Festival tickets or packages on tiff.net or at a TIFF box office. All service fees and taxes are included in the prices you see above. If you purchase individual tickets on ticketmaster.ca (instead of logging on through tiff.net), you will be charged a $1 fee per transaction.
What is your refund and exchange policy?
All sales are final; refunds or cancellations are not permitted. Tickets are valid only for the event for which they are issued, and cannot be replaced if lost or stolen.

You can exchange tickets beginning September 5 at 7am for free online in your TIFF Account. Exchange tickets in person at the Festival Box Office or over the phone, up until two hours prior to the start of your screening, for $2.50 per ticket. Please note there are no exchanges for Buzz List package or Closing Night tickets.
What payment methods do you accept?
TIFF prefers Visa, but we accept all major credit cards. Debit and cash are accepted for in-person purchases. Rush ticket purchases are cash-only at each venue.
Packages
What's the process for package film selection?
We'll send you an email with an assigned start-time to select your tickets on August 21. 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 TIFF Members.

If you have purchased multiple packs, you will receive one login and ticket selection start-time.

You can log in with your package code and select tickets anytime between your start time and 10pm on August 31. If you do not select your films within this time period, you can log back in between September 5 at 7am and the end of the Festival to select your films

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.
What if I'm not available for the start time I am assigned?
The best ticket availability will be at your start time, but you can make ticket selections any time until 10pm on August 31, or between September 5 and 17.

If you are not available to your make your selections at your designated 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.
Do I have to make all my ticket selections at one time? Can I go back into the system later?
You will need to make all of your selections in one session. The session will timeout after one hour and any tickets remaining in your shopping cart at that time will be released.

If you have only selected a few of your available tickets upon checkout, you will need to select vouchers for the remaining tickets in your package, which you can redeem beginning September 5.

Learn the Lingo

Premium: These events offer a premium in-person experience, and can include red-carpet screenings, World or North American premieres, and/or audience Q&As.
Rush: A "Rush" lineup will be indicated at each venue for all non-ticket-holders looking for last-minute tickets. Tickets will be sold to the Rush line approximately 10 minutes before the start of the screening based on availability. There is a limit of one ticket per person. Please arrive as soon as possible to join the Rush line. Customers are limited to holding space in the Rush line for themselves and one other person. Please inform venue staff if you are holding a spot for another person. Rush tickets are $20 for regular screenings and $40 for premium screenings (cash only).
Free: Indicates a free ticketed event. Free tickets can be reserved online starting September 4 (September 2 for TIFF Members) for Dunkirk, North of Superior, and films in the TIFF Cinematheque programme, while quantities last. Free tickets for the September 17 screenings of the Grolsch People's Choice Award winner and Toronto Platform Prize winner will be issued at the venue two hours prior to the screening.
Off Sale: "Off-sale" means there is currently no inventory available for that event. An event may alternate several times between on-sale and off-sale before the event date as sales and internal partner commitments fluctuate. Your best option for off-sale events is to check again at tiff.net, by phone, or at the Festival Box Office as tickets are released at 7am daily.
Gala Standby ticket:Available only for Gala screenings at Roy Thomson Hall. In the event that advance tickets are no longer available, we will release a limited number of standby tickets. The difference between standby and rush tickets are that standby tickets can be purchased in advance, and rush tickets are purchased 10 minutes prior to a screening pending availability. The Standby line will be admitted before the Rush line to get first dibs on unclaimed seats.
Vouchers: Complimentary ticket vouchers are not tickets, and must be exchanged for a ticket at the Venue or your Festival Box Office. Complimentary ticket vouchers can be exchanged from September 5 onwards, subject to availability.
Pre-Sale:
  • Member pre-sale: An advanced window when TIFF Members can purchase packages or tickets before the public. Become a Member today!
  • Visa pre-sale: An advanced window when Visa cardholders can purchase packages before the public.
  • Insiders Pre-sale: An advanced window when TIFF Insiders can purchase individual tickets before the public (but after TIFF Members). Become an insider by signing up for The Weekly e-newsletter, and you will be sent an access code in advance of the September 3 insiders pre-sale.

The Rules

Venue Policies
Seating is only guaranteed until 15 minutes prior to 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 a maximum of two individuals, including themselves. Please inform the Festival staff managing the Rush line if you are holding a place for another individual.

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.

Film runtimes, as listed in the Official Film Schedule and the Festival Programme Book, represent the best available information at press time. Runtimes are approximate and don't include time for intros or Q&As. Screenings and schedules are subject to change without notice. Check the Official Film Schedule for the most up-to-date information.

All Festival venues are wheelchair accessible. If you require accessible or companion seating, or other accessibility services, please contact the Festival Box Office in advance by calling 416-599-8433 or 1-888-599-8433 (toll free) so that we can ensure your needs are met.

The safety and security of all our visitors and guests is a priority for TIFF. Security measures are in place at all TIFF events and bags are subject to inspection. Hazardous, inappropriate, offensive and suspicious items including aerosols and alcohol will not be permitted.

All electronic devices must be silenced and stowed away during public screenings.

Cameras and recording devices are strictly prohibited during screenings. Screenings will be monitored for unauthorized recording. It is illegal to make a copy of a film or part of a film without permission of the copyright owner. Toronto International Film Festival Inc. (TIFF Inc.) reserves the right to undertake anti-piracy measures and eject any person who is recording or photographing without authorization from TIFF Inc., to confiscate pirated material, and to report any unauthorized recording to law enforcement, which may subject that person to criminal and civil liability.

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.

Screenings and events are subject to change without notice. Please check tiff.net/changes regularly to see if there have been any changes or cancellations.
Ticket Conditions of Sale
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 internet.

By using a ticket to attend Festival screenings and events, the user waives and releases TIFF Inc. from all claims he/she may have against TIFF Inc. for any loss, damage, injury, liability or expense he/she may suffer, arising from his/her presence at the event venue due to any reason whatsoever, including those arising from personal injury, property loss/damage or death.
Cancelled or Disrupted Screenings
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. Please visit your Festival Box Office or tiff.net to determine whether your ticket is eligible for an exchange.

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, over the phone, 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.

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.

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

About The Festival

Starting out in 1976 as a collection of films from other festivals — a "festival of festivals" — the Toronto International Film Festival has become one of the most beloved cinematic events in the world, universally regarded as an ideal platform for filmmakers to launch their careers and to premiere their new work. The Festival has been described as "the most important film festival in the world — the largest, the most influential, the most inclusive." *

How to Festival

Let's navigate the People's Festival together.

Put the Festival in Your Pocket With the Official TIFF App

Last year, we launched the TIFF App with featured films and events, original content, your personal Festival Planner, and built-in voting for the Grolsch People's Choice Award. This year, we added the ability to manage your tickets directly in the app and you can use the App to gain entry to screenings and events. Learn more right here.

Having trouble finding a film to vote or buy tickets? Our huge film list might be taking a few minutes to download. If you still can't find it, please quit your app and reopen to refresh the film list.

   

TIFFBOT

Feeling a little overwhelmed by the hundreds of films in the TIFF lineup? Tiffbot is here to help.

Created in collaboration with TWG, it's a Facebook Messenger chatbot — a computer software program that uses artificial intelligence to simulate human conversation — that provides movie recommendations. Just log in to Messenger and ask for ideas on what to watch. Like a good friend who's spent way too much time learning about TIFF programming, Tiffbot will give you great tips on what to see.

International Jury Awards

TORONTO PLATFORM PRIZE PRESENTED BY AIR FRANCE

For its third year of the Platform programme of director’s cinema, the Festival welcomed an international jury comprised of Chen Kaige, Malgorzata Szumowska, and Wim Wenders.

Winner: Warwick Thornton’s Sweet Country
Jury remarks: “This is a spiritual epic taking place in 1929 in Australia’s Northern Territory. It is a great saga of human fate, and its themes of race and struggle for survival are handled in such a simple, rich, unpretentious and touching way, that it became for us a deeply emotional metaphor for our common fight for dignity.”

Sweet Country

Speaking about their deliberations, the Jury statement added: “We saw twelve films from all over the world that took us into very different universes of the soul and to extremely different places on our planet. We were thankful to be able to see these films and we very much appreciated that actually exactly half of them were made by women. TIFF is leading the way, we feel. As we only had one award to give, we had to be quite radical. We also limited ourselves to only one special mention, even if other films might have imposed themselves for best acting, writing or directing.”

Awarding a special mention to Clio Barnard’s Dark River, the Jury said: “This film deeply rooted in the Yorkshire countryside convinced us, as its characters and actors, its photography, its story and its sense of place were all so utterly believable and controlled, that we were totally taken by it.”

 

THE PRIZES OF THE INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF FILM CRITICS (FIPRESCI PRIZES)
Winner - Discovery: Sadaf Foroughi’s Ava
Winner - Special Presentations: Manuel Martín Cuenca’s The Motive (El Autor)

Ava

The Motive (El Autor)

The Festival welcomed an international FIPRESCI jury composed of jury president Jonathan Rosenbaum (USA), Robert Daudelin (Canada), Martin Horyna (Czech Republic), Ivonete Pinto (Brazil), Marietta Steinhart (Austria), and Jim Slotek (Canada).

 

NETPAC AWARD
Winner: Huang Hsin-Yao’s The Great Buddha+
Jury remarks: “The NETPAC Jury awards The Great Buddha+ for depicting the interface between the haves and have-nots, with black humour and style, innovating with noir in representing the social reality of Taiwan today.”

The Great Buddha+

Jury members include jury chairperson Rashmi Doraiswamy (India), Jian Hao (China), and Savine Wong (Canada).

 

Short Film Jury Awards

The short film awards below were selected by a jury comprised of Marit van den Elshout, Johnny Ma, and Chloé Zhao.

Pre-Drink

The Burden (Min Börda)

IWC SHORT CUTS AWARD FOR BEST CANADIAN SHORT FILM
Winner: Marc-Antoine Lemire’s Pre-Drink
Jury remarks: “A monumental yet intimate portrayal of a woman in transition.“

IWC SHORT CUTS AWARD FOR BEST SHORT FILM
Winner: Niki Lindroth von Bahr’s The Burden (Min Börda)
Jury remarks: “Whimsical but tragic, imaginative and just plain weird, this is exactly what one can expect from a Scandinavian musical with fish in bath robes singing out their existentialist crisis. This is a film that stands out in this program and any film program it will ever be part of.”

Honourable mentions to Matthew Rankin’s The Tesla World Light (Tesla: Lumière Mondiale) and Qiu Yang’s Xiao Cheng Er Yue (A Gentle Night).

 

Canadian Film Jury Awards

The Canadian awards below were selected by a jury comprised of Mark Adams, Min Sook Lee, and Ella Cooper.

Luk' Luk'l

Les Affamés

CITY OF TORONTO AWARD FOR BEST CANADIAN FIRST FEATURE FILM
Winner: Wayne Wapeemukwa’s Luk' Luk'l
Jury remarks: “The award goes to a striking debut film that disrupts borders - of form and content and suggests new cinematic territories. This beautifully realized film offers a unique Canadian perspective, made with real compassion, insight and remarkable characters from Vancouver’s East Side.”

Honourable mention to Sadaf Foroughi’s Ava.

CANADA GOOSE AWARD FOR BEST CANADIAN FEATURE FILM
Winner: Robin Aubert’s Les Affamés.
Jury remarks: “A hybrid art-house film that proved to be something of a revelation. Wonderfully scripted and perfectly cast, this film managed the rare feat of featuring genuinely interesting and well-rounded characters; surprising dramatic and comedic moments with well thought-out multi-generational female roles (who were totally badass) while also dealing with poignant and contemporary issues, set against a striking rural backdrop and hundreds of ‘ravenous’ zombies.”

Honourable mention to Simon Lavoie’s The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches (La petite fille qui aimait trop les allumettes).
