Our 21st century-world has increasingly become a blurry mix of virtual and real, physical and digital. We spend much of our time interacting with technology through screens, sensors, data, social networks, games, and more. How can we build an empowered relationship with these technologies, tools, and networks to strengthen our ability to connect with each other? How are we able to explore new aspects of who we are, the way in which we tell our stories, and how we play and learn? This exhibit aims to empower audiences to see everyday technologies in a new light, full of artistic expression and possibilities.
Use your creativity and curiosity to dance, jump, click, touch, and draw! Experience the creative potential of machine learning, motion capture, and coding, and see what you can discover in the process. Join us for a mixed reality adventure where the lines between the virtual and real disappear.

How much does a ticket to digiPlaySpace cost, and do I have to pay if I am a TIFF Member?
TIFF Members get in free! Tickets for non-Members are $11 on weekdays and $13 on weekends and holidays.
Can I use my ticket for any time and/or date?
No. The ticket you have purchased is only valid for the date and time printed on it.
Do I enter digiPlaySpace at the time printed on my ticket?
The time printed on your ticket is the earliest time that we will be able to let you into the space. Guests are admitted on a first-come, first-served basis according to the entry time printed on their ticket and the capacity of the space. Due to capacity limits, exact admission time may be delayed.
How long will it take to get into digiPlaySpace once I have bought a ticket?
We strive to have all guests enter digiPlaySpace as close as possible to the time printed on their ticket; however, due to the operating capacity of the space, time of entry can vary and is not guaranteed.
Can I bring a large group of people to digiPlaySpace?
If you wish to book a large group of people (10 or more guests), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org beforehand. In order to maintain an enjoyable and safe capacity inside the space, we cannot guarantee that all members of the group will enter digiPlaySpace at the same time. However, they will be granted access within the same half-hour timeframe.
What if my whole group needs to enter digiPlaySpace at the same time?
We understand that some groups may only be able to attend digiPlaySpace if the entire group can be admitted to the space at the same time. If this is the case for your group, we recommend booking at 10am or 10:30am.
If I bring a large group of people to digiPlaySpace, can you provide space for my group to have lunch or a snack?
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide additional space or seating to groups visiting digiPlaySpace.
How long can I stay at digiPlaySpace?
We recommend allotting 90 minutes to make the most of your digiPlaySpace experience. We ask that guests are mindful of this recommendation during peak periods (e.g., weekends and March Break), as we want to ensure the best possible experience for all of our guests.
If I am already in digiPlaySpace can I stay past the closing time?
The posted closing time of digiPlaySpace indicates when the space will be closed for the evening. The last entry of the day is 60 minutes prior to closing.
Can I leave my kids at digiPlaySpace?
All children must be constantly supervised by an adult parent or guardian.
Can I re-enter digiPlaySpace later in the day if I leave for lunch, etc.?
With the exception of trips to the washroom, once you have left digiPlaySpace, you cannot re-enter.
Can I bring large belongings like coats, bags, and strollers into digiPlaySpace?
No. Since we want to give as much room to as many guests as possible and provide a safe place to play, we ask that large coats, bags, strollers, etc. be checked at our coat check. (Cost for adult non-Members is $2 per coat; coat check is free for TIFF Members. Strollers, bags, and children's coats can be checked for free.)
Can I eat in digiPlaySpace?
There is no food or drink permitted in the space.
