Is there a limit to the number of tickets I can purchase?

In order to ensure a fair distribution of tickets during the Festival, each visitor may only purchase a maximum of two tickets per account, per event. This limit exists for Members and non-Members.

All in-cinema screenings have assigned seating, and you may only purchase single seats or a pair. There will be one or two seats between each person or pair. We are unable to split paired seats. If there are no more single seats available, you must purchase the pair.

What is the difference between Premium and Regular?

Premium screenings refer to the first in-cinema screenings of any film that is part of the Gala or Special Presentations programmes. Regular screenings refer to films in all other programmes. The second or third screening of a Gala or Special Presentation film is also a Regular screening. Drive-in and open-air screenings are all Regular screenings. All digital screenings of films in the Gala or Special Presentations programmes are Premium.

What if there are no tickets available?

When a screening no longer has available tickets, it is referred to as “off-sale.” Inventory may fluctuate, so we recommend regularly checking TIFF Account Manager and digital TIFF Bell Lightbox or visiting tiff.net/available (after August 24).

Can I make a group booking?

Group sales are not available for TIFF 2021. If you are interested in purchasing tickets for the purpose of corporate hosting, reach out to sponsorship@tiff.net.

What payment methods do you accept?

TIFF prefers Visa, but we accept all major credit cards. Debit is also accepted for in-person purchases at TIFF Bell Lightbox. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we encourage you to limit your cash purchases.
