TIFF Tickets on Sale Friday, September 4, 2009

Just a reminder that general ticket sales for TIFF begin at 7:00 AM on Friday, September 4, 2009. If you haven't bought a ticket package so far, then Friday will be your first chance to buy tickets.

Tickets can be purchased from:

Festival Box Office at Nathan Phillips Square

  • September 3 to 18, 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM
  • September 19, 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Festival Box Office at Roy Thomson Hall

  • September 4 to 18, 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM
  • September 19, 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Online (

By phone (416-968-FILM, or toll-free at 1-877-968-FILM)

During the festival, tickets can be purchased from Venue Box Offices, but that won't start until September 10.

Commenters can give their own takes, but pretty much any of the above options will be extremely busy on Thursday morning. People in line usually complain that people online have bought up all the tickets to popular films, but people online usually complain about problems with the website box office going down.

Note additional tickets may be released for films the day of the screening or throughout the festival, so if you can't get a ticket for something right away, keep checking back on other days. I'll post more tips in a subsequent posting.

Individual tickets will cost more than your average movie, and galas will cost more than that. I can't remember off the top of my head the exact price last year, but I think it was somewhere between $12 and $20 per ticket (please post a comment if you can remember the exact price you paid last year for individual tickets).
