2017 Ticket Trades

By popular request, I've created a page for comments for ticket trades. Only post here if you are willing to trade tickets, or sell for the value you paid for the ticket. Do not post here if you are simply looking for tickets (if someone hasn't posted that they've got the ticket you want for trade or sell, then no one here likely has it) or are trying to sell above face value; I may delete such comments (note that the range of prices for premium tickets is $52 to $59, and regular tickets is $28 to $35).

Double check any ticket before accepting it; I would not accept an under-25 or senior ticket unless you obviously fit that demographic, otherwise you risk not being admitted if TIFF chooses to check your ID on the way in the door.

A transfer through Ticketmaster is probably your safest bet, and then maybe TIFF-printed tickets; personally, I'd avoid accepting PDFs or print-at-home tickets.

Use the information here at your own risk; I do not know anyone who may be posting here, and any arrangements you make are strictly between you and the other person. If you have any issues, there is nothing I, nor the festival, nor Ticketmaster can do for you; you're on your own.

Note if you do post here, you should delete your comment once you have gotten rid of your ticket, so that you don't continue to get inquiries. If you have problems deleting your comment, post another letting me know, and I'll try to remove it when I get a chance.


I have two tickets for Hostiles at 8:30 PM on 9/16 at Ryerson Theatre. I would like to trade for two tickets to the following showings:

@Andrew Moore -- some of the times you have listed for the likes of Molly's Game and Current War are Press & Industry tickets, which you need a badge, a volunteer pass or sheer luck to get into. So don't count on being able to trade for those tickets.

Same word of warning to everyone else -- if it is listed as P&I on the TIFF site or on TIFFR, that screening is not ticketed or available to the public.

Looking for the following (see below). Please email me ( if you have any. I'm coming from out of town and TIFF completely f-cked me. I'm completely disheartened, because I've spent well over a thousand for hotel, and then the membership which did absolutely nothing (I only got half the movies on my list... Had to sacrifice and pick other choices - films I didn't want to see - just because I don't feel like watching only 1 movie per day...

3 tickets to Brad's Status (premiere)
2 tickets to Dunkirk (premiere)
1 ticket to The Breadwinner (premiere)
2 tickets to The Disaster Artist (premiere)

Again, my email is

I'd really appreciate it. I'm willing to buy any ticket available for trade as well (swap). I could Paypal, e-transfer, etc. I'm also willing to pay a little extra (but not much).

Thank you.

Hi, can someone explain to me how tickets for Dunkirk can go off-sale at 10:00 a.m. for TIFF insiders? I called the Bell lightbox folks and they said they don't have an explanation as to why there are no tickets on sale for tiff insiders. Do they not reserve block of tickets for each sale wave (i.e: TIFF members, TIFF insiders, and general public)? This is getting frustrating.

I asked about Dunkirk too this morning and was told members were able to buy yesterday so I guess they got them all :-/

I goofed and did not get "other side of hope" Friday 645 pm.. 2 tickets for a friend

will trade for 2 tickets of the following which are off sale

Mary Shelley sun sept 10 1:30pm 2 tickets or

Looking to trade my ticket to Unicorn Store- Friday the 15th at 6pm.

I am in search of Death of Stalin- Sunday the 17th at noon.


Is there actually an exchange button. We are only getting transfer/resale.

Maureen, the exchange function is very confusing. I did it by clicking the seat exchange button. It takes you to a scary screen that asks if you really want to exchange your seat, then it shows you a list of all screenings, i.e. seat exchange actually means two things - exchange your seats or exchange your screenings.

Text me at 647-909-6870

I have all of these films in physical ticket form (from the TIFF box office.) My work schedule and family schedule has changed, so these are the left over films that I am unable to go see.

Call Me By Your Name - Ryerson, 7th, 7:15pm (2 tickets.)

Papillon - Princess of Wales, 7th, 9:30pm (2 tickets)

Apostasy - Scotiabank 8th, 7:00pm (1 ticket)

The Upside - Roy Thompson Hall, 8th, 9:30 (2 tickets, unfortunately not right next to each other, but close to each other.)

I, Tonya - Roy Thompson Hall, 9th, 11:30am (2 tickets)

The Leisure Seeker - Roy Thompson Hall, 9th, 3:00pm (2 tickets)

Mary Shelley - Roy Thompson Hall, 9th, 6:30pm (2 tickets)

The Shape of Water - Elgin, 11th, 9:30pm (1 ticket or 2 tickets)

Battle of the Sexes - Ryerson, 16th, 5:00pm (1 ticket)

Vampire Clay - Ryerson, 16th, 11:59pm, (1 ticket)

Again, just text me at 647-909-6870 and we can figure out where to meet up. Probably at my work, which is downtown. Look forward to hearing from you!
