ticket packages for the festival are being made available first to Visa credit card holders. Visa is the only credit card accepted by TIFF, and is one of their official sponsors. Ticket packages will be made available to everyone else starting on Monday July 12. Single tickets will not go on sale until September 3. The festival dates are September 9-19.
If you know you intend to see a number of films during the festival, buying a ticket package is the most cost-effective approach. Starting last year, larger ticket packages were no longer eligible to be shared, with the only exception being the 10-ticket package. But this year, there are more options available. There are a wide variety of groupings and price ranges to suit everyone's needs. You have to move quickly, though. Some of them will sell out very quickly. The most popular ones will be gone in the next few weeks, and most of the rest will disappear sometime in August.
