TIFF packages go on sale starting today

The Toronto International Film Festival has begun selling its ticket packages starting today to those with TIFF memberships. This is one of the many perks of getting a membership with TIFF, which also gives members access to discounts and free tickets to events at TIFF Bell Lightbox throughout the year.

New this year, they are introducing four new packages: the 6 Premium Ticket Pack, customizable Flex Packs, the Premium Sampler, and Contemporary World Cinema selected by TIFF programmers.

Next week on July 3, sales for ticket packages will open for those with Visa credit cards. Visa is the preferred credit card of TIFF and a festival sponsor. For the general public, all ticket packages will be available on July 9.

Usually, the first packages to sell out are the 10-Ticket pack and the student/senior packages.

There are still many deals to be had. The Back Half Pack gives you 5 screenings for $50, while the 20-Film Daytime Pack is $190 or $9.50 a ticket. If you wait to purchase single tickets, the regular price for adults is $19.69 before surcharges. The premium tickets are just under twice the regular price at $38.27 each.

The 2012 Festival Box Office will be located at Metro Centre (225 King St. West) and opens August 21.

The 37th Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 6 to 16, 2012.
