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.

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.
