TIFF ticket packages now on sale to the public

Previously, the Toronto International Film Festival began selling ticket packages for the 2011 festival to TIFF members and Visa card holders. Starting today, they are selling all of their ticket packages to everyone. 

If you are in any way serious about attending the festival, you would be well advised to buy your ticket package ASAP. Many of the most popular packages such as the 10-Ticket Flex Pack or the student/senior packages will sell out very quickly. Otherwise, you could be stuck paying full price for each ticket ($19.69 + fees).

The best deal is still the daytime pass, good for movies that start at 5pm or earlier. Now it is for 20 tickets rather than 25, but at $170 for 20 it works out to $8.50 per ticket (less if you're a student or senior). Over the eleven days, that averages out to 2 screenings a day, which is a very comfortable pace.

Other bargain packages include the Wavelengths pack of 5 screenings for $45. The Wavelengths program is for shorter avant-garde and experimental works and was singled out by the New York Times' Manohla Dargis for its excellence. The new Back Half pack gives you five screenings in the second half of the festival for $50.

Single tickets go on sale from August 25-29 to TIFF members. They go on sale to the general public on September 3.

The 36th Toronto International Film Festival runs at various venues from September 8 to 18.
