If you have questions on how to get tickets for the festival, we recommend visiting TIFFtalk. For years, Richard has put together the definitive guide on the process:
  • Part 1 – what type of tickets to buy
  • Part 2 – Advance Order procedure
  • Part 3 – selecting which films to see
  • Part 4 – buy tickets during the festival


Many people will be organizing their film schedule this weekend, and there are a few websites that aim to ease the process. The official has a Login | Register at the bottom of their website; it allows you to build a film list. Our friends at tiffReviews have a one click addition to your Google Calendar or iCal (Apple). Last year tiffr appeared, but it's late again getting reliable data. We've tried all three — but every year ended up on the dining room table with Post-it notes and highlighters... ;-)


Finally, a friend we've met in ticket lines many times, Larry has put together a nice series of practical tips on attending the festival.
