Please note most TIFF events have General Admission seating (represented on the ticket as GA or GEN). Seat rows and numbers on tickets indicate to Front of House staff which section to direct you to, including reserved sections if applicable.
When you arrive at the venue you will see a ticket-holder line and a Rush line. Because there is no assigned seating, people may choose to line up early to get their preferred seat. We recommend arriving at the venue one hour prior to your screening time.
Seating is only guaranteed until 15 minutes before the scheduled start of the screening. Late seating is at the discretion of the venue staff. If late seating is disruptive, latecomers will not be admitted.
That doesn't mean you can't get tickets! If the film you want is currently off-sale, continue to check back as inventory can fluctuate.
A minimal number of tickets are reserved to honour commitments to TIFF sponsors and partners. If these tickets are returned to TIFF, they will be made available for public sale. Available tickets are released each day at 7am during the Festival.
If you can't purchase tickets to the film you'd like to see, you can Rush.
