Toronto International Film Festival – TIFF

September 10, 2020

Various Venues, Toronto


Events Description

Starting out in 1976 as a collection of films from other festivals — a “festival of festivals” — the Toronto International Film Festival has become one of the most beloved cinematic events in the world, universally regarded as an ideal platform for filmmakers to launch their careers and to premiere their new work. The Festival has been described as “the most important film festival in the world — the largest, the most influential, the most inclusive.”

TIFF 2020 is a film festival for the moment: fresh, diverse, unique stories from around the world, brought together at venues in and around the city, and a sophisticated, secure digital platform, now called Bell Digital Cinema, for home viewing. At the drive-ins and open-air cinema, audiences can expect the same high-quality viewing experience as in past years.

In keeping with precautionary measures provided by both the City of Toronto and Public Health Ontario there will be reduced capacity at the TIFF Bell Lightbox cinemas and Isabel
Bader Theatre. Bell Digital Cinema, drive-ins, and open-air cinema will also have a limit on capacity.

In order to secure as much seating as possible for audiences across all venues during this exceptional year, previous years’ capacity was taken into account and spread out among the digital platform, drive-ins, open-air cinema, and indoor cinemas.

The Bell Digital Cinema for general public digital screenings is geolocked to Canada and will house most of the films selected for TIFF 2020. Festival-goers will be able to watch Festival films at home on their television screens by using Chromecast, or a newly developed digital TIFF app, which was created for the Festival and will be available in the Apple App Store on September 9.
