Known to locals as “TIFF”, one of the world’s most prestigious film festivals begins in Toronto on September 6 and runs until September 16, 2012. Many Hollywood studios have premiered their films here, later going on to win Oscars, the most recent one being “The King’s Speech”.
I try to catch five or six films each year, always those that I don’t think will ever appear in mainstream cinema, or those by first-time or unknown directors.
Single tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at the box office or online until September 16, 2012. Regular adult tickets cost $19.69 CDN and those for Red Carpet Premieres are $38.27 CDN. Because there is no assigned seating for any of the screenings, people may choose to line up early to get good seats.
