Now in its 38th year, TIFF is a behemoth cultural institution, a one-stop shop for everything from star-studded red carpets to North American premieres for some of the most lauded names in world cinema. The most prestigious public film festival in the world, TIFF is also major Toronto institution, turning King Street into ground zero for filmgoers, members of the press, and celebrities alike.
Given its size and scope, TIFF can get a little tricky to navigate without a guide, which is where we come in. In the days to come we’ll be updating with all sorts of coverage, including reviews, survival tips, some festival history, and a tonne of photos. Stay tuned, and happy filmgoing!
