Triple check your ticket, making sure you know the location of the screening and the time. Make sure you bring your ticket to the screening. This can be as a print out or downloaded onto your phone.

3. Don’t arrive late

Do not arrive late! You can be refused entry to a screening if you arrive over ten minutes late. This is to prevent disruption to other visitors.

4. Check for schedule changes

Sometimes the film schedule can change due to unforeseen circumstances. Stay on top of the latest news and check the Toronto Film Festival schedule regularly.

5. Arrive super early

Festival organizers recommend you arrive one hour early to start queuing to get into the screening. Only a few showings have assigned seatings, so it’s first come, first serve.

6. It’s not too late to get tickets

If you missed the ticket sale opening on September 4th, don’t worry! There’s still a chance you can get tickets on the day. ‘Rush tickets’ go on sale a few minutes before a screening starts. Start queuing as early as possible to get your hands on them.
