5 simple rules to Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF)

For TIFF newbies, here’s how to do lineups, red carpets and premieres like a pro


Go Early

Go the first weekend of the festival. It’s the most star-studded and when the parties are best.

Don’t Despair

“Rush” isn’t a bad word. A film may appear to be sold out, but there is a chance to get a ticket through the rush line.

Check Twitter

Watch the Twittersphere for festival-going tips from hotel concierges like @FourSeasons and @FSToronto, or get highlights from TIFF Artistic Director Cameron Bailey @cameron_tiff.
