tiff 2018 coming soon

The cinematic world is coming to Toronto for the 43rd annual Toronto International Film Festival from September 6-16, 2018. Tiff is more of a big game hunting type of activity for many people, and the big game is Hollywood's top movie stars! Camping out in front of theatres waiting for a glimpse of someone famous, maybe even getting a selfie or an autograph with them. Watching the movies becomes secondary to the hunt.

King Street West will close down once again for a Festival Street party from Thursday, September 6 to Sunday, September 9. Beginning at 5am on September 6, King Street will be shut down from Spadina and University Avenues, along with John and Simcoe Streets between King and Wellington Streets.

"TIFF greatly enhances Toronto's economy and international reputation," said Councillor Michael Thompson (Ward 37 Scarborough Centre), Chair of the Economic Development Committee. "As the leading public film festival in the world, TIFF has helped establish Toronto as an international film capital while Festival Street now attracts more than 150,000 annual visitors, resulting in a significant increase in visitor spending in the Entertainment District."

"Festival Street is where everyone can access the excitement of TIFF and experience the city's largest celebration of film. Of course, this could not be possible without the support of Torontonians, the commuters and our partners at the City of Toronto," said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of TIFF. "The excitement of festival is something we want to share with the entire city with free screenings, musical performances and the impactful Share Her Journey Rally – just some of the highlights to expect – and we invite everyone to join us."
