COVID-19 policies

TIFF has announced a number of protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“Masks are required at all TIFF Festival venues,” TIFF revealed in a statement. “Audience members and visitors will not be permitted entry into the venue without a mask. Where an audience member or visitor is unable to wear a mask due to health reasons, TIFF will provide them with a face shield as an alternative. If the audience member or visitor does not wish to wear a face shield, they will be denied entry into the venue and will be given a refund for their ticket.”

As well, TIFF plans to open theatres 1 hour before the start of screenings to help reduce line-ups and allow for distanced entry into the venue.

The 46th Toronto International Film Festival runs September 9 to 18, 2021. The GATE will have ongoing coverage of the film festival at thegate.ca/tiff
