TIFF begins – From drive-ins to digital screenings

126

 The Toronto International Film Festival kicked off on Thursday with a variety of physical and digital film screenings available despite a fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2020, the festival offered a limited number of physical, socially distanced screenings as the world grappled with the deadly and highly-contagious coronavirus.

This year, however, the festival will provide more in-person screenings, as theatres reopened across Ontario this summer with capacity limits of 50 per cent, up to 1,000 people. Along with in-person screenings, driveins, outdoor screenings and digital screenings are returning to the festival this year.

For a second year in a row, TIFF will offer a digital platform with an abundance of digital screenings for the public to rent and view online. Most of these screenings can be rented from the comfort of your home for $19 to $26 for four hours.

A full list of in-person and digital screenings along with ticket information can be found on TIFF’s website
