Toronto International Film Festival

September 4 – 14, 2014

Toronto, Canada

Not only can you rub elbows with today’s hottest celebrities at the Toronto Inter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val (TIFF), but you also get exclusive showings of those Oscar-winning movies before everyone else. That’s right—TIFF premieres films like The King’s Speech and Slumdog Millionaire, providing attendees with unprecedented viewing access. And did we mention the actors and directors themselves are usually there to answer your questions after the screening? With over 300 films from 60 countries, TIFF is the largest public film festival in the world offering a behind-the-scenes look at the film industry, complete with Hollywood galas and red carpet premieres. This year marks the return of the Asian Film Summit, highlighting TIFF’s commitment to bridging the gap between Asian cinema and the West. Expect riveting panel discussions, in-depth working sessions and a gala banquet.

Admission: Single tickets range from $19-$40. Packages also available. Visit tiff.net
