A message to our audiences regarding COVID-19


Following the Province of Ontario and the City of Toronto’s most recent guidelines for cinemas, TIFF Bell Lightbox remains closed for public film screenings. TIFF is a not-for-profit cultural organization with a mission to bring the transformative power of cinema to audiences; the continued closure of our building impacts our financial health and limits the connection we have with our audiences. We look forward to welcoming you back to our cinemas when it is safe and financially viable to do so. Until then, the health and safety of our entire community remains our number-one priority.

TIFF continues to work closely with the Province of Ontario, the City of Toronto, and public health officials on the reopening of TIFF Bell Lightbox to audiences. We will reassess reopening our cinemas in conjunction with provincial and city mandates as advised. TIFF will continue to monitor and communicate to our audiences any developments related to reopening, and will adhere to the guidelines and recommendations made by government health officials.
