TIFF COVID-19 Protocols


TIFF Covid-19 Protocols

Updated as of March 14, 2022

In response to the Province of Ontario’s updated timeline on removing the masking mandate, as of March 21, 2022, all staff and visitors to TIFF Bell Lightbox must continue to wear a mask for the duration of their time inside the building. Masks are mandatory for all staff, visitors, and guests at TIFF Bell Lightbox unless you are actively eating or drinking in your seat in the cinema.

Theatres will continue to be sold to 100% capacity. Concessions will be available and the Bell Blue Room Members’ Lounge will be open.

TIFF continues to augment our air handling system with a supply of fresh air. Filters are changed regularly, and HEPA filters are in cinema spaces. The ability to introduce a constant supply of fresh air is an important feature to eliminate airborne pathogens in an enclosed space should they be present.

If you have any concerns or questions that can be addressed by TIFF staff, please contact TIFF Customer Relations at customerrelations@tiff.net.
