About TIFF Gives

TIFF is a charitable cultural organization with a mission to transform the way people see the world through film. TIFF Gives is our way of helping other charities, by providing them with complimentary Dual Memberships for auctions, raffles, or donations. We believe that having the opportunity to bring your friends and family to TIFF Bell Lightbox is a great way to be a part of the film and arts community in Toronto.

Dual Memberships are valued at $160 and include four ticket vouchers to our regular, year-round programming.*

There is a select number of Dual Memberships available, with a limit of one Membership per charitable organization per calendar year. You must be a registered charity to receive a TIFF Gives contribution.

Please note: You must submit a request through this form for consideration. Priority will be given to arts-related organizations. Due to the volume of requests we receive, only successful applicants will be contacted. If your TIFF Gives request is approved, you will hear back within three weeks of your application.
