September 17: 8am–12pm

Will there be a digital component this year?

A very limited number of films in Official Selection will be available to watch on digital.tiff.net across Canada. There will be no virtual Industry programming – we’re excited to welcome industry professionals back to Toronto for an unmissable, in-person Festival experience!

What is TIFF’s Code of Conduct?

A cornerstone of TIFF's belief system is that everyone has the right to respect, and to fair and equitable treatment from others. TIFF does not tolerate violence, mistreatment or harassment — verbal, physical, sexual, or otherwise — toward staff, Volunteers, delegates, audience members, or attendees at any of our festivals, conferences, or events. Our staff and Volunteers are committed to ensuring the best possible experience for all our attendees. If the safety of any of our guests is in question, we will take immediate steps to ensure the matter is addressed.

What are the payment options?

For a speedier process, we recommend paying by credit card or debit card. In some cases, you will need to authorize the transaction with your bank before sending payment. If your payment fails, do not create a new registration — our system has saved your progress and we can help you get back on track. Please contact registration@tiff.net for this and any other payment questions. TIFF prefers Visa.

What is the accreditation process?

Once you’ve purchased a pass, we review the details provided on your form. If you qualify for the pass that you’ve selected, we will process your payment and send a confirmation letter. If not, we will recommend a different way of exploring the Festival, like purchasing public tickets. Be sure to complete your registration form with as many details as possible. If we require more information, we will contact you.

Can passes be shared among colleagues?

Each delegate joining the Festival must be accredited in order to access screenings, the Industry Conference, and all other benefits. Passes cannot be shared.

I’ve registered but have not received a confirmation email.

Our accreditation process takes up to four business days. If you do not receive a confirmation after that time, email registration@tiff.net. Ensure that our email address is added to your contacts so important messages aren't blocked by Spam filters.

How can I access Delegate Resources and networking tools?

As a registered delegate, you have access to online resources, including our Delegates List, and networking tools. The 2022 Delegate Resources can be found here, and login information can be found in your accreditation confirmation email.

When will the Conference lineup be announced?

The schedule for the TIFF Industry Conference, taking place September 9–13, will be announced on August 10. Join some of the industry’s biggest names for provocative discussions and presentations.

I have a film in Official Selection. Do I still have to pay for my pass?

Films in Official Selection are eligible for one complimentary Film Rep Pass for the producer and one complimentary Film Rep Pass for the sales agent. These passes are not transferable and there is a maximum of three passes per sales agency. If you are part of the crew, please contact registration@tiff.net. If you are part of the cast, please contact your Film Coordinator.

Does TIFF have a market? Can I set up a stand/be an exhibitor?

TIFF has an “unofficial market” with a unique business model. Although, we do not offer traditional exhibitor opportunities we do invite National Agencies and their sales agents to spotlight their national cinema at our Industry Centre, located at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the form of a Stand. Agencies may showcase and promote films in selection, presentations, and talent from their region to maximize their visibility to the North American market.

Can I book a market screening?

Yes. Market screening slots are available throughout the Festival and open to films both in and out of Official Selection. Companies will have the opportunity to book in person market screening slots until August 24. For details, please contact privatescreenings@tiff.net.

Where can I find a list of industry professionals attending TIFF?

The Delegate List outlines all industry professionals attending the Festival. This is a useful resource only available for registered delegates to help them identify people they would like to meet. The Delegate List is available through our online Delegate Resources portal, and login information can be found in your accreditation confirmation email.

Do you have a discounted pass for students and scholars? How can I request one?

Students and scholars can access our Industry Conference at a discounted rate of $250 CAD + tax (regular rate: $490 + tax).

To access the student & scholar discount for the Conference Pass, please send the following details with your request to registration@tiff.net:

  • The name and email address of your program director or coordinator (if applicable)

Where can I access the Press & Industry schedule?

The P&I Schedule will be available online and in CSV (Excel) form by August 24. Our registered delegates will receive a link to this resource as soon as it becomes available.

Am I eligible for Industry accreditation?

Industry accreditation is intended for film professionals who have been active in the film industry over the past two years. Our resources are primarily geared toward those operating as producers, sales agents, distributors, exhibitors, talent agents, and writer-directors.

If you are a newcomer to the film industry (under two years of professional experience), a scholar, and/or a student, we recommend our Conference Pass.

I have accessibility needs. How can you help?

We are happy to accommodate passholders with accessibility needs. During TIFF 2022, our films will have closed captioning available; we are working towards providing closed captions for our talks and events as well.

If you require assistance please start by contacting registration@tiff.net. Members of the public should contact Customer Relations at customerrelations@tiff.net.

How can I support emerging filmmakers from underrepresented communities?

Help us continue to support emerging and diverse talent by donating a pass and providing them with access to the Festival’s Industry Conference, Press & Industry screenings, and networking tools. Since 2020, we’ve supported almost 600 creators in collaboration with community organizations and partners. Industry leaders like you can support this initiative here.

What are the current travel restrictions to come to Canada?

Currently, only fully vaccinated travellers can enter Canada and be exempt from quarantine and testing. Fully vaccinated in Canada means you have received at least two doses of an approved vaccine, with the second dose at least 14 calendar days prior to travel. Masks are still required on flights arriving into Canada. Click here for more information and to confirm your eligibility to enter Canada. If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to get in touch at registration@tiff.net.

Are there any child-care provisions for parents attending the Festival?

With the support of a generous donor, Kids & Company is offering child-care services for a discounted rate of $40 per day. Child care will be available at any of our downtown Toronto locations Monday–Friday, 7am–6pm. For the weekend of September 7–8, we will be opening our Front Street location specifically for TIFF families. Click here for more information and to request child care.

Our family spaces will also return to TIFF venues for this year’s Festival if you need a quiet spot away from the bustle with your child. Find our family spaces in multiple locations, including on the lower level of the Industry Centre, based at the Hyatt Regency Hotel; and at the home of the Industry Conference, the Glenn Gould Studio.
