Sep 7, 2017 - Sep 17, 2017
The Toronto International Film Festival (aka TIFF) has become one of the most beloved cinematic events in the world, universally regarded as an ideal platform for filmmakers to launch their careers and to premiere their new work.
It’s a great way to see movies that you probably would never get a chance to see and has become as important for Hollywood as Cannes & Sundance are (and the ticket prices reflect that!)
September 7 to 10: King Street West between Peter Street and University Avenue will be temporarily converted
into a pedestrian promenade.
There will be FREE live concerts along with movies at the Slaight Music Stage:
