It’s almost TIFF season here in Toronto and after two years of hybrid programming, this year’s festival will be fully in-person. TIFF is welcoming movie-goers, stars, and industry members back to the city this September, including its vibrant Festival Street.

Festival Street will occupy a large stretch of King Street outside of the TIFF Bell Lightbox theatre, from Peter Street to University Avenue.

The family-friendly street festival will be celebrating all things film and will feature “live performances, partner activations, and outdoor screenings,” according to a press release from TIFF.

Festival Street will be open during the first few days of the festival, from opening day on September 8 to September 11.

The 11-day festival is known as the world’s largest public film festival and is attended by Hollywood’s top talent every year.

The festival schedule is packed full of international and Canadian film premieres, press and industry screenings, special events, and of course, red carpets.

The city also becomes a hot spot for celeb-spotting during TIFF, and there are several restaurants and bars around the city where you can enjoy special festival-themed menus and maybe see a star if you’re lucky.

You can take a peek at the schedule here and start planning your festival outings. Even if you don’t plan to see any movies, you can enjoy the TIFF season buzz on King Street for free.
