TIFF Bell Lightbox

It’s that time of year again where the art of film takes over the city of Toronto. This year TIFF returns with magnified influence, presenting a screening schedule of thought-provoking films to be celebrated.

Visiting Toronto for its annual International Film Festival makes for an excellent opportunity to try out some of the city’s most noteworthy new restaurants—after all, what pairs better with a movie than dinner?

Although Toronto’s fin-de-siècle rush to the top was largely focused on high finance and even higher skyscrapers, the city’s arts culture has seen notable growth in the past decade.

In true TIFF style, the red carpet is always on fire. Although festival galas may be the epitome of glamour, the smaller TIFF Bell Lightbox photo calls that precede press conferences—though slightly more corral-like—are equally hot.

Lights. Camera. Action. When the Toronto International Film Festival hits every September, red carpets roll across the city and set it all aquiver. When TIFF was founded back in 1976, it was called, charmingly, the Festival of Festivals, but today it really is, as it is the largest public film festival in the world.

TIFF Bell Lightbox, the headquarters for Toronto International Film Festival, is a bright five-storey glass structure overlooking Toronto’s entertainment district.
