How To Do TIFF When You’re Broke

So you’ve spent all your money on food and/or tuition and/or Kesha concert tickets and now you have no money to spend at TIFF. But all hope is not lost—even if you can’t afford the movie tickets, the party admissions, and the special event passes, there’s still tons of stuff you can do with a wallet full of nothing but a couple of loonies and a whole lot of hopes and dreams.


Catch A Screening Of Dunkirk

Christopher Nolan’s war drama has been getting rave reviews since it came out in July, and on September 10 you can see what all the fuss is about without spending any money—it’s a win-win! Nolan himself will participate in a Q&A session after the screening, plus it takes place at the very aesthetically pleasing Cinesphere.


Rewatch Mean Girls

Remind yourself how good it is. Honestly, it’s a modern classic. The hit 2004 teen comedy will be screened on the Slaight Music Stage on September 10 at 9 p.m. Luckily it’s not playing on a Wednesday, so feel free to wear whatever colour you want.


Embrace Your Inner Cinephile

If you fancy yourself a movie buff, why not catch a screening of a recently restored film? 1987’s I’ve Heard the Mermaids Singing, 1995’s Rude, and 1971’s North of Superior are just a few movies you can check out for free if you didn’t see them when they first came out…over 20 years ago.


Snap Some Pictures

Whether it’s 9 a.m. in the morning or midnight, there’s always something Instagram-worthy going on when TIFF is in town. Pose in front of the infamous TIFF sign, see who can take the weirdest or most impressive selfie, or nudge your way up next to the red carpet and try to take a pic of the top of George Clooney’s head. You can also sit back and let other people take the photos in the Beforeifly Virtual Reality Photo Booth or the Sterling Red Carpet Magazine Cover Photo Booth.


Hang Out On Festival Street

You’ve got your free food, you’ve got your ping pong, and you’ve got your entertainment. You’ve even got the Bell VR Experience, which gives TIFF goers the chance to enter the new and exciting world of virtual reality. You’ll look silly in that giant VR headset, but it’ll be worth it.
