Since its start in 1975, Toronto International Film Festival has grown to become one of world’s best, considered by many to be second only to Cannes. Roughly 300 films from more than 60 countries are scheduled over approximately 10 days of early morning screenings, black-tie galas, and midnight schlockfests. The September festival has spun out into satellite programs, including the TIFF Children’s Film Festival and TIFF Cinematheque (a foreign film repertory theater). Since 2010, the festival has been housed at the contemporary-styled, TIFF Bell Lightbox, a five-story film center in the heart of the downtown theater and restaurant district.

Insider Tip:

Voted on by festival goers, the People's Choice award is considered a bellwether of Oscar success. Past films who've won big at both include The King's Speech, Slumdog Millionaire, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
