Organizers with the Toronto International Film Festival are still planning to go ahead with the annual movie marathon in mid September. But given current restrictions on public gatherings amid the COVID-19 pandemic, they’re also exploring new ways to screen films. TIFF some public and press screenings would be shown digitally, if strict gathering rules are still in place.
In a statement, TIFF says the closure of the Toronto cinemas and offices at TIFF Bell Lightbox has been extended to July 1 to help mitigate the spread of the disease. Festival officials will be in touch with ticket holders for the impacted events.
