TIFF Tickets

TIFF Tickets

Tickets to TIFF can still be had. Even though the most buzzed about films have already sold out, there are still plenty of second, daytime and less-hyped screenings that have not yet gone to Rush. On the official TIFF site they're posting a daily audio slideshow highlighting films that still have tickets available. The box offices as well as the online order form also have a current status of which screenings still have seats to be filled.

Meanwhile, on Craigslist, a healthy after-market is surfacing for tickets to the most sought-after films. The second George Clooney flick, Up in the Air (see review here), which screens at the Ryerson tonight at 6pm is seeing bids of more than $100 a ticket - a 500% premium over the box office price. It's a reminder that TIFF isn't just about seeing good films from around the world, it's big (or at least a healthy) business for pro or one-off scalpers.

In fact, it's enough to make me seriously consider whether I should be selling my pair of tickets above to subsidize my entire 10 ticket package, if not a nice trip somewhere.
