Toronto lets out its frustration over TIFF ticket sales

Individual tickets for the Toronto International Film Festival went on sale this morning. This stress-inducing process began at 9 a.m. today when I started pressing refresh on the TIFF website before realizing I could grab everything on Ticketmaster.

Unlike in previous years, TIFF is now using Ticketmaster as its ticketing distributor. This, however, was a little bit unclear. So I, like many others, started off on the TIFF website before making the switch over to this third-party retailer.

And surprisingly, Ticketmaster proved useful because the TIFF website seemed crashed just after 9 a.m. And while many high-profile films sold out quickly, it was relatively (the key word is relative) easy to gain access to galas and other big world premieres.

Though not everyone was pleased with their experience, if you're going by social media that is. Here's how sleepy Torontonians took out their frustrations this morning.

Did you get all the TIFF tickets you wanted? Let us know in the comments.
