TIFF Higher Learning is a free ongoing programme that provides Canadian post-secondary students and faculty a forum to examine the role of film, television, video, new media and gaming from a wide range of cultural, social, historical, political and technological approaches and disciplines.

Tickets for university and college students

Advance bookings: Only faculty members and administrators can reserve blocks of tickets for their classes.

Same-day ticket availability: The remaining tickets for each event will be made available on a first-come, first-served, basis. Tickets are limited to one per person and are available at TIFF Bell Lightbox’s Steve & Rashmi Gupta Box Office (350 King Street West), one hour before the event's start time. Students must show valid college or university ID cards for admittance.

Please be on time. It is best to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to a Higher Learning event so you can have time to obtain your tickets and find seats.

Tickets for Faculty members and administrators

Advance bookings: Only faculty members and administrators can reserve blocks of tickets for their classes. We are extending this offer to all universities and colleges, and are therefore trying to limit the number of reserved tickets to 30 per professor. We fill the orders on a first-come, first-served, basis so if you think you would be interested in bringing a class, it would be best to send your requests as soon as possible to hlf@tiff.net. Please remember to include the name of the specific event in the subject heading.

Same-day ticket availability: The remaining tickets for each event will be made available on a first-come, first- served basis. Tickets are limited to one per person and are available one hour before the event's start time at TIFF Bell Lightbox’s Steve & Rashmi Gupta Box Office (350 King Street West).  Faculty and administrators must show college or university faculty/staff ID for admittance.
