For youth (24 and under) and seniors (65+), we offer free tickets for weekday screenings that begin before 6pm. Tickets cannot be reserved in advance and must be picked up in person at the Inside Out Box Office at TIFF Bell Lightbox (350 King St. West) on the day of the screening, limit 1 ticket per person, limited quantities available.
TIFF Bell Lightbox and most Inside Out party and reception venues are wheelchair accessible. In addition, all cinemas at TIFF Bell Lightbox have accessible seating.
Any person with a disability who is accompanied by a support person will be allowed to enter Festival events and screenings with his or her support person. Fees will not be charged for one support person for admission to Inside Out events but they are required to acquire a ticket from the box office (subject to availability).
Inside Out welcomes people with disabilities and their service animals. Service animals are allowed at our venues in the areas that are open to the public.
We encourage our patrons to refrain from wearing perfume, cologne and other scented products when visiting the theatres; however, we cannot guarantee a scent-free environment. Should you have an allergy to scented products and require a change in your seating location, please consult with our venue staff and if possible, we will relocate you to comparable seating.
Phonic Ear Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) are available at TIFF Bell Lightbox. The devices, compatible with any Festival screening, will be made available to patrons requesting them through the TIFF Box Office.
All foreign-language films are screened in their original language with English subtitles.
If you would like to request for a screening to be accompanied with ASL (American Sign Language) interpretation, please email Jenna Dufton, Programming Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*These programs will feature films with open captions as well as subtitles.
