Patrons Circle

Where a love of film meets a love of TIFF: experience the very best we have to offer year-round and during the Festival, and enjoy exclusive access to events, earlier pre-sales, and dedicated service — all while supporting TIFF with an important donation. Patrons Circle levels include access for you and either a secondary card holder or a guest, and include a charitable tax receipt for the maximum allowable amount.

To ensure the best level of concierge servicing, a capacity limit is applied to Leadership Memberships. This means that they cannot be purchased online before the Festival. If you need to renew, or would like to inquire about our Leadership Membership, please email us.
