Celeb spotting at restos
Amid the seething mass of humanity that is TIFF, who has time to hit up unfamiliar new restaurants? Stargazers can’t go wrong by checking out high-end restaurants with an international presence, such as Momofuku or Café Boulud.
If you want tickets to the latest TIFF blockbuster, you’re gonna have a rough time. Maybe try something a little more low-key and wait a day or two until demand has died down before buying tickets. You might be pleasantly surprised with what you see.
Give rush lines a shot
Rush lines for non-ticket holders open up 10 minutes before the start of each TIFF screening. It’s a bit of a gamble, but hey, exciting.
