Rush Policy

RUSH TICKETS: When a screening “goes rush” it does not mean it’s sold out. In past years, 95% of people in the Rush Line got into the screenings. Arrive early. Rush tickets will be released 15 minutes before the screenings begin at the TIFF Bell Lightbox Box Office based on availability. For Opening Night Gala Screening at Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema and other offsite events, rush tickets will be released at respective venues. Rush ticket sales are cash only
