  • Skip questions 1-2 and start answering at Question #3.


  • Please answer all questions.
  • If there is more than one person applying from the same outlet, please note that each individual has to submit their own application form and each application must be associated with a unique email address.
  • You are not required to submit TIFF 2021 coverage with your 2022 application.
  • A pass photo will be required for completion of your application. All photos must be: under 1 MB in size, in colour, in jpg format. The photo should reflect your current appearance, and show only your head and shoulders. Please ensure your photo is readily available prior to beginning the form.

(no photo) Upload and Edit Pass Photo
We require a photo for your accreditation. You may upload it now by clicking on the link above. A new window will open where you can select the file, upload it, crop it to our standard dimensions and save it. We cannot process your pass without a digital photo. If you are having difficulty with your photo, please email us at media@tiff.net.

Photo Requirements: Photos must be: under 1 MB in size, in colour, in jpg format. The photo should reflect your current appearance (taken within the last 12 months) and show only your head and shoulders. You should be fully facing the camera and the sole person in the image. Photos with hats, sunglasses, or other accessories will not be accepted. This passport-like photo is used for security purposes and if you are not clearly identified, we will not be able to print your pass.

Safety and Respect at TIFF
A cornerstone of TIFF’s belief system is that everyone has the right to respect, as well as fair and equitable treatment from others. TIFF does not tolerate violence, mistreatment, or harassment - verbal, physical, sexual or otherwise - towards staff, volunteers, delegates, audience members, or attendees at any of our festivals, conferences, or events. Our staff and volunteers are committed to ensuring the best possible experience for all of our attendees. If the safety of our guests is in question, we will take immediate steps to ensure the matter is addressed.
