Toronto Film Festival Will Require Attendees to be Vaccinated



The Toronto International Film Festival will require attendees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or proof of a negative test within two days of entering any venue, the event’s organizers announced on Monday.

“Festival staff, audience members and visitors entering #TIFF21 venues from September 9–18 will be required to show either proof they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or proof that they have tested negative for COVID-19 within 48 hours prior to entering any TIFF venue,” the organization wrote on Twitter.

A scaled-down version of the Toronto International Film Festival is taking place from Sept. 9-18. Last year’s festival took place virtually, with some drive-in screenings, as a concession to the COVID-19 pandemic. The long-running festival is returning in 2021 with in-person screenings, as well as digital and outdoor premieres to accommodate the movie lovers who aren’t able to travel to Canada.

TIFF will host premieres for the musical adaptation of “Dear Evan Hansen,” Kenneth Branagh’s coming-of-age story “Belfast,” Edgar Wright psychological thriller “Last Night in Soho,” Céline Sciamma’s “Petite Maman,” HBO’s Alanis Morissette documentary “Jagged” and many more. The 46th annual film festival will also hold a special presentation of “Dune,” Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel that’s set to have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
