The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation is recreating a smaller-scale version of the Toronto International Film Festival in Windsor, Campbellford, and North Bay.

The events will bring the magic of this iconic film festival to these three communities, creating an authentic movie premiere experience complete with a red carpet, great opportunities for selfies and pictures, delicious free movie snacks along with many more surprises in store.

“We’re so pleased to be launching OLG’s TIFF on Tour to bring the magic of this great film festival to communities outside Toronto – which wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to experience all the excitement of TIFF,” says Alexandra Aguzzi, OLG’s Senior Vice President, Brand, Communications and Sustainability. “OLG’s partnership with TIFF is a great reflection of our shared belief in supporting local arts & culture, and Ontario communities as a whole.”

Each TIFF on Tour event will be screening North of Normal, a film by Toronto Director Carly Stone, which will be premiering at this year’s TIFF. North of Normal is based on the 2014 memoir of the same name by Cea Sunrise Person. The film centres on Cea Sunrise Person’s unconventional childhood living in the Canadian wilderness without the creature comforts of modern life such as running water and electricity.

“Our mission at TIFF is to transform the way people see the world through film. Through this partnership with OLG we will bring that mission to life in a powerful way,” said Elisabeth Burks, VP, Partnerships, TIFF. 

“TIFF On Tour recognizes the power of entertainment, arts & culture to spark connections and conversations within our communities. We’re incredibly proud to partner with OLG to bring meaningful experiences and the magic of TIFF to these three cities.”

The premiere events will be free and open to the public (attendees must be 18+ years old) and will be held on September 28 at the Capitol Theatre and Arts Centre. To order your free ticket and learn more about OLG’s TIFF On Tour, visit olgtiffontour.com.
