01:30pm - 06:00pm Alumni Off-site Adventure: Toronto Film Festival Film Viewing

Toronto International Film Festival

Your Camp Widow® team is excited to offer our alumni the opportunity attend the Toronto Film Festival!

The Toronto International Film Festival is the leading public film festival in the world, bringing the power of film to life each September, since 1976. The Festival has undergone countless changes since beginning as an upstart on the international circuit in 1976. Nevertheless, throughout its growth in both size and influence, the Festival has remained committed to its principal objectives: to lead the world in cultural and creative discovery through the moving image, and to showcase Canadian achievements in an international context. As the years show, the Festival continues to achieve these objectives by bringing together a remarkable diversity of local, national, and international films and personalities, to the delight of enthusiastic audiences, who have flocked to the Festival over the past 40 years.

Our Camp Widow® Alumni Excursion will leave from the Marriott Eaton Centre at 1:15pm. Festival theatres are within easy 15-20 minute walking distance from the Marriott. Films will be viewed between the hours of 2:00-6:00pm. Either lunch or a local pub stop will be arranged, based on the schedule of films which will be posted on the TIFF website on August 24th. If you’d like to participate in this alumni event, choose this workshop on your selection sheet, and details for the event will be shared as the plan evolves. We ask for your patience as the planning of this event is determined by the TIFF schedule and policies.

Bring your camera, soak in the TIFF energy, get the chance to view a film at one of the world’s most famous film festivals…and experience it all with your widowed community!

*There is an additional cost for this off-site adventure: ticket cost around $15, and the off-site meal cost. If you choose not to walk to the theatre, there will also be a charge for transportation to the theatre of your choice.
