A representative for TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) said in a statement later this week that the TIFF would resume its in-person festivities as early as this fall following two consecutive year of virtual events.
According to a representative of TIFF, the TIFF’s 47th annual film festival would more likely to take place between September 8th and 18th, while Toronto will deliver 11 days of “the best that the international film community has to offer, while spotlighting and championing the Canadian film industry and its filmmaking talent,” added the TIFF official.
Latest move from TIFF came forth as there has been a mass-scale inoculation campaign since early-March last year, while a mandatory booster shot for the people who would more likely to require hospitalization added to further protection.
Nonetheless, in Canada, still many people are preferring natural immunity instead of a vaccine. Though, a mass-scale outbreak of Omicron across the Northern America, a more-infectious but less-dangerous variant of the pandemic which would unlikely to require hospitalization without a higher viral load or underlying critical clinical disorders, appeared to have stemmed immunity against most variants of the pandemic pathogen across Northern American and Europe.
However, parts of Australia and Southeast Asian nations are still battling sporadic outbreaks, while movie personnel hailing from the continents are becoming affected too.
TIFF to arrange in-person film festival this September
Last year, the Toronto International Film Festival has delivered little as there has been stiffer pandemic restrictions across the city.
Back in the 2020s, the festival had been moved directly into a virtual format. Followed by the announcement, TIFF Chief Executive Cameron Baily said in an interview, “Over the last two years, we’ve learned how to bring digital elements to our festival in new and innovative ways.
We are proud of this work. If needed, we are ready to do so again, however, our main focus in 2022 is bringing audiences back in-person to Toronto. ”
