The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is a publicly-attended film festival held each September in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The International Film Festival (TIFF) begins the Thursday night after Labour Day (the first Monday in September, in Canada) and lasts for ten days. Between 300-400 films are screened at approximately 23 screens in downtown Toronto (International) Film Festival venues. Annual attendance at TIFF exceeds 300,000 from public and industry audiences. The TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL is centred around the Yorkville, Toronto neighbourhood, a part of town with several luxury hotels and movie theatres and best restaurants. Although the TORONTO Festival has begun to give more attention to mainstream Hollywood films, it still maintains its independent roots. TIFF, known originally as "The Festival of Festivals", was founded in 1976 at the Windsor Arms Hotel.
