The TIFF is not just about movies. There's a great ambiance in town during this event, the closer you get to the centre of the action, at King and John, the better.
On TIFF's website we can read a tag asking: Think the Festival is sold out? Think again! It leads to their Daily Discovery section for last minute suggestions. But even if you don't have a ticket for one of the movies lined-up for this festival, it is still fun to bask in the downtown energy at this time of the year.
I'd say this is the perfect time to try my Queen Street Smart Stroll (STROLL #4 in my walking guide Toronto Urban Strolls 1), which you are pretty sure to find in Ben McNally Books, one of Toronto's bookstore with the best selection and the best ceiling (you've got to see that ceiling!) at 366 Bay Street (a 15-min. walk from the TIFF Bell Lightbox).
