An earlier version of this article incorrectly described a behavior of crows exposed to crow corpses. Live crows only touch, attack and attempt intercourse with crow corpses, they do not scavenge them. (Actual NYT correction)

I got the same message when I clicked the link. But when you put the promo code into the left sidebar and search it will bring up a 6 month individual membership which costs $0.

Currently have a dual membership set to expire at the end of November so I wonder how this will work... and if they will send me a new card.

TIFF membership is awesome - especially having access to the members lounge :)

At the very least, you will have access to the members lounge! It's a nice space. Free refreshments. Do make sure to check their hours. I went with a friend once who was a TIFF member at the time.

Assuming this lounge is only open during TIFF in Sept/19 so would need to renew after 6 months ... Or is this members lounge open year round? Thanks!

TIFF Bell Lightbox (located at King Street West/John Street) refers to the cinema/space used year-round for film and events. I know a lot of people hear TIFF and just think of the 10 day festival, but the Lightbox is IMO a great destination to be visited on a regular basis throughout the year!

As OP mentioned in his post, with this membership you get discounts on movie tickets, concessions, the gift store, the restaurants/shops (https://www.tiff.net/eat-and-stay/?tab=savings) but my favourite bonus is the members lounge access (see info/hours here - https://www.tiff.net/visit/#BBR). The lounge has coffee/tea and other snacks (usually nacho chips, cookies, apples, biscotti, ladyfingers etc) - you can also purchase alcohol and other drinks. It's a really great space to hang out before/after seeing a film or just to meet other film buffs and it's open year round (although it's actually closed to lower-level members during TIFF festival).

There are other perks to being a member - special events (they hosted a viewing of the World Cup final), film talks, behind the scene tours, and free access to exhibits (digiplayspace!).

TIFF is a charity, so I hope there isn't an insane influx of RFDers just going for the free snacks, but I know TIFF hasn't been doing so well and hopefully this helps get the word out on what TIFF has to offer year-round :)

p.s. Members get a special members card, so I'm guessing they will be mailing them out? Otherwise you won't be able to get the discounts in-person or get into the lounge.
