2021 Red Carpet Schedule

The TCFF Red Carpet is located on the second floor of the Showplace ICON Theatre at the top of the escalators to the left. We encourage everyone to take photos and selfies on the red carpet at any time. However, we do have reserved times for our filmmakers, sponsors and special guests. During the reserved times, our TCFF production, social media and photography teams will be working with the notable people attending the festival.
