The Unofficial History of Midnight Madness


Toronto International Film Festival midnight madness

I am a Midnight Madness obsessive and have bought a ten ticket pass every year since 2008 (100$ as a student back in the day! R.I.P pass). My favorite movie going memories are the ones I made waiting in line for hours with friends (rain or shine), reacting as one with an audience when a film works like gangbusters, and the long discussions we’d have afterwards at 2 AM over pizza at the Big Slice around the corner of the Ryerson Cinema (R.I.P Big Slice. We loved you so.)

Below, you’ll find a list of all the films that played Midnight Madness since its inception in 1988.
