Passes

YOUR PASS TO THE WORLD OF CINEMA

Let the marathon begin! VIFF pass-holders have access to almost all of  VIFF as a generous allotment of seats are reserved for passholders at every VIFF screening. While a pass (with the exception of the two "Platinum" options) does not guarantee seating, passes offer flexibility, freedom to move between screenings, and potentially the greatest savings of all.
