VIFF $2 Festival Memberships

You must be age 18 or older and a member of our registered non-profit society to attend MOST films at VIFF. Please note the Rio Theatre is 19+ ONLY.

WHY? Under the laws of our province, only registered non-profit film societies such as VIFF are allowed to screen films that have not been classified by Consumer Protection BC.  Only members are permitted to be present at the place where a non-classified film is being exhibited.

THEREFORE: To attend a Greater Vancouver International Film Festival Society film screening (which may not have been classified by Consumer Protection BC), you must be a Greater Vancouver International Film Festival Society member. 

Important Information:

•   You must show your membership card at every screening. If you have forgotten your membership card, you may be asked to purchase another membership in order to be allowed into the theatre.
•   VIFF is responsible for operating in compliance with the Motion Picture Act and Consumer Protection BC. 
•   By joining the society, you are entitled to attend the next Annual General Meeting. 
•   Under 18?: VIFF does seek classification for a selection of films for youth (under 18 years old) to attend. In these cases, people under 18 may attend without becoming a member. Classified films will be listed under Films for Youth. If you're a high school teacher or student, also check out our High School Outreach Program.
