Community Access Tickets

VIFF is committed to making films accessible to audiences. Through our Community Access Ticket program, we strive to remove barriers to inclusion. Each year, VIFF provides complimentary Community Access tickets to a variety of organizations that work with individuals who face barriers to attending film screenings at VIFF Centre or during the Festival.


Is there an organization you think would benefit from receiving Community Access tickets? Let us know by emailing [email protected]

Note: VIFF is unable to offer Community Access tickets to individuals directly. Individuals looking to experience the Festival are encouraged to connect with Community Access Ticket partners or speak to our Box Office for ticket rates.


Looking for ticket donations to use for your event or fundraiser? Please fill out the form on our Ticket Donation Requests page.
