6-TICKET PACK – New for 2018: Order and redeem online!!
General: $65
Discount: $55 (seniors/students/arts workers)

6-ticket packs are available online only and are valid for any regularly priced screening, subject to availability. Ticket packs must be redeemed online for specific films in advance of the screenings you wish to see. It’s even easier than it sounds… just purchase a ticket pack online and then log in again to your Elevent account to select the screenings you’d like to attend. You do not have to select all six tickets at the same time.

Earlybird: $115 (available from August 1 – 15 only)
Regular: $140 (from August 16 onwards)

Purchase online:
Festival Passes ordered online will be available for pick-up at the Will Call table on Opening Night or at The Cinematheque (August 24 onwards).

The Festival Pass includes access for one to all VLAFF screenings. When possible, passholders will be admitted into the cinema ahead of the ticket-holder lineup. The pass does not include access to receptions or parties.

Passholders must arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the screening time to claim an entrance ticket from the Box Office. A Festival Pass does not guarantee seating to sold-out shows if the passholder arrives beyond the cut-off time. Passholders must carry a valid 2018 VLAFF membership card.

(Purchase individual tickets in person by cash or credit card. This year Festival Passes and 6-Ticket Packs are only available for purchase online.)
