TICKETS, FESTIVAL PASSES & MEMBERSHIPS
Welcome to the 19th Vancouver Latin American Film Festival, our second-ever hybrid festival!
Between August 26 – September 5, you will be able to watch most of the films* online through the CineSend screening portal. Films are geo-blocked to Canada. Once you click PLAY on the film, you will have 72 hours to watch it.
*A couple of films will only be available in-person due to the filmmakers’ request.
We will also be hosting a selection of in-person events at The Cinematheque from Aug 27 – Sept 5. In compliance with current health protocols, the 155-seat Cinematheque theatre has been reduced to a maximum 78-person capacity. Seating will be on a first-come, first served basis. We strongly encourage you to buy your tickets in advance.
Before arriving, please check out The Cinematheque’s current Health & Safety protocols.

Live Stream Q&As
Keep an eye on the daily festival newsletter and on the film pages for the links to the live stream Q&As with guest directors (which will usually take place the following day after the Cinematheque screening, schedule TBA). Recordings will also be available on the VLAFF Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Sold Out Screenings at the Cinematheque
There may be a few last-minute “rush” tickets sold at the door of the theatre. However, as we are already operating at just 50% capacity, we recommend buying a ticket to the online screening instead.
