Join The Coolest Film Society In Town!

Annual Membership Fee: $2

  • To see films at VIFF, you must a member of our registered nonprofit society

  • Your membership card is proof that you are a member, and you are required to present it at every screening that you attend (Or be prepared to buy another one.)

  • WHY? Under the laws of our province, only registered nonprofit 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.

  • We do ask for certain films to be classified for youth access and for our High School Program. In these cases, people under 18 may attend without becoming a member.

  • Please note: Due to BC Liquor Laws, for all screenings at the RIO Theatre you must be 19+.

  • Membership is by annual subscription and is limited to persons who are 18 years of age or over.

  • 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.

 We need to know who our members are!

  • Please fill in your membership information completely online or in person (and return it to any VIFF staff or volunteer).

  • Members are emailed VIFF and Vancity Theatre updates. You can opt out of receiving our emails at any time and VIFF will not share your membership information with anyone.
