Festival Ticket Information

Box Office

Tickets can be purchased up to 60 minutes prior to showtime either online at viff.org or at any VIFF venue box office. Within 60 minutes of showtime, tickets are only available at hte screening venue, subject to availability. During VIFF, all of our theatres serve as box offices for every event at the festival. They open 30 minutes prior to the first show of the day at that venue. See venue locations here

Purchase Online & Print at home or be Smart about it.
When you purchase your tickets online, they will be emailed to you as an attached PDF file. You can print them at home, or simply display the barcode portion on your smart phone at the venue. If you are printing your tickets at home, ensure you open the attachement (not just the preview) and keep the ticket its original size - don't shrink or distort it as the barcode will need to be scanned at the venue.
