What's On, December 2023


Types of Tickets

Festival Pass

Are you a cinephile? If you plan on seeing several films during the festival, consider buying a Festival Pass for an unlimited film experience. They’re convenient and can save you money.

Student Rate

General Tickets

Single tickets available at two price points for any general screening. Adult and Student/Youth. Show your valid student ID for discounted single tickets or festival passes.

General 10-Pack

NEW for 2023. The 10-Pack is a perfect way to see a lot of movies while saving some money. Redeem for 10 ticket vouchers that can be used for any general screening.

Premium Tickets

The buzzworthy screenings of films that will only play once at the festival. Want to see what all the hype is about? Join us for Opening Night Film, Closing Night Film or our New Centerpiece Film.

VIP 3-Pack

NEW for 2023. Have fear or missing out on our premium screenings? Buy a VIP 3-Pack and save money while you’re at it. Redeem for 3 ticket vouchers that can be used for any of our premium screenings.

Women of WIFF

Join our grassroots initiative by supporting our Women of WIFF special screening. For a special price, you can become a Women of WIFF donor and get a ticket to the movie and an invite to an exclusive post-film reception.

Standby Tickets

Sometimes advance tickets are sold out, but don’t despair. A limited number of “standby tickets” will be available at the venue just before showtime.

If you want to explore this option, arrive at the box office early and join the “standby line.” Be advised: When this line is admitted, it will be one ticket per person — you won’t be able to buy tickets for anyone who isn’t present.
