Reader's Digest Version

If you've chosen your events and know what film(s) you want to see, the next step is to go online fliff.com or call us at 525-FILM and order them in advance. Don't have a credit card? No problemo, FLIFF is so 20th Century we still take cash and you can buy them at the door. Then get yourself and your movie-going chums on down to the theatre about 15 minutes before showtime, and voila! You're FLIFF'ing!  No medical exams, no shots, no misplaced luggage (we can't confirm that won't happen actually), no credit report -- bingo!

FAST PASS (FP)

If you're serious about movies...then you'll seriously want to consider the FLIFF Fast Pass: A photo ID card you wear around your neck...a ticket to ease.  

Why is it so wonderful?  The FP is your perfect FLIFF companion as it allows you to access all film screenings without standing in the Ticket Line.  No need to carry cash or to worry about special screenings. No wait in the standard Ticket Line. You receive VIP service to the theaters. 

FAST PASS includes all FLIFF scheduled screenings (Nov 6-22, 2015), Opening Night, Centerpiece Film and Wrap Party.  *Does not include the Festival Cafe Events. Those are individually sponsored, but we certainly welcome you to inquire about supporting one or more of those! 
For more info, email: Michellef@fliff.com 

FLIFF FP Member Price $395
Non Member Price       $450

RULES

Not a lot of them. Pretty simple:

  • Turn off your cellphones during the film.
  • Don't even text in the theatre during the film - it's annoying.
  • Can't abide by those two- please just stay home and watch television.
  • Also, no videotaping during film (everyone knows that).
  • Be courteous to other members of the audience- and sure, while we're at it, what the hay, the staff too!

PLASTIC

Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover 

ATTIRE

Dress up, dress down. Whatever you like to do.  Just be comfortable and you'll feel fine. Rule of thumb: If it's a Gala, you can bet there's some pretty fantastic Black Tie going on, so polish your shoes and take it up a few notches. If it's one of our amazing parties, some of us like to say 'swanky night out wear'. People generally get that.
