AFI MEMBER FESTIVAL BENEFITS FAQ

WHAT IS A CINEPASS?

The Cinepass is an AFI FEST pass, exclusively available to AFI members. With a Cinepass, you won't have to reserve tickets online or at the box office. It's your passport to the best films of the year from around the world. Your AFI FEST Cinepass gives you:

  • ADMISSION FOR ONE (1) to all regular screenings and events, including Special Screenings, Conversations and Presentations, subject to seating availability. This does not include Galas.
  • VOUCHER FOR ONE (1) to spin the special members-only prize wheel at the member desk in the AT&T Box Office.
  • ENTRY FOR ONE (1) in the Red Carpet Getaway Sweepstakes, if registered by October 25.

Please note that your Cinepass does not guarantee admission. All screenings are first-come, first-served.

HOW DO I GET A CINEPASS?

Members will be notified by email when registration opens online on October 11. You can prepare for Cinepass registration by ensuring you have a current account on AFI.com.

WHAT IF I MISS THE PRE-REGISTRATION DEADLINE?

Members may still claim their Cinepass in person at the AT&T Box Office when it opens on November 5, but may need to wait up to an hour to receive the pass.

WHAT ABOUT PRIORITY ACCESS?

When you purchase a Priority Pass, you get priority admission to all regular festival screenings, including Special Screenings and Conversations, without the need for a hard ticket.

HOW DO I GET TICKETS TO GALAS?

Free Gala vouchers will be available online at AFI.com/AFIFEST beginning October 30. A Gala voucher is a reservation for your place in line to a Gala screening — it is NOT a hard ticket and does not guarantee admission.

You can secure your reserved seats to Gala screenings by purchasing a Gala or Red Carpet Package.
