A CFI Annual Membership is an easy way to support the CFI and save yourself some money!
A CFI Cinephile Member will have free admission (with front-of-the-line priority) to every CFI event* for one year. That means they are always guaranteed a seat (up to 15 mins before**), even to sold out screenings. With over 80 screenings a year with the CFI (plus the 130+ screenings, talks, and events of the Ottawa International Animation Festival), a Cinephile Membership is a tremendous way to see exclusive international and Canadian films throughout the year.
Cinephile Members will also be invited to exclusive events and have their name appear in Festival programs in appreciation for their support. In lieu of free admission to Ottawa International Animation Festival events, Cinephile Members will receive a ticket-six-pack and be eligible for the discount ticket price for any additional screenings/talks they wish to attend. As the CFI is a charitable organization, half of an Cinephile Membership price is eligible for a charitable donation receipt. And, to share the CFI experience with a friend, each Cinephile Membership card comes with two Admit One ticket cards.
*Excludes OIAF, for which you will receive one ticket-six-pack and be eligible for the discount ticket price instead.
**Seats for Cinephile members and advance ticket holders are guaranteed until 15 minutes before scheduled screening time.
Purchase a CFI Membership through our online store (card(s) can be mailed or held for pick up at our office or next event), at our office, or at the CFI box office.
