Passes, Memberships and Packages

All-Access Pass


Our All Access Pass offers the most flexibility and value, but does not guarantee seating. Please check in at least 20 minutes before showtime; after that time, or when we have reached our passholder allotment, you may be asked to join the Standby line.

The Opening and Closing Night Galas are included in your pass, as is an annual VJFF/VJFC membership.

This pass offers access for one person and is not transferable. Due to the liquor licence in place at The Fifth Avenue Cinemas, Pass sales are restricted to those who are 19+. Quantity is limited.

Passes need to be picked up at Will Call:

  • at the VJFF box office 
  • at the Fifth Avenue Cinemas once the festival begins.

Annual Membership

A $2 Annual Membership is required by BC law for all attendees 18 and over.

Memberships can be purchased online along with the ticket to your selected film, by phone or in person at our advance or venue box office or online here.

Memberships need to be picked up at WILL CALL:

  • at the VJFF box office 
  • at the Fifth Avenue Cinemas once the festival begins.
