Gifting a SIFF membership is easier than ever—purchase a SIFF gift membership and after purchase, you’ll be given a code in your confirmation email to send to the giftee for them to apply at checkout. No spoiled surprises and they can start the membership whenever they want.


  • SIFF Memberships are annual and valid for a 12-month cycle from the time of purchase.
  • All membership materials (including your popcorn punchcard and SIFF Member bumper sticker) can now be picked up at any of our year-round SIFF Cinema locations.
  • No member number is necessary, and no member card is necessary. Your SIFF membership is active immediately upon purchase so you can access the discount online at or at any of our year-round cinema box offices simply by providing your name and email. If you prefer, a physical membership card can be provided upon request.
  • SIFF Memberships are solely for the individual(s) whose name(s) are included at the time of purchase. Memberships cannot be transferred or shared with any other individuals. Violation of this will result in a cancellation of the membership without refund.
  • All SIFF Member benefits are subject to change and availability and are valid for one year from the time of purchase.


  • Volunteers can redeem five volunteer vouchers to receive a one-year membership. Find more information and redeem your volunteer vouchers for a membership by filling out the Vouchers for Membership Form.
