SIFF Memberships are annual or biennial and valid for a 12-month or 24-month cycle from the time of purchase.
In an effort to streamline our process for members, we are no longer mailing the popcorn and membership card. You may pick up your card at any SIFF Cinema location the next time you visit. Simply ask a SIFF staff member for assistance. You do not need a popcorn and membership card to access member discounts on SIFF Cinema and Festival tickets. Membership cards are required to access certain member benefits at Caffe Umbria, Queen Anne Beerhall, Scarecrow Video, The Traveling Goat, and Northwest Film Forum.
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 or two years from the time of purchase.
