AFI MEMBER FESTIVAL BENEFITS FAQ

WHAT IS A CINEPASS?

The Cinepass is an AFI FEST badge, exclusively available to AFI members. Your Cinepass allows you to attend screenings without the hassle of having to register for individual tickets. 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 Special Screenings, Conversations, Presentations, the Tech Showcase and general screenings, subject to seating availability. Does not include access to Galas.
  • ACCESS FOR ONE (1) to the VIZIO Lounge and Cinema Lounge at The Hollywood Roosevelt (7000 Hollywood Boulevard), on a space-available basis, excluding Gala after-parties. Open to members Friday, 11/10 – Thursday, 11/16 11am–4pm, except for Tuesday 11/14.
  • ENTRY FOR ONE (1) in special members-only giveaways held Friday through Wednesday, November 10–15 at the member desk in the AT&T Box Office. Giveaways include Express Tickets, membership upgrades and more. You do not need to be present to win.
    • ENTRY FOR ONE (1) to special Pass Holder Happy Hour at The Hollywood Roosevelt, North Garden Bar, open Friday, 11/10 – Sunday, 11/12 from 4–7pm.

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

Vouchers will be available for pick-up at the AT&T Box Office beginning November 4.

WHAT ABOUT PRIORITY ACCESS?

If you would like priority admission to screenings, you may want to buy an Express Pass. Additionally, if you want to guarantee reserved seats to a Gala, consider purchasing a Premiere, Marquee or Star Package. Two-Star members and above are eligible for a 10% discount on all passes. Red carpet underwriting opportunities are available by contacting Clare Kiklowicz at 323.856.7605.
