First, purchase the pass that would suit you best; there are seven alternatives, each offering a different festival experience, for all or part of the festival period.
You will be emailed a receipt for the pass you’ve purchased which will contain your unique 8 digit pass code.
Some of these passes will have events automatically added to it once you purchase – please check the Buy Cinepasses website page for the details of these sessions.
Second, peruse the program for other events and general screenings of films you’d like to attend. On the CinefestOZ website you can browse sessions based on your preferences, such as date, venue, event type, content, country of origin or keyword. Use the drop-down checkboxes to simplify your search. Once you’ve chosen some sessions, make sure these are valid for the specific pass you’ve purchased. Click on the session, and in the Code section of the pricing enter the 8 digit pass code. Click “Validate” and then you can select a $0.00 value ticket to add to your pass. If you have two passes or more, repeat the process then click “Add to Cart”. Continue for other events and screenings you’ve selected. Click on “Checkout” to finalise your bookings.
Platinum, Film Prize, Weekend, Industry and Student Cinepasses are physical (hard) passes with a barcode which stores all of the sessions you have selected. This will be provided to you during Festival week. Please bring this hard pass with you to all events and screenings for scanning on entry. You will not receive an email with tickets to be printed for each session.
Mixed Bag and Multi Cinepasses are electronic passes, and tickets for each session selected will be emailed out to you. These can be printed or the barcode presented on your phone for scanning.
