First, purchase the pass that would suit you best; there are five 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 7 digit pass code on it.
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 for 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 pricing section click on “Enter Pass Number”. You’ll be prompted to enter the 7 digit pass code which will assign the session to your pass, then select Quantity 1. If you have two passes or more, select “Add another pass” to repeat the process. Then click “Add to Cart”. Continue for other events and screenings you’ve selected. Click on “Checkout” to finalise your bookings.
Film Prize and Weekend Cinepasses are physical (hard) passes with a barcode which stores all of the sessions you have selected. 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.
Industry, 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 downloaded onto your app for scanning.
