2016-2017 Annual Membership

Admission to VAFF screenings is limited to those over 18 years of age holding a valid VAFF membership card.

As a registered non-profit society, the Vancouver Asian Film Festival screens films that have not been reviewed by the B.C. Film Classification Board. Under B.C. law any person wishing to see these unclassified films must be a registered member of the Film Festival Society and be 18 years of age or older. Membership period is valid until May 31, 2017. ($2 – Membership fee)

Unless you are a pass-holder, please carry your membership card with you at all times. You will be required to show your card at every screening you attend. If you cannot produce a valid membership card, we’re afraid we must ask you to purchase another one at that time.
