Film Passes offer you great savings and flexibility, so you can buy your pass now and choose your films later.

Once you purchase a pass, you will be emailed a 7-digit code that is automatically linked to your account. You then redeem films from your pass. It’s that easy!

The options available are 6, 12 and 24 Film Pass. All passes can be redeemed for all regular film sessions, excluding all special events, including Opening Night Gala, Closing Night Gala, SWIFF Live, Wine Degustation and Workshops.

Passes can be used for up to 2 tickets per session, for example, if you purchase a 12 Film Pass you can treat yourself to 1 ticket to 12 individual sessions or bring a friend and select 2 tickets to 6 film sessions – the choice is yours!

There is only one account holder per pass, so if you would like to buy a Film Pass for a friend, please purchase a Gift Voucher and the lucky recipient can redeem for a Film Pass in their name.
