Vouchers are no longer available for purchase. Vouchers can only be obtained through CIFF membership benefits at certain levels, CIFF donations, or CIFF sponsorships & community partnerships.

Tickets are designated for a screening of a specific film with a specific screening time and date. Paper Vouchers are non-specific and therefore, will not admit you to a film.

A big heartfelt thank you to Mark Smith who has served valiantly as CIFF Board President for the past four years! He passed the torch to his successor, Nancy Callahan, at tonight's meeting. We are so appreciative of these two amazing individuals. Nancy, here we go!
