Streaming Cap

Each CIFF45 Streams film has a ticket holder streaming cap (which when reached, tickets are no longer sold and a film is marked "TICKETS SOLD OUT") as well as a passholder streaming cap (which when reached, a film is "SOLD OUT" and is no longer available for passholders to stream and is only available to pre-existing ticket holders).

TICKETS SOLD OUT

All CIFF45 Streams films are limited to a maximum number of streams (or streaming cap) on a first come, first served basis. Once all tickets to a film are sold, the film will be marked as “TICKETS SOLD OUT” on the CIFF website. Pre-existing ticket holders for that film and all CIFF passholders will still be able to stream the film. For CIFF45 Streams programming updates, visit our Latest Updates.

SOLD OUT

All CIFF45 Streams films are limited to a maximum number of streams (or streaming cap) on a first come, first served basis. Once all tickets to a film are sold, the film will be marked as “TICKETS SOLD OUT” on the CIFF website. Pre-existing ticket holders for that film and all CIFF passholders will still be able to stream the film.


When a film’s status has been marked “TICKETS SOLD OUT” and then the passholder streaming cap on a film is reached, the film’s status will be updated to “SOLD OUT” and the film will become unavailable to stream for passholders. However, pre-existing ticket holders for the film will still be able to stream the film. We suggest you prioritize the films you’d like to stream first.
