What are CIFF's Membership Policies?

CIFF memberships are annual and only valid for one Festival cycle. The majority of members will be issued a renewal date one year from the time of their membership purchase. However, CIFF memberships will not be issued for two Festival cycles. As a result, CIFF memberships purchased in March or April will be issued a renewal date at the end of February of the following year.

CIFF memberships are per individual. Memberships cannot be transferred or shared with other individuals. Members in violation of this will have their membership revoked without refund.

CIFF memberships are tax deductible to the maximum amount allowed by law. CIFF members receive goods and services in exchange for their contribution, the value of which often exceeds their contribution depending on the level of use. Therefore, it is up to the individual to determine the tax deductible value of their contribution.

By purchasing a CIFF membership you agree to adhere to the CIFF Code of Conduct. Failure to observe organizational policies regarding member conduct at CIFF events and screenings may result in termination of membership without refund.
