Membership Requirement:

To attend a qathet international film festival screening, all attendees 18 and older must hold a valid 2023 qathet film society membership. (qathet film society is responsible for operating in compliance with the Motion Picture Act and Consumer Protection BC. Only registered not-for-profit film societies are allowed to screen films that have not been classified by Consumer Protection BC, and only members are permitted to be present at the place where a non-classified film is being exhibited.)

  • If you purchase a Festival Pass or Matinee Pass, Membership is included with your pass ($5 value).
  • If you are ordering individual tickets, you will need to purchase a membership for each person attending screenings. Membership cards can be purchased on this site, or at a qiff sales kiosk. Memberships will also be available for sale during the Festival at the Patricia Theatre box office.



What is the age requirement for a senior's pass/ticket? 65 and older qualify for senior's rate.

What time should I be at the Theatre for a screening? Doors open 30 minutes before screening for ticket sales and entry. Patrons are advised to arrive as early as possible. We hold seats for pass and ticket holders until 10 minutes before screening, at which time available seats will be offered for sale as Rush Tickets.

What are Rush Tickets? When all pre-sale tickets have been sold for a particular film, advance ticket sales are closed and any remaining tickets become available as Rush Tickets. Rush Tickets become available in the last 10 minutes before the movie screening when ticket-holders and pass-holders don't show up. For highly anticipated films, we recommend coming early to secure your spot in the Rush Line, as only a very limited number of tickets will become available and admission cannot be guaranteed.

What can I bring into the event? Anything purchased at Concession at Patricia Theatre can be taken in to enjoy during a film.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Email linda@qathetfilm.ca or phone 1-416-554-9663.

What's the refund policy? No refunds, but please reach out if there are extenuating circumstances.
