Upon purchasing a TIFF card online, cardholders will be e-mailed a unique code for reserving seats for the screenings and/or events of their choice. Cardholders can reserve seats for any screening and/or event in the program from any TIFF Box Office or online at tiff.eventbook.ro, upon presentation of the unique code received upon purchase of the card, within the limit of the seats available.

Physical SuperCards and IronCards are issued between May 27 — May 31 at the Casa TIFF ticketing point (6 Universităţii Street), but cardholders are not obligated to carry the cards on them: they can just use the unique code received by e-mail upon purchase to reserve seats.

Cardholders have access to a maximum of 6 screenings and/or events per day and cannot reserve 2 tickets for the same screening or event using the same card.

TIFF staff can grant access to all TIFF badge holders who did not get tickets 5 minutes before every screening, depending on the seat availability.

ATTENTION! Ticket holders arriving within 5 minutes of the starting time of the screening will not have seats guaranteed. No admissions allowed after the screening or event actually begins.

Seats are not numbered.

Some films may not be suited for children or may contain sex or violence. TIFF recommends checking the description of every film before getting tickets.
