All Patrons Circle Members will continue to receive physical welcome packages via Canada Post when they join or renew.

How do I redeem my complimentary film vouchers?

Your film vouchers will be placed into your TIFF Account Manager shortly after you join or renew. They may be redeemed for regular year-round screenings at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
