Buying Tickets

Advance bookings are available for all NZIFF screenings from Monday 18 July.


You have the option to select your own seats if you book online, using the
‘CHANGE SEAT’ button before you complete your purchase.

Tickets purchased online will be emailed to you, allowing you to print them at home, or present them on a mobile device.

You can buy 20 tickets per transaction.

Printing tickets

Please ensure you print your ticket, not just your confirmation letter, and bring your ID if you have booked concession discount tickets.


You may present your ticket on your mobile. Please ensure your ticket is loaded and ready for presentation (along with a concession ID).
