PREMIER, CINEPHILE, FOUNDING, and PLATINUM FOUNDING MEMBERS: Your pass gives you entry to all GIFF 2016 Festival events. The only difference between these pass levels is the number of tickets you receive to each event. To clarify the number of tickets you receive, please contact the VIP Concierge.
HOW YOUR PASS WORKS
Your VIP Pass can be picked up from our Box Office on June 7th-9th. This pass is your ticket in to each event you wish to attend. This means that you can attend any screening or panel as long as you have your VIP pass. For some of our more popular events, we do ask that you RSVP due to limited capacity, so we can ensure that you have premier seating. The VIP Concierge will be in contact regarding which events you should RSVP for.
Our Box Office address is 19 West Elm Street, Greenwich, CT. The VIP Concierge will be at the Box Office June 7th-9th to answer any questions you have regarding the Festival.
