Discounted NZIFF Tickets for WIFT Members

Posted Monday 08 Jul 2013

Ok folks, the good news is you do receive a discount for the NZIFF if you are a WIFT member - you pay $14 instead of $16 for an adult ticket.

Unfortunately you can't exercise this discount online - so you have to either book over the phone (0800 842 538) or in person at one of the Ticketek box office venues. You will need your WIFT card with you for both options.

The other good news is that if you book in person you don't have to pay the courier cost for tickets which is around $8.

So go out there and book yourself some choice films and make the most of your WIFT membership.

Happy viewing - the weather seems to be cooperating throughout the country!
