Members only

Wellington Film Society is open to everyone.  As we have non-commercial screening rights we operate on a subscription basis that requires us to screen to members only.

Annual subscription prices:

$120     Single
$220     Double   A discounted rate for any two people at the same address
$110     Discounted   Available to full-time students over 16; Members of WIFT;  senior citizens and registered beneficiaries (with ID).
$50      Youth    Available if you are aged 16 or under. A few films may be classified R16 or greater. Youth members gain entry to all other films as well as enjoying the member benefits at the International Film Festival.
$40      Three-Film Sampler   This gives access to any three films in the twelve months from the month of joining. It is valid only for the person named on the card and is not transferable.  It does not qualify for discounts at the Film Festival or other concessions.  Cards can be upgraded to full membership on payment of price difference.  By paying the difference you can upgrade to a full year membership.  The expiry date of the full membership will be that of the original Three-Film Sampler. Lost cards will not be replaced.

Terms & Conditions of Membership

Membership runs for twelve months from the month of joining.  All prices quoted on the website and on application forms are in NZ dollars. There is no refund for a cancelled membership. All memberships are non-transferable.
Membership cards can be collected at the next screening after purchase or renewal.  When you join or renew online, you will receive a return email acknowledgement.

Online Payments

Online payments are made using external sites that encrypt all personal and financial data using SSL technology.  Credit card details are not stored or seen by anyone from the Film Society as they go directly to the payment gateway and the bank.
