Another Reason To Be Thankful: Film Festival Discounts

November 26, 2013

EB1T_Web_238x238The CB has written this one over and over in his head because, well, not everyone knows what that SIFF is the abbreviation for the Seattle International Film Festival and he doesn’t want people thinking he’s talking about getting a discount on contracting a social disease. Keep your mind out of the gutter, people!

Instead, the CB wants to tell you about a great SIFF deal that just crossed his desk–a sale on tickets and passes to next year’s film festival with big discounts.

“How big?” you ask.

Well, I’ll tell you. You can get up to 40% off, depending on your taste and budget.

If you’re just a neophyte film buff and like seeing the daylight some time during late May and early June, you can just opt for a bunch of tickets at a really good price. you can get a pack of six tickets for $60 (a $72 value) or a 20 pack for $180 (up to a $240 value).

If you’re such a big fan that you can’t imagine missing a single moment of the fest, though, there are whole festival passes. For example, you can get a Full Series pass that will also get you into press screenings for $585. That may seem like a pretty hefty price tag to be listed on the Cheap Bastard blog until you realize that the regular price is $1,055. That isn’t even the most expensive pass out there. If you were really serious about seeing everything at the fest, you could get a platinum plus pass that allows you to bypass lines and guarantees you a seat at all festival screenings, gala screenings, receptions and forums for a mere $1,785 (compared to $3,055). Oh, and did I mention that platinum plus pass holders also get a personal concierge who would handle many of your arrangements. That way, if you meet a Hollywood type you like, you can have their people get in touch with your people (okay, person actually).

Film Festival members save even more. For example, a full series pass is $550, 20 packs are $140 and 6 packs are $48.

It’s important to remember, however, that these are holiday prices and only good through December 1 or while supplies last. So, why bother with Black Friday lines when you can please yourself or your film-going friends with something you can buy now online?
