How long does my membership last?
Each membership is valid for one (1) year from the date it is processed. Memberships are not self-renewing and will require manual renewal to avoid a lapse in benefits.
Will I be notified when my membership is due for renewal?
Yes, we will reach out to you before your expiration date to announce your renewal date is coming up and again before the membership is set to expire.
What do I do if I want to update my personal information?
To update your personal information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I join at one level and then upgrade to another?
Of course! If you would like to upgrade after you’ve purchased a membership, e-mail email@example.com and we’ll assist with the changes.
Will I receive notifications regarding tickets to films/events?
You will receive regular invitations from the Miami Film Society Office and weekly communications as we approach Gems Film Festival and Miami Film Festival with line-up reveals and ticket ordering instructions.
Are tickets automatically sent to members?
No, members must claim tickets in advanced by logging in to the ticketing site or contacting the Miami Film Society Office. We recommend placing orders as soon as possible as many events sell out and we cannot make any exceptions or exchanges of benefits.
If I purchase a ticket and then later realize I can’t attend the event, can I get a refund/exchange?
Miami Film Festival has an official no refunds, no exchanges policy. We ask that you please be sure of all your selections before completing your transaction. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If I can’t use my tickets, can someone else use them on my behalf?
Yes, you may give your film or event tickets to someone else so that they may attend instead. Please note, invitations to private events are non-transferable.
I need help understanding my complimentary ticket allowance.
Please contact the Miami Film Society Office at (305) 237-7979 and we will explain how many complimentary tickets you are entitled to based on your membership level and what categories they apply to.
Can my complimentary tickets be used for any film/event in any category?
Each membership level has a specific set of benefits associated with it. Complimentary tickets may not be exchanged or substituted.
