How to buy a Pass
 
You don't need a pass to attend the OIAF , you can also buy single tickets - just like going to a movie!  BUT you need a pass to get into our world famous picnic and our parties.  Buying a pass is convenient and less expensive if you want to take in a lot of screenings, talks,  professional development activities and meet with recruiters.  Plus you get a cool bag.

If you are an animation business type or you want to break into the animation business then you'll want to attend  The Animation Conference (TAC)  and you'll definitely need a TAC pass for that.

Step One:  Choose a pass.   (Check out the handy guide below)
Step Two:  Log into the website  and/or create an account.  Make sure you reply to the verification email we send you.  
Step Three:  Once you are logged in, you will see a User Menu option.  Select Order a pass.  
Step Four:  Book your hotel  because rooms will be scarce in September and you don't want to be staying in the Perth Budget Inn.  

If you get stuck or if you have any questions - give us a call at (613) 232-8769.
