Payment can be made using cash, credit, debit on-line and PayPal options thereby creating the most diverse ticketing environment available today. By utilizing RepeatSeat's proprietary ticketing and data management technology we will be able to ensure that CIFF continues to be recognized as one the pre-eminent film festivals in Canada. We are confident that global film festivals will take note of CIFF's lead and look to RepeatSeat to provide a similar suite of services."

RepeatSeat has grown to become the largest online movie ticketing company in Canada and North America's leading mCommerce ticketing solution provider. Jacqueline Dupuis, Executive Director of CIFF stated "The Calgary International Film Festival (CIFF) is a leader in arts and cultural innovation and diversity, and we are excited to be working with RepeatSeat, a Calgary company that continually demonstrates its willingness and ability to innovate through creative means of ticket delivery, data capture and cross marketing."
