I don't think there's a prepackaged way of doing this.  I've had some
luck with the following.  One thing it doesn't do is treat the + and -
as separate from the options following, but a bit of patience might sort
that out.

It's actually written to complete options for the fictitious "flags"
command, so you also have to insinuate it into ffmpeg completion

#compdef flags

# Attempt to get something that completes
# +flag1+flag2-flag3 etc.

_flag_options() {
  local expl
  _wanted options expl 'option' compadd -S '' -- {-,+}${^flag_options}

_more_flag_options() {
  compset -p $1 && _flag_options

_new_flag_options() {
  compset -P '*' && _flag_options

_flags() {
  local -a flag_options
  flag_options=(foo foobar bar)

  local match mbegin mend
  integer ret=1

  if [[ $PREFIX = (#b)(*)[-+]([^-+]#) ]]; then
    if [[ -n ${flag_options[(R)$match[2]]} ]]; then
      _new_flag_options && ret=0
    if [[ -n ${flag_options[(R)$match[2]?*]} ]]; then
      _more_flag_options ${#match[1]} && ret=0
    _flag_options && ret=0

  return $ret

_flags "$@"
