The Festival will have several types of entry tickets this year: a punch card good for 4, 8, or 12 films/events on any of the three days of the Festival and a wristband that allows entry to all films/events during the Festival. Punch cards may be shared with family and friends; all-access wristbands are for one person only and may not be shared. Tickets for a single film are also available for purchase. Tickets purchased prior to October 15 will be held in will-call at the Theatre Box Office, and may be exchanged for punch cards and wristbands at the Box Office after that date. All of the film screenings are “festival seating,” which means seating is first-come, first-served up to the venue capacity. All-access wristband holders (along with guest filmmakers) will have priority seating. Note: entry is not guaranteed to any specific film.
