Festival Questions

How does seating work?

All Badge Holders and Ticket Holders must be seated 15 minutes before showtime to guarantee their seat. Empty seats will be sold to Rush Line patrons. All seats are general admission, and multiple-seat saving is not permitted. Please understand there is select, limited reserved seating for certain level of members and sponsors.

What if I’m late to a screening?

Late seating is not guaranteed. If you arrive late, and seats are still available, you may be seated at the discretion of the Theater Manager. Please keep in mind, if it is a sold out show, remaining empty seats are sold to the Rush Line 15 minutes before show time. We strongly encourage you to arrive and be seated 15 minutes prior to the published show start time.

What are Rush Tickets?

Rush tickets are sold 10 minutes before showtime at the theater where the film is being shown. If a film is at Rush, it means that there are no more advance sales tickets for that screening. We try to accommodate all pass holders and ticket holders up until 15 minutes prior to the screening. If there are any available seats, tickets will be sold to the Rush Line on a first come, first serve basis. If you are not seated 15 minutes before showtime, you are in danger of your seat being sold to the Rush Line.

Can I reserve tickets?

Tickets are either purchased or not purchased. They cannot be reserved.

Can I get tickets for other days/theatres at any box office?

Yes! All Theater Box Offices can process advanced ticket purchases. The immediate screening has priority with ticket sales over advanced ticket sales; this allows proper timing for theater traffic to run smoothly.

Can I get day of show tickets at the box office?

Yes! On the day of the screening, tickets are for sale at all of the venues and online, subject to availability. The theater box offices open 1 hour before the first screening of the day and closes 30 minutes after the last screening. If day-of-show tickets are no longer available, you can always try the Rush Line!

Can I swap my tickets?

Unfortunately, no. Due to limited capacities at each theater, we can only honor the tickets you purchased.

Can I get a refund?

Unfortunately, no. We do not allow exchanges or refunds. All orders are final.

What if I lost my tickets?

Unfortunately, we cannot reprint tickets. The Festival is not responsible for lost, stolen, forgotten or damaged tickets.
