ATTENDING THE FESTIVAL
ORDER TICKETS EARLY
Advance tickets can sell out quickly – especially for Opening, Closing, and Centerpiece films – so get your tickets early. Tickets are available to everyone on Monday, October 8.
Lines will form 30 minutes before the scheduled screening. Films are not preceded by previews. No one is guaranteed a seat after a screening begins, not even ticket or badge holders.
Lines will form outside, so remember to check the weather and dress appropriately.
FOLLOW THEATER ETIQUETTE
Please be courteous to your fellow film lovers! No phones and no talking once the film has begun.
SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS
We want to hear from you! Fill out the Audience Award ballot for each screening to let us know what films stood out this year, and we’ll announce the winner after the Festival.
STOP BY THE LOUNGE!
The Festival Lounge is a space for badge and ticket holders to grab a snack or drink between screenings and discuss what you’ve seen with your fellow Festival-goers!
Remember to thank your volunteers. We couldn’t do this without them!
Please see individual film listings for guests anticipated to attend. Guests schedules may change.
