ATTENDING THE FESTIVAL
ORDER TICKETS EARLY
Screenings can sell out quickly — especially Opening, Closing, and Centerpiece films — so get tickets in advance. Tickets are available to everyone on Wednesday, October 5.
DON’T BE LATE
All shows begin ON TIME and are not preceded by previews. No one is guaranteed a seat after a screening begins, not even ticket or badge holders. Lines will form 30 minutes before the scheduled screening, so come early.
Stay up-to-date on sell-outs, scheduling changes, special guest appearances, event information and more! Follow us on Twitter (@phillyfilmsoc), like us on Facebook (philafilmsociety), or sign up for our newsletter at www.filmadelphia.org.
FOLLOW THEATER ETIQUETTE
To ensure that everyone can find a seat quickly and that the film starts on time, seats cannot be held. Once the film has started, silence your cell phone and refrain from using it in the theater — a lit screen distracts everyone around you!
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 remember to thank your volunteers — we couldn’t do this without them!
Stop by the Festival Lounge! The Lounge is located at 126 Chestnut St and open daily to ALL ticket and Badge Holders age 21+ only starting Friday, 10/21, through Sunday, 10/30, 12:00 PM-10:00 PM. The Lounge offers light bites and special perks for badge holders.
*The Lounge will close at 4:00 PM on Friday, October 28, for Closing Night Festivities.
BE PREPARED, RELAX, AND ENJOY!
Lines will form outside, so remember to check the weather and dress appropriately. If there is a long line for a screening, don’t worry; if you have a ticket and arrive early, you will get in.
