TICKETING INFORMATION

HOW TO BUY TICKETS
Tickets to any screening can be purchased online, by phone, at any festival theatrical venue (only on screening dates), or at the PFS Theater at The Roxy up to 30 minutes before showtime, subject to availability. Thirty minutes prior to showtime, tickets can only be purchased at the screening venue. Venue box offices open 30 minutes before the first screening of the day and close 15 minutes after the last screening of the day begins. Seating for ticket holders is only guaranteed until 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time; no late seating.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS, RETURNS, OR EXCHANGES.

WILL CALL
When ordering tickets online or over the phone, you can select Will Call to have your tickets available for pickup at the venue prior to showtime.

RUSH TICKETS
Even when tickets for a screening are no longer available, there is still a chance for admission through the Rush Line. In most cases, a limited number of Rush tickets are released shortly before show time. Rush tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Cash only, full price. Students w/ valid ID may purchase $5 Rush tickets, except when noted. Please plan on lining up 30 minutes in advance for Rush.

KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL FESTIVAL

ORDER TICKETS EARLY
Screenings can sell quickly – especially Opening, Closing, and Centerpiece films – so get your tickets in advance. Tickets are available to everyone beginning Tuesday, September 30th at the PFS Theater at The Roxy. PFS Members have access to an exclusive four day pre-sale beginning Friday, September 26th.

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 a half-hour before the screening, so come early.

STAY UPDATED
Stay up to date on sell-outs, scheduling changes, special guests, event info and more! Follow us on Twitter (@PhillyFilmFest), like us on Facebook (Philadelphia Film Festival), 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, please silence your cell phone and refrain from using it while in the theater – a lit screen will distract everyone around you!

SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS
We want to hear from you! Fill out the Audience Award voting 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!

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 your screening, don’t worry; if you have a ticket and arrive early, you will get in.
