GeekOut Pack buyers: Once tickets are available (Feb 5: Members, Feb 12: Public), we will contact you with instructions how to select your films. If you do not complete your selections at that time, we cannot guarantee the availability of certain films, as inventory begins to sell out once tickets are on sale to the public. Please select as early as possible!

Miami Film Society Members: These packages are in addition to, and separate from, your 2016 Festival ticket allocations.
