All programs and show times are subject to change without notice. No
refunds or exchanges. A $2 – $10 per ticket processing fee applies to
all screenings + events.

When selecting films, remember to allow yourself enough time to travel
between the venues. At 15 minutes to show-time, empty seats may be sold to ‘rush line.’ Info about rush lines below.

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 advanced 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 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 theatre 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 get tickets for other days/theaters at any box office during the festival?
Yes, you may purchase tickets for any Festival event, on any day of the Festival, at any Festival box office.

Can I swap my tickets?
No. Due to limited capacities at each theater, we can only honor the tickets you purchased.

What if I lost my tickets?
We cannot reprint tickets. The Festival is not responsible for lost, stolen, forgotten or damaged tickets.

Can I get a refund?
We do not allow exchanges or refunds. All orders are final.
