Festival Guide The Not-So-Fine Print


Anyone (including pass holders) exiting an auditorium with plans to return to that particular screening must obtain a Re-entry Pass, and must return with their pass or ticket stub and re-entry pass. Seating will be done between the short films.

Standby Tickets

When a film screening is deemed "Standby," it means that the allotment of advance tickets has been reached. There is an allocation of seats for ticket holders and an allocation for pas holders. Seats that are set aside for pass holders or ticket holders that go unused are released for sale 10 minutes prior to screening. The released seats will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Standby lines form one hour prior to each screening.

Passholder Allotment

An allotment of seats are held at every screening for pass holders. Pass holders will be allowed preferred entrance into theatres up to 20 minutes prior to show time or until the pass holder allotment has been reached. Early arrival at all screenings is recommended. Passes (except Chairman Passes) do not guarantee seating and Pass Holders may not always be able to attend the film program of their first choice.
