1) Same-day Tickets
100 same-day tickets are available per program.
These tickets allow for admission to program screenings and events without advanced registration.
Same-day tickets will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis for all programs shown that day starting 20 minutes before the day’s first screening.
Same-day tickets are limited to one ticket per person per program.
2) Registration for Priority Admission
Seats can be secured in advance by applying for tickets through the online ticket platform Peatix. (Audience members who apply through Peatix will be admitted before those sitting in non-reserved seats and same-day ticket holders.) Please visit the schedule page, click on the program screening or event you would like to attend, and follow the link to Peatix’s website for instructions on how to apply.
* Up to two tickets can be requested per person per program when applying for priority admissions.
* Applications for priority admission are accepted until 11:55 p.m. the day before screening, but may close early if seats fill up.
* Same-day tickets will still be available even if applications close for priority admission.
For those who apply for priority admissions, please receive your numbered ticket at the venue’s reception area on the day of the program. You can receive your numbered admission tickets for every program that day starting 20 minutes before the first screening of the day. Seats will be held to cover the number of audience members who have applied for priority seating, but please be aware that if you do not claim your numbered ticket before at least five minutes prior to screening, your application will be considered cancelled.
If you would like to cancel your reservation, please notify us via Peatix. Other people hoping for entry may miss their chance for admission if we are not notified of your cancellation. These short films are being screened for free so that as many people as possible can enjoy them. We appreciate you cooperation.
* Those who do not show up to their scheduled screening without notice of cancellation may be denied the ability to make future reservations.
