How 2019 Ticket Pre-Selection Works



All Ticket Package customers get first pick of tickets to films and Signature Programs. Customers will receive an email on May 10, 2019 with information on how to pre-select their tickets. Tickets and invitations may be picked up at festival headquarters starting Sunday, June 16.

We strongly encourage all Ticket Package customers to take advantage of the ticket pre-selection period from May 13 - 19. Customers can continue to make selections after individual tickets go on sale to general public on May 20, and are subject to availability.  

Unused selections will be converted to vouchers, redeemable in person for applicable screenings and/or Signature Programs, based on availability.  

Ticket Package holder must use the General Entry Line and present their ticket for admission to the associated screening/program. Your badge alone does not guarantee admission, you must present your ticket. To guarantee admission all ticket holders must be in line at least 15 minutes prior to schedule start time of the screening/program.
