This is the ultimate viewing experience. Your VIP admission gets you a festival lanyard, access to the MadTree House (cocktail viewing + lounge + upstairs bar,) your own itinerary for the weekend (including bonus events on the Wednesday and Sunday of the festival,) access to all parties, networking events, and the filmmaker lounge, and an online pass where you can catch any films you missed for the month following the festival.

Oh, and did we mention the VIP Treasure Hunt? You’ll have to grab your ticket to learn more.


3-Day Admission

3-Day admission lets you catch films and classes across Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the 2019 festival. You receive General Admission seating, and get to attend all screenings, classes, networking events, and parties over the course of three days. Get your calendar ready!

Please know you can enter and exit as you choose, and will be given a 3-Day wristband upon check-in.

Day Pass

Only have time to visit for one day? Coming to see a friend or family filmmaker and want to hang out? The Day Pass gives you access to all screenings and parties at The Woodward Theater on either Thursday, Friday, or Saturday of the festival (your choice!) General admission seating only with the Day pass admission.

You can enter and exit as it suits you, and will be given a wristband upon check-in.


Single Admission

Is there one film in particular you are just ready to see? Grab a single admission ticket - either ahead of time, or at the door (while supplies last,) and sidle in to take your photo on the step/repeat, grab a drink, and find your best seat possible.

Don’t forget the Q&As following each screening! You’ll get the opportunity to ask questions of attending filmmakers and share your experience of watching films together.


Not able to attend in person? Want to catch any films you missed after the festival? An online pass to FestiVault will allow you to screen films from our 2019 line-up.
