HOW TO SEE FILMS OF YOUR CHOICE
Plan your sched­ule ahead of time by con­sult­ing the schedule

• Films are grouped in 2-hour blocks, start­ing at 10 am, 1 pm,
4 pm and 7 pm in all venues, allow­ing a full hour to move
around the Fes­ti­val and/or get some­thing to eat.
Arrive at the begin­ning of a block of films that are grouped
together.
• There will not be a suf­fi­cient break between films to admit you
in the mid­dle of the time block.
20 min­utes before show time:
• Arrive at the venue where your wrist­band will be checked or
your punch card will be punched. Line up for admis­sion to the
the­ater. There will be two des­ig­nat­ed lines: all-access wristband
holders/filmmakers (pri­or­i­ty seat­ing) and punch card holders.
10 min­utes before show time:
• All-access wrist­band holders/filmmakers will be admit­ted to the
the­ater. Once they have entered, punch card hold­ers will be
admit­ted until the venue capac­i­ty is reached.
Please be prompt.
• This is a cour­tesy to all who wish to see the film without
dis­tur­bance. Late­com­ers will be admit­ted if space is available.
