NEW! We’ve heard your feedback and are excited to offer new rules for pass-holders this year. Please read carefully!

Passes are non-transferable. Once you purchase a pass, you will receive an email (the next business day) with instructions for how to select the films you would like to see during the Festival. You do not need to wait for this email to start selecting films. Once your films are selected, any tickets that fall under your pass will be discounted to $0. Any tickets over your allotted amount, will be charged. You may choose to print those tickets at home or pick them up at the Box Office on the day of the screening. Click on the button below for Step-By-Step instructions to reserving tickets online.

Pass-holders will receive a personalized Festival Badge that is required in order to access the pass-holder line.

You do not need to reserve a ticket in advance (but we encourage you to do so!). All pass-holders are guaranteed a seat if they are in line 15 minutes before the start time.  

If pass-holders do not arrive 15 minutes before the start time, access will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis (space permitting).


Single ticket sales begin in late April. You may purchase single tickets to any screening by visiting the film schedule, selecting Buy Tickets on each film page and adding them to your cart.

We always recommend purchasing tickets in advance. Each night, advance ticket sales end at midnight for all events on the next day. There will be a limited supply of tickets available for purchase at an on-site box office one hour prior the event start time. If an event is sold out online, a rush line will be available at the venue one hour prior to the start time where you will have the opportunity to wait in line and purchase tickets as they become available.


  • Regular screening tickets are $13 online* and $15 at the door.
  • Opening/Closing are $30 online* and $35 at the door.
  • Spotlight Evenings are $20 online* and $25 at the door.

Watching films with a group of your friends or co-workers is a great way to experience the Festival! We offer discount pricing for groups starting at 10 or more. The more people you bring the lower each ticket price becomes. To inquire about ticket prices for your group, please email Alexis Rodriguez at alexisr@edcjcc.org.
