Festival Passes


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 27th WJFF. All pass-holders are guaranteed a seat if they are in line 15 minutes before the start time. You must have your pass with you to access the pass-holder line.

If pass-holders do not arrive 15 minutes in advance of the screening, access will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis (space permitting).

You do not need to reserve advance tickets online, although we always encourage you to do so. Click on the button below to view a step-by-step guide for reserving tickets online.


Passes purchased on or prior to May 3rd will be mailed directly to you the week before the Festival. Passes purchased on or after May 4th will be available for pick-up at the Edlavitch DCJCC between May 8-16, 2017 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.
