Same Day Tickets at Venues

Any available tickets will be available 1 hour before show time at the venue box office where the film is screening. Cash or credit cards are accepted at all screening locations. No checks accepted.


Sold Out/Rush Tickets

If a screening is “sold out” online and at the box office, but don’t worry! We hold a number of seats for passholders and industry guests, so if they don’t show up, we’ll be able to release tickets to the rush line. 10 minutes before showtime, we’ll do a headcount and see if we can accommodate additional guests. If so, tickets will be sold to those in the rush line on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The rush line will form at least 30 minutes before the start of the show. Only cash will be accepted for Rush Tickets.

Festival Passes give you priority access to screenings without having to select tickets in advance of the Festival. Simply show up at the screening of your choice at least 30 minutes prior to the published screening start time to gain priority entrance to the theatre. All Pass-holders must be seated 15 minutes prior to the published screening start time to guarantee their seats. We will sell open seats to Rush Line patrons 10 minutes before the scheduled screening time.

Passes may be purchased online through November 12, 2015 or at the High Falls Film Festival box office at the Little Theatre on Thu & Fri November 12-13, 2015 from 5-7pm.

There will be a special All-Access/Film-Only pass-holders line at each venue.

Please note:  All-Access/Film-Only passes are non-transferable AND DO NOT GUARANTEE SEATING.

Allotments of seats are reserved at every screening for pass-holders; these seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. As many films sell out, pass-holders are encouraged to come at least 30 minutes prior to screen time at desired film events for admission.
