Can I change the date or screening time of my film?
Official selections, once they have been made and the schedule has been released, cannot be changed. For this reason, we do not move screening times around. Date and time requests can be made at the time of submission, but are not guaranteed.
If you have questions concerning this, please email our filmmaker rep at email@example.com. We appreciate your understanding and know that together, we can fill seats for your screening.
Are filmmakers receiving comp tickets for the festival?**
Each film will be granted two complimentary All Access passes, which grant access to all events and screenings the entire weekend. In addition we are also offering you up to four One Day passes good only the day of your screening, for cast and crew to come support and/or be a part of your Q and A.
Individual tickets will be sold for blocks of films on the website and at the door (cash preferred). We encourage you to get the word out and have your fans buy their individual tickets in advance.
All passes are available online up to two days prior to the festival here: TICKETS
