Rush Only Screenings

Rush Only means all advance tickets are sold out. Tickets may be available on the day of the screening to those in the rush line.

Roughly one hour before a screening, a rush line will form outside of the venue. Fifteen minutes before the screening, Festival staff count empty seats and allow the corresponding number of patrons from the rush line to purchase tickets at that time. Think of it as flying standby.

In the past, over 80 per cent of people who waited in the rush line were able to attend.

Films on this list may have tickets available for alternate screenings. FIND SCREENINGS
