The first 50 to become members will be entered into a raffle with a chance to win a $25 voucher to Pizzeria Verita.

Festival Gold Pass: $120 or $200 for two

Passes will be available once the festival program is online.
If you’re not local and are just visiting the festival, this is the best way to enjoy it, giving you the freedom to come and go as you please.
Gold Pass holders may book tickets for specific screenings in advance.
We strongly recommend booking online in advance.  If you have a Festival Pass, you may come directly to the screening, but to secure a seat we recommend arriving 15 minutes ahead of time. Although we reserve  seats for Pass holders, seating is on a first-come/first-serve basis.
