Doors open 25 minutes prior to each program. Theaters will be cleared after each event. Ticket and pass holders must be in the theater ten minutes prior to each program to guarantee their seats. Arrive on time! Admission may be restricted after a program begins.
FREE TICKETS – IN-PERSON SCREENINGS
Current W&M students may claim free tickets by waiting in a standby line prior to ticketed screenings. Students in the standby line will be able to enter the theater to fill available seats until capacity is reached, just prior to the screening. A current student ID must be presented, with a maximum of one ticket per person per show. We do not have control over when standby lines will form and cannot advise students on an arrival time. Saving places in the line is not permitted.
FREE TICKETS – VIRTUAL FESTIVAL
Students can claim a free pass to the virtual festival by filling out this form. Virtual passes will be issued just prior to the start of the festival, and then once per day after the festival has started. Students looking to attend the virtual festival are strongly encouraged to fill out the form prior to April 5 to ensure timely access to the virtual platform.
