Passes and Tickets

KCFF’17 is shaping up to be the best year yet with incredible films, larger venues and lots of popcorn.

 

We’ve expanded pass and ticketing options this year for the KCFF mega-fan and the KCFF first-timer.  With film passes, advance tickets and the last-minute rush line, you can design your festival experience to suit your movie-going style.

 

How it works

At each screening venue we have 2 lines: one for patrons with passes and tickets purchased in advance (pass-holder line) and the other for patrons who still need to buy tickets (the rush line).  We’ll start to admit the pass-holder line into the venues starting 30-40 minutes before each screening right up until showtime.  We’ll open the venue up to the rush line approximately 20 minutes before the screening until we reach capacity, cut the lights, and cue the Canadian movie.

 

Pass?  Ticket?  Rush Line?  Below you can compare and contrast all of the options to see what will work best for you!
