Tickets & Passes

 

With film passes, advance tickets and the last-minute rush line, you can design your festival experience to suit your movie-going style.
At KCFF, we keep a portion of the theatre for single tickets sold in advance (about half) and an allotment of tickets especially for pass-holders (the other half). Any remaining seats will be sold to patrons in the rush line.  We’ll open the theatre doors 40 minutes before each screening, offering those with tickets and passes the best seats in the house. Any remaining seats will be sold to the rush line starting 15 minutes before the show, until we reach capacity.

 

The thrill of the festival means that there are some titles that can be surprisingly popular and each year there is a show or two where demand simply exceeds the number of seats available. While we normally have enough room to accommodate all patrons, we recommend purchasing a ticket in advance or grabbing a pass to avoid disappointment!  We have ticket bundles and passes if you’re planning on attending a bunch of films. If you need assistance with your decision, give us a shout and we’ll chat about your options.

Generally, all patrons in the rush line attain entry but we do recommend arriving early for your best chance at getting a spot.

We’re busy lining up a number of special events again this year including live music, podcast recordings and special events. Ticket prices vary according to the specific show and are available online and in outlets.  If you buy a ticket online, simply print off your ticket and bring it with you to the show or download and display on your phone.

The fine print

> All passes and tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.

> The festival schedule is subject to change.

> For movies, KCFF reserves at least half of the seats from each venue for our pass-holders until our pass-holder allotment is reached. Pass-holders nearly always attain entry, especially when arriving on time.

> Advance ticket-holders can arrive right before show time, but the earlier you arrive, the better your choice of seats!

> Advance tickets will be honoured until the opening credits roll, after that any unclaimed seats held will be released to the rush line.

> If a venue is at capacity we are unable to admit additional patrons, including pass-holders.

> Students must show a valid student ID for rush line student rate.

> Unless otherwise specified, pass-holders must purchase a separate ticket for Special Events.
