Opening Night tix going fast

You can purchase Opening Night tickets in advance for $15 until Thursday afternoon. After that you can purchase at the door but you won't get the discount. For $15 you get to see the Best Narrative Film of the festival, meet the director and star of the film, and enjoy a fun reception afterwards with free appetizers and special drinks featuring Emperor's Vodka. Trust us, it's gooooood vodka.

For those of you that plan to attend Opening, Closing, and even just a couple screenings in between, the best deal by far is to get a VIP All-Access Festival Pass. The $99 pass gives you access to any/all of the 19 screenings at the festival, INCLUDING the Opening Night Film + Reception ($20 value), the Closing Night Film + Reception w/ free food/drinks (a $15 value), and VIP status for festival parties (read, schmoozing over vodka with filmmakers). As a bonus, you'll also get a free American Apparel brand festival t-shirt ($20 value) AND a free 1-year subscription to GIANT ROBOT magazine ($24 value). We've sold several passes and have a limited number left. Be our VIP today!

As a nonprofit organization, all proceeds from our ticket sales go towards making up the costs for putting together this year's program. Did you know it costs thousands of dollars just to rent a theater for a couple of hours and rent some equipment and insurance just to screen one film? Our festival is 100% volunteer staffed and run. We'll do the work but we need YOU to help us continue to bring you the films that no one else is showing-- films that are about our community, our issues, and the world we live in.

Please consider purchasing a festival pass today. We thank you for your support!
