How tickets work for Oxford Film Festival:
VIP Pass ($175) Priority line access, entrance into all films, parties, and green room plus entrance into special ticketed events.
The VIP badge gives full access to all films, the green room, parties, panels and workshops. It is also provides priority line access so you get first chance at seating. Filmmakers, judges, sponsors, media, staff, board and some volunteers also have VIP access with their badges, but are provided complimentary as part of their perks. These are limited and once sold out - are sold out! The VIP pass means you don't have to claim tickets for any film in advance, just get in to the VIP seating line to grab a seat.
Kid Film Fest ($20)
To be held the weekend of the festival. It includes entrance into both days of kid workshops on Saturday and Sunday, movie screenings plus snacks and virtual reality game time.

The 5 and 10 packs allow you to buy tickets in bulk whether for just yourself or for a group of friends. This replaces the day and weekend passes.

Once seating is complete (10 minutes before the film) we will release any available seats to the rush line to either use their badge to access the screen or to purchase a single ticket.

I lost my pass. What do I do?
Stop by our box office and let us know.
How do I reserve a seat at a film?
All films are first come-first served. We pre-reserve 50% of all seats at every screening for badge holders and they get priority seating. We recommend arriving at least 20 minutes before a film to get in line for a seat.
What about passholders?
VIP badges get priority seating and do not need tickets to enter - their badge is their access.
When should I arrive for a screening?
We recommend arriving at least 20 minutes early to get in either the VIP priority line or regular ticket holder line to secure a seat. Any open seats 10 minutes before the screening are released to Rush patrons.
Do I have to stand in line?
You don’t have to stand in line if you are a badge holder unless you have a seat preference and/or want to be the first to get into the theater. We recommend ticket holders get in line to secure a seat. We release any empty seats 10 minutes before the screening begins. We do have a lobby for people to wait until 20 minutes before the screening and VIPs have a green room to lounge.
A film I want to see is sold out, now what?
Use our rush ticket system. One hour before a sold out screening, visit the Box Office to ask for a rush ticket. Ten minutes before the film, any open seats will be given to rush ticket holders in order. A badge holder? Go right in. Want to buy a ticket? Don’t have to until you know you have a seat and can buy at the door.
I still have questions, help?
