Last Minute/Rush Line
Did we announce a film selling out? There may still be opportunities to snag a seat. This year, Oxford Film Fest is introducing the rush line ticket. Pick up a numbered rush ticket at the box office one hour before the film. Once seating is complete (10 minutes before the film), any available seats will be released to the rush line, to either use their badge to access the screen or to purchase a single ticket.
Can I buy just one ticket to one screening?
Yes, they are $12 in advance or $17 at the door.
Do I have to buy tickets online?
No, but ticket prices go up on Feb. 15 and buying online in advance, saves you money and secures your seat.
Can I pay for a ticket in cash?
Yes, beginning on Feb. 15, there will be a physical box office where you can pay in cash or with a check or credit card.
I bought a pass online. How do I get it?
Film Fest board members ask that you pick up your physical pass or ticket at the box office during the film festival.
What do I do with my pass?
Wear it and get access!
I lost my pass. What do I do?
Stop by the box office and let them know.
How do I reserve a seat at a film?
Most films are first come, first served, except for a few select screenings, for which advance tickets are sold online. 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 but select screenings must be reserved in advance.
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.
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. Empty seats will be released five minutes before the screening begins. There is a lobby for people to wait until 20 minutes before the screening.
A film I want to see is sold out, now what?
New this year is the rush ticket system. One hour before a sold out screening, visit the Box Office to ask for a rush ticket. Five 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.
I still have questions, help?
Email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or during the festival, visit the information table located at the box office.
