The main festival Box Office at the Somerville Theatre opens Tuesday, April 26 (Box Office hours and details will be posted on our homepage closer to the festival). Lines can get long just before show time, so if you choose will-call ticket delivery, please arrive early to pick up your tickets.

3. SHOW SOLD OUT? CONSIDER THE RUSH LINE.

Just because advance tickets are sold out doesn’t necessarily mean the film is sold out. We hold a number of seats for our badgeholders, but 15 minutes before the show, we release any empty seats to the rush line. Look for the “RUSH LINE” signs outside of the venues.

4. PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY.

Tickets and badges only guarantee you a seat up until 15 minutes before show time. Please allow yourself enough time to get to the theatre before any empty seats are released to the rush line. All sales are final.

5. ENJOY YOUR FESTIVAL!

In addition to the films, there are also special discussions and events. Keep an eye out for more details posted on our website soon.
