What is the difference between the passes and tickets? When do they go on sale?
The festival has three different types of passes. The VIP Pass This exclusive pass will give you access to all festival screenings, panels, discussions, and events including access to the invitation-only Athena Film Festival Awards Reception. The All-Access Pass This pass ensures that you have priority access to all festival screenings, panels, and discussions. The pass will admit you to all films prior to individual ticket holders. The All-Access Student Pass Student passes are the equivalent of All-Access Passes, but are sold at a discounted rate to students of all ages. Tickets are sold individually for each event and do not need to be purchased by Pass holders. One ticket gives access to one event. Passes will go on sale in early December. Tickets will go on sale in January. More info can be found here: https://athenafilmfestival.com/

What if a screening is sold out?
Some films will be more in demand than others but remember the Athena Film Festival will have a rush line for each of its sold-out screenings. Rush lines will form at the box office approximately 45 minutes before the screening. Please keep in mind that admission is never guaranteed on a Rush Line, and you can only buy one ticket per person. Make sure everyone in your party is with you in line, when sales start, they are quick and we want to make sure the shows start on time.
