TICKETING

Do I need to print out the ticket I bought online or can it be scanned on my cell phone?

You can also visit any NOFF box office to have your tickets reprinted. Be prepared to show your order number, photo ID, and/or NOFS membership card.

When do online ticketing and reservations end?
Two hours before the listed start time for the film. After that, tickets can be purchased at any festival box office. Box Offices open one hour prior to showtime at each venue.

Can I get a student discount?
We have a Student Pass available for admittance to all festival screenings and the Saturday night party, with prior reservations.
Students can also purchase Buy One, Get One Free tickets for all matinee and regular screenings.

Are NOFF purchases refundable?
All sales are final, including NOFF merchandise. Passes and tickets are neither refundable nor transferable. Only in a situation that a screening is canceled by NOFF will tickets be refunded.

I’m an NOFS member. How many tickets can I reserve at the member price?
You can reserve one ticket per membership at the discounted price (two tickets for dual memberships).

What methods of payment are accepted at NOFF box offices?
Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and cash
Checks are accepted only for membership + donation with valid ID.

Why aren’t there more screenings of certain films?
Oftentimes studios and distributors limit the number of screenings and the number of tickets we can sell. If you aren’t able to secure a ticket for one of the more high-profile titles, don’t worry: the film will likely return for a regular theatrical run in our city or yours.

RUSH LINE

All empty seats will be released approximately 10 minutes prior to the screening, and will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis to those in the rush line.
There is maximum of 1 ticket per person.
Most of the time, we are able to accommodate everyone in the Rush Line.

It is worth your time to stand in line!
