for Ticket Buyers & 6-Pack Punch Card Holders

What's a Q?

  • Queues are a numbered card system that holds your place in line to purchase tickets and reduces your wait time

How Does it Work?

  • 60 MINS prior to showtime go to film venue and grab a Q (max of 2 per person)

  • Return to venue at least 20 MINS prior to showtime and line up according to number

  • 15 MINS prior to showtime, based on seats available, we will start selling tickets

Who Needs a Q? And do I have to get a Q?

  • Qs are for anyone purchasing tickets at the door or 6-Pack Punch Card holders

  • They are not necessary for Passholders

  • You do not technically need a Q but it increases your chance of getting into the film and reduces your wait time in line

  • Anyone without a Q can simply get in line beyond the Q holders

When Can I Get a Q?

  • Q Stations OPEN exactly 60 MINS prior to showtime - not before

Important Notes:

  • Having a Q does NOT guarantee admission to a film, just a place in line

  • Please RETURN Q at the door (we reuse them)

  • If you picked up a Q but didn’t use it - please return it to the venue as soon as possible

  • If it looks like the show will sell out, volunteers will help direct you to another film/theatre where there is a better chance you’ll get in

How do I purchase a pass or tickets during the festival? Can I do this online?

  • During the fest, online purchasing will not be available and Festival Passes need to be purchased in person at our Box Office at Artisan Rug Gallery.

  • You may, however, purchase a 6-Pack Punch Card at the Box Office or at any of our screening venues.

  • Individual tickets can not be purchased in advance, they are only available at the door of the film screening you wish to attend. Please read about our Q System above.

I have already purchased passes or a 6-Pack - how do I pick these up?

  • If you have already purchased a Festival Pass or a 6-Pack Punch Card, please pick it up at the Box Office
