How to purchase tickets: Since many films will sell out, we strongly encourage you to purchase your tickets in advance online. To purchase tickets online, just hover/click on the desired film program from the schedule page and click the “Buy Tickets” link which will appear beginning August 27 when tickets are on sale.
Starting September 3, you can also buy tickets and passes at the Chicago Filmmakers Box Office located at 5243 N Clark Street in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood. During the festival, walk-up tickets are available at that venue’s box office up to 2 hours before showtime.
