Pass Holders

Your festival pass will admit you to any screening at the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film
Festival provided you follow these simple guidelines. Be at the venue at least 20
minutes prior to the show. There will be a separate line for pass holders. Please wait in that line, with your pass visible. Pass holders will be let in first. Pass holders who get to the theater later than 20 minutes prior to the show cannot be guaranteed a seat. Passes are non-transferable and non-replaceable.

The Hope Line

When advance tickets for a screening are sold out, rush tickets may be available at the theater. Some seats at every show are reserved for pass holders; however, sometimes not all those seats are used. Once we determine how many seats will be available, we release those “rush” seats for sale to people in the Hope Line. This line forms anywhere from 15 to 90 minutes before showtime.

The Not-So-Small Print

Please arrive on time. Late seating is not guaranteed. Please check your tickets for
each screening as start times vary.

SCAB and QUICKIES: SHORTS are 21 and over only screenings.

No refunds or exchanges except in the case of program cancellations.
