Box Office Policy


AFI FEST 2011 presented by Audi will offer FREE tickets again this year.

In addition to complimentary tickets, a limited number of Patron Passes, Cinepasses and Special Screening Passes are available for purchase. Passes can give you admission to screenings without needing a ticket--no pre-selection of films is necessary (Galas exempted).


BOX OFFICE & TICKETING

HOW DO I GET TICKETS?
Get free tickets by registering online or in person.
  • Tickets are available online at AFI.com/AFIFEST or in-person at the AT&T Box Office at the Hollywood & Highland Center (Suite #219) from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
  • For online reservations, you will need to create a free account on our website.
  • Once registered, you can choose up to eight (8) tickets total (limit two [2] tickets per screening), including a maximum of two (2) Galas. You may only reserve eight (8) tickets in the system; this is your “account."
  • Each time you attend a screening and have your ticket scanned at the door, you will receive credit for an additional regular screening ticket in your account, which you can access at AFI.com/AFIFEST or the AT&T Box Office.
  • Holding a ticket does not guarantee a seat. Please make sure you are in the theatre at least fifteen minutes before regular screenings and half an hour before Gala films.
Please note that the 1.866.AFI.FEST phone number is for customer service inquiries and pass/patron package sales only. We look forward to seeing you at the movies!
