How amazing of you, of course you can! Please complete the purchase as a separate transaction from yours. Then forward the confirmation email to the person you would like. Thanks for sharing the love!
Can films or events sell out?
Yes, in some cases, we have an admissions limit, just like for an in-person festival. We recommend purchasing tickets in advance before they’re sold out.

The pass is good for a household so feel free to watch on your preferred device. However, you cannot login on two devices at the same time.
Can I share the film or event link with a friend?
You may only view the film or event once per ticket so we don't recommend sharing the link.
Couldn't I give my portal login to all my friends?
Good question. Although, we can't stop you, we'd like to remind you that the money not only goes towards producing this festival but it also supports the filmmakers and businesses that help make the festival happen.
Could I get a refund?
Unfortunately, all sales are final, tickets are nonrefundable.
