Tickets can be purchased online, by phone, or at the festival box office. Tickets go on sale on the dates listed below. For your convenience during festival week, tickets to any film can be purchased or picked up at ALL indoor festival venues. Credit cards are accepted at all venues for tickets, merchandise, and concessions.
Friends of the Film Festival Ticketing: Sunday, July 12
Public Ticketing: Saturday, July 18
Stay tuned for box office location and hours information.
If a show is listed as Standby Only, a standby ticket line will form 30 minutes to an hour before each screening. We are almost always able to get most everyone in from the standby line, so we like to say: nothing is ever “sold out.”
Movies at The Buzz
Free tickets to screenings at The Buzz will be available when public ticketing begins on Saturday, July 18 at the main box office, or by calling 231-242-FILM, at 11 am, and online at 6 pm. And even if you are unable to reserve a seat in advance, standby lines will form before each show. Limit four tickets per show per person.
