LOST & FOUND
Lost and Found is located in the Cotton Building. All items left at any venue will be transported to The Lost and Found, so if you leave your cell phone, your coat or your water bottle, for example, the great volunteers in the Hospitality Lounge will have it safe for you!
60 minutes before showtime: Go to the theatre where film will be shown, show your pass, and pick up a numbered ticket. This is first-come, first-served basis and guarantees you a seat. Once you have a ticket, you may leave the line until 30 minutes before showtime, at which point you will line up with other moviegoers according to your ticket number. People seem to enjoy the jostle of finding their place in the line.
30 minutes before showtime: The numbered ticketholder line moves one by one into the theatre. If you have a numbered ticket and the line has already started to move when you return to the venue, you’re still guaranteed a seat. If you can’t find your numbered place in line, you simply join at the back; you are still guaranteed a seat. Directors and Moguls - look for the theatre manager who will grant you immediate access to locate a seat of your choosing.
Latecomers: If you show up after the 30-minute deadline with your pass but don’t have a numbered ticket, or you are a Director or Mogul passholder who has not reserved a ticket, go immediately to the theatre manager to see if there’s availability. If the house is full, there will be time to get to a different venue and still get a seat for another great film.
RUSH TICKETS - $12 - When a theatre is not filled, we sell tickets for that film. Rush-ticket buyers (who have no passes) gather in the rush-ticket line. Once the passholder line starts moving, the theatre managers know exactly how many seats are available. Rush tickets are sold 10 minutes before the movie begins until the lights go down.
Our Concierge Service is for Patrons with a Director or Mogul Pass only. Meet your concierge when you pick up your pass at the Hospitality Center. You can set up your entire schedule immediately or call her throughout the weekend for personal reservation service and recommendations.
Look for a PTFF baseball hat! Every venue line has one or two CROWD LIASONS who can answer your festival questions. Managers, wearing black PTFF hats can also assist you. Information booths are located on our map on the back of the program.
