Access to the screenings

Access is given to spectators holding tickets, accreditation passes, or festival passes, limited to available seating. Spectators holding tickets are asked to arrive at least 5 minutes before the screening begins. In order to avoid disturbing other spectators, entrance will not be allowed once the screening has begun. Spectators under the age of 18 will not be given access to the screening of films without a censor rating. Minors will be allowed to the projections only if specific indications are listed in the program alongside the film’s synopsis. Passes and tickets may not be substituted or reimbursed, except for screenings which are canceled by the organizers. Films in foreign languages are always subtitled in Italian. Subtitling in other languages is indicated for every screening in the program.

Purchasing tickets online ticket office

Tickets and full-price passes can be prepurchased at the festival’s website starting November 14 at approximately 2 p.m. Online sales will continue throughout the duration of the festival, up until 24 hours before the start of each screening. During the festival, tickets and passes which are prepurchased online must be collected at the cinema box offices during the regular opening hours, by presenting the code which was provided at the moment of purchase. It is recommended that tickets be collected at least 15 minutes before the start of the screening.

Purchasing tickets at the cinema box offices

On November 22, the Cinema Massimo and Cinema Reposi outdoor box offices will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. From November 23 – 30, the box offices will open 30 minutes before the beginning of the programming and will remain open until the start of the final screening. On the occasion of “Notte Horror,” the Cinema Massimo box office will remain open until 3:15 a.m. or until tickets to the screenings are sold out. The cinema box offices will also sell tickets and passes, both full price and reduced price. In order to purchase reduced-price tickets and passes, a document (identity card) or affiliated membership card must be presented.

Passes and accreditation passes

Screenings will be marked on the program in different colors.

White: screenings which are accessible to accreditation and pass holders, limited to available seating, by presenting one’s accreditation or pass at the entrance to the cinema.

Blue: screenings for which accreditation and pass holders must collect, free of charge, a reservation slip (blue ticket) at the totems (h24/24) and at the Cinema Reposi indoor box office (from its opening until 10 p.m.). The reservation slip must be collected between 9 a.m. of the day before the screening and 1 p.m. on the day of the screening.

Entrance to the cinema for the holders of blue tickets is guaranteed until five minutes before the beginning of the screening, after which the rush line will be activated, allowing the holders of accreditations and pass holders who do not have a blue ticket to enter the cinema, until all the seats have been filled. Anyone who doesn’t use their blue ticket three times, even non-consecutively, or enters the cinema after the rush line has been activated, will no longer be issued other blue tickets and will only be able to access the screenings through the rush line. For this reason, within 30 minutes of the start of the screening, blue tickets which have already been issued can be voided at the automatic box offices, thereby avoiding penalties. Only one ticket may be collected for each screening time slot.

Yellow – PRESS SCREENINGS: indicates the screenings reserved to accredited members of the press, at the Cinema Classico. Press accreditation passes featuring a yellow sticker will be given priority access.

The opening ceremony, followed by a screening of the film “Jojo Rabbit” on Friday, November 22, and the awards ceremony on Saturday, November 30, are by invitation only.

The program will be published on the festival’s website and at the festival venues on November 30, starting at 8:30 p.m. Access will be given to accreditation holders, holders of passes to the entire festival, and 9-19 weekly passes, and will follow the procedures for the white screenings.
