Getting/Using Your Tickets



The virtual portion of the 29th Philadelphia Film Festival will be hosted through a platform called CineSend. Badge holders will receive invites to become CineSend 'subscribers.' This will give you the ability to login, browse the PFF29 lineup, and screen films.

While how you attend the Festival is different this year, how you purchase tickets is not.

You'll purchase tickets through the PFS website, as you have in the past.

Once you purchase the tickets, you will receive two confirmation emails.

The first email will be a confirmation from PFS.

The second email will contain your screening information and your voucher code which will give you access to the film.

On your computer:

1. Click your voucher code. This will immediately redirect you to your film.
2. Visit the PFF CineSend site and type in your voucher code under "Ticket Holders."

On Roku:

1. Note your voucher code.
2. In the Philadelphia Film Festival Channel, type your voucher code in when prompted.

Just like with the traditional Festival, the number of seats available for each film is limited. The PFS suggests that badge holders prioritize their films and watch films as close to the premiere times as possible.

When you purchase a Drive-In ticket, you will receive a confirmation email with an attached PDF ticket, much like you would have to a past Festival. The PFS says to please make sure you have that email or the printed ticket ready when you arrive at the Drive-In.
