Online orders for festival passes placed after February 11 can only be mailed by selecting the FedEx delivery option. NO PO BOX DELIVERY.
Please bring your picture ID and the credit card used for the ticket purchase to pick up your festival pass and/or tickets at the location specified on your order.

RUSH tickets for selected screenings or events may be available 20 minutes prior to start time. RUSH Tickets will be sold "First Come, First Serve" on a cash basis. If the RUSH ticket holder cannot be admitted, the purchase price will be refunded.
All ticket sales are final. If a screening/event is canceled or rescheduled, or we cannot seat you, Cinequest will exchange that ticket for another screening/event of equal or greater value at the Cinequest Box Office.
