Seats cannot be held

You must be present to take a seat. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Remember your coat

All lines are outdoors so please dress accordingly (hat, coat, gloves)! The Festival attracts hundreds of people, so don’t be surprised if the lines are long and extend outside the theater.

Filmmaker Q&As

In an effort to make the Festival a more interactive experience we encourage the filmmakers to attend and conduct a Q&A after the film. This is your opportunity to ask them your questions about the making of the film.

Arrive Early

To start the film on time, we must seat many people in a very short timeframe. Allow plenty of time for your transportation, especially on weekend nights.

Children are (sometimes) welcome

Not all Festival films are intended for “all audiences,” and few have MPAA ratings attached – audience discretion is advised. As a general rule, children are encouraged to attend only designated films.

We Start on time 

Screenings start within five minutes of the scheduled time. However, the Festival cannot be held accountable for late starts.

We take movies seriously

Please silence your wrappers, voices, communication devices and alarms to ensure a quality audience experience.

Volunteer Staff

Most of the venues are staffed by volunteers who can answer many of your questions. They help make the Festival possible by donating their time so please be patient, and don’t forget to thank them for their efforts.

Festival News

Screenings, events, and guest updates are posted and announced regularly at the Box Office, online on Facebook, Instagram, and our website RedNationFF.com
