Note that since our advance tickets are virtual, you will be added to a list at the door. Bringing proof of purchase, such as your order number or email notification which you'll receive after purchase, is helpful but not required. (You will receive your pass at your first festival event.)

Doors open 30 minutes before events start, however our lounge will be open all day. During the festival please arrive at least 20 minutes before your event start time. Your pass only guarantees a seat until 20 minutes to start time, at which point your seats will be offered to customers looking for single tickets.

Note also that we stop letting folks into screenings 15 minutes after shows start so as not to cause too much distraction.

Contact Siloën at with any questions or concerns.
