General Ticketing Information
All ticket orders and member accreditation processed online or over the phone will be available for pick-up at the Directors Guild of America Outfest 2012 Festival Box Office (7920 Sunset Blvd) starting on July 2. Please pick up your tickets before the festival begins to avoid long lines.
You need to be in line 15 minutes prior to the start time of a program to ensure your seat. Seat saving is not allowed so every one with a ticket must be in line to get a seat. We do not guarantee late seating.
Your Outpass gets you into all regular screening programs. Outpass holders will receive hard tickets for the Opening Night Gala, Closing Night Gala and Awards Brunch.
If you hold tickets to back-to-back screenings in the same theatre, you may stay in the theatre rather than join the ticket holder line outside. Similarly, Outpass holders who wish to attend consecutive screening in the same theatre may remain in the theatre between screenings.
You can bring a picnic dinner and wine to enjoy before your screening. The Ford offers a selection of food and beverage items for sale as well, but they accept CASH ONLY and there is no ATM on site. And remember to leave enough time to park and walk up the hill. Please do note that the Ford is a cash-only venue.
For popular Outfest screenings, lines can form well in advance. While the Outfest staff and volunteers will do everything possible to minimize wait times and seat all guests as soon as possible, we do recommend arriving well in advance of each screening (a half-hour minimum).
On the day of the screening, tickets are for sale at ALL venues, subject to availability. Theater box offices open 1(one) hour prior to the first screening of the day, and ends 15 minutes after the last screening begins.
If day-of-show tickets are no longer available then rush tickets may be purchased, subject to availability. Day of show tickets are discounted for students and seniors only.
Seating is only guaranteed until 15 minutes prior to screening. No late seating.
A generous allotment of seats, at every screening, are reserved for Outpass holders. While a pass does not guarantee seating, Outppass holders are allowed priority entry up to 15 minutes before scheduled program start time. Outpass holders are strongly encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes before showtime. All Outpasses are strictly nontransferable and photo ID may be requested by theater staff.
All programs are subject to change without notice.
No refunds or exchanges are given, except in the case of program cancellations.
Film length, as listed in the program, represents the best available information at press time. Length of film does not include introductions or Q&A sessions following the screening.
Cameras, camera phones and recording devices are not permitted in the theater. Please silence all cellular phones, pagers and watches when in the theater.
No babes in arms and, with the exception of the Family Day, no children under six years old will be admitted. Please be aware that films may not be suitable for ages 18 and under.
