The FEST Pass is the best way to attend AFI FEST 2022! With screenings at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in Los Angeles, CA, the  FEST Pass gives you access to reserve six (6) tickets from our program of 125 screenings (excluding Red Carpet Premieres). Passholders also receive priority entry into any of their reserved screenings and FREE Rush Line entry to any screening, including Red Carpet Premieres, subject to seating availability.

The FEST pass allows you to select up to six (6) tickets total for any of our screenings (excluding Red Carpet Premieres) with priority entry to all of your reserved screenings. You are welcome to use all six of your allotted tickets for one screening, split them between six different screenings, or a combination of the two.

Please note: every person attending a screening must have a ticket to enter any theater. A pass alone does not grant entry to a screening, and passholders must reserve tickets in advance. Passholders must have their pass (with preselected tickets linked to their pass) with them at the theater or have printed tickets or eTickets on their phone.

Passholders with AFI memberships at the Star Level or above may begin making their ticket selections on Thursday, October 6 at 11:00 a.m. PT. Non-member passholders may begin making their ticket selections on Friday, October 7 at 11:00 a.m. PT.

All attendees must be seated in the theater 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of the screening, or your seat may be forfeited.

At any point up to two hours before a screening, passholders may cancel a ticket reservation and receive a credit back to their pass which they can redeem for another screening.

Passes and tickets do not guarantee admission. Passes are non-transferable. No refunds or exchanges. All films are not rated and viewer discretion is advised.
