WHICH EVENTS REQUIRE TICKETS

 

Between 22 and 28 March — all screenings in the film programme in the Zhovten, Kyiv and Lira cinemas.

Ticket prices: 50 to 90 hryvnia depending on the screening.

Festival screenings take place between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. Each ticket gives its holder the right to take any free seat in the audience, except for those reserved by the festival. A single ticket grants access to only one visitor to each screening.

 

On the audience days, on 29 and 30 March, viewers need tickets for the screenings of festival winners and hits.

The screenings will take place in the Zhovten, Lira and Boomer cinemas and in the Kyivkinofilm network (Fakel, Kyivska Rus, Shevchenka, Leipzig, Dnipro).

In the Kyivkinofilm network and the Boomer Cinema, festival passes and accreditations are not valid. You can buy tickets for these cinemas only from their ticket windows and their websites.

Access will be granted by festival staff at the entrance on a first-come-first-served basis. Each cinema hall will have a ‘queue start’ spot for ‘happy minutes’ visitors.
