Passes do not provide any preferences, but they allow you to save money if you plan to attend a lot of screenings.

 

If you have not booked a ticket with a festival pass or accreditation, you can use the “happy minutes” rule. It offers a chance to take the available free seats in the hall after the ticket-holding viewers have been allowed in. Access will be granted by festival controllers at the entrance on a first-come-first-served basis. Each cinema hall will have a ‘queue start’ spot for ‘happy minutes’ visitors.
