TICKETING AND PASSES
(All events and screenings require either a ticket or a pass. The theatre will be cleared after each screening).
Tickets for the 2014 Festival are currently on sale at the Kimball Box Office and the Sadler Center on the William and Mary Campus, Weekdays from 11-3. You may also purchase tickets by phone through 1-800-HISTORY.
Information about tickets for our sister festival, the William and Mary French Francophone Film Festival (WM4F) can be found online at http://wm4f.wm.edu/.
General admission for most GFF screenings is $1 for all seats. Tickets to select marquee screenings will be $3 for W&M and other students (ID required if over 18) and $5 for general admission. For specific event prices, check our full schedule.
GFF VIP PASSES
The GFF sells a limited quantity of Festival Passes in four tiers (see details below). All pass-holders get free admission to all film screenings and are eligible for the W&M GFF & WM4F “Movie &….” Program.
Ten minutes prior to all sold out screenings, empty general admission seats will be made available to those waiting on the rush line. Five minutes prior to the screening, additional remaining seats will be made available. Any pass holder not in the theater five minutes prior to screen time, must join the back of the rush line (their pass will be honored if there are still seats available if/when they get to the front of the line).
All passes include special “Movie &…” deals and offers with participating restaurants in Merchant’s Square. GFF Fan and Green & Gold Passes allow VIPs to select from three off-site events: our VIP Cocktail Reception, our Saturday Night After-Party, and our Sunday Closing Reception. Passes are available for purchase in the Kimball box office.

Ten minutes prior to all sold out screenings, we will begin filling empty seats with those waiting on a rush line (see details below). Any ticket or pass holder not in the theater ten minutes prior to screen time must join the back of the rush line (his/her ticket will be honored if there are still seats available once the ticketholder gets to the front of the line).
RUSH LINE FOR SOLD OUT SHOWS
When any GFF screening becomes “sold out,” it is still possible to (and very likely that you will) get in to see the film by participating in the rush line system. Two hours before a sold out screening, a GFF staff member will distribute numbered rush line slips outside of the Kimball Theatre (only one slip per person). Rush line slip holders must then be back at the theater no later than 30 prior to screening time to line up in the order of their numbered slip. Rush line slip holders who arrive at the theater 29 minutes or less prior to screen time must join the back of the rush line. Ten minutes prior to screen time, remaining empty seats will begin to be released to those on the rush line. Rush lines tickets cost the same as regular GFF tickets ($1 for most screenings; $3 for students (w/ ID) & $5 general admission for special marquee screenings), HOWEVER, rush line tickets must be paid for in cash (exact change is much appreciated).
