Festival 101

What is the CIFF seating policy?

  • Ticket holders must arrive at least 20 minutes before the scheduled start of any screening for admission. Theater personnel may refuse to permit seating of late arrivals.
  • General admission seating for ticket holders, which is limited to 100 spaces per theater, is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Passholder seating is also limited to 100 spaces per theater and is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Theater personnel may refuse to permit late seating.
  • All patrons must leave the theater following each screening and take any personal belongings.
  • Seat saving between screenings is not permitted.
  • Patrons are encouraged to fill middle row seating first in order to minimize any disruption as the remainder of the audience arrives.
