How to Fest

Tips For Planning and Personalizing Your IFFBoston Experience.

Purchase Tickets

The main box office at the Somerville Theatre will be open starting Monday, April 24, for both pre‑fest purchases and will-call pickup. All online will-call purchases must be picked up at the box office. Lines can get very long just before show time, so please arrive early to pick up your tickets.  Or, select E-Ticket Delivery to skip the box office line entirely—just print the PDF or open it on your smartphone.

PLEASE NOTE: Tickets and badges only guarantee you a seat up until 15 minutes before show time.

If purchasing tickets for multiple screenings, you may want to consider buying a Festival Badge for priority seating to all screenings.

RUSH LINE

Just because advanced tickets are sold out doesn’t necessarily mean the film is sold out. We hold a number of seats for our badge holders, but 15 minutes before the show, we release any empty seats to the rush line. Note: All sales are final.

When does the rush line start?
We recommend lining up an hour before showtime, however anyone can start the rush line for a film simply by showing up as early as they would like.
What are my chances of getting a ticket from the rush line?
Even being first in the rush line does not necessarily guarantee you a ticket, but the closer you are to the front of the line, the better your chances of being able to get a ticket.
Can I save a seat for my friend in the rush line?
No.
How many rush line tickets can I buy?
Rush line tickets are limited to one per person.
What if I don’t like the seat I get?
All sales are final. Rush seats are often single seats scattered throughout the theatre. They tend to be in the front row.
