Whether it’s a local festival or one of the brand-name events, be sure to follow these tips to get the most of your film festival experience.
With simultaneous screenings being held at multiple venues, you’re going to have to pick and choose which ones you want to see the most. With minimal time between screenings, get a map to calculate the logistics of running from theater to theater. Some festivals will have shuttles available, but be cautious of third party busses and taxis unless you can confirm the schedule/destination.
There are plenty of volunteers happy to give advice and direct you to the correct venue. You’re probably going to have to wait in line, which is a great chance to meet some fellow cinephiles, trade festival tips and hear about screenings that you missed.
Don’t Miss Out
Getting on a waitlist might grant you access to that screening everyone wants to see. Also, don’t be afraid to catch a matinee flick, which is more enjoyable if you like smaller crowds.

Get Out of the Box
