How tickets work for Oxford Film Festival:

VIP Pass ($175) Priority line access, entrance into all films, parties, and green room plus entrance into special ticketed events. 

The VIP badge gives full access to all films, the green room, parties, panels and workshops. It is also provides priority line access so you get first chance at seating and first chance at claiming tickets before they go on sale. These are limited and once sold out - are sold out!

Student Pass ($50)

Same as a VIP pass but for students only! Must show valid student ID upon pickup of the pass.

5 and 10-pack tickets ($50, $100) ! 

The 5 and 10 packs replace the previous weekend and day passes to allow you to buy tickets in bulk whether for just yourself or for a group of friends.

Single Movie Ticket ($10) Good for one film.

Single tickets apply to an individual film.


  • Various screenings as announced.

  • Panels/Workshops


Are you a student or a retiree? We have a code for you to use at check out for a 16% discount on any type of ticket except the student pass. Enter code SIXTEEN at check out or if you have questions, email boxoffice@oxfordfilmfest.com to learn more. 


Did we announce a film selling out? There may still be opportunities to snag a seat with our rush line ticket. Pick up a numbered rush ticket at the box office one hour before the film. Once seating is complete (10 minutes before the film) we will release any available seats to the rush line to either use their badge to access the screen or to purchase a single ticket.


Can I buy just one ticket to one screening?
Yes, they are $10 or you can buy a 5 or 10 pack of tickets for a discount.

I want to purchase a ticket for a specific movie. How do I find it?

Log in to Eventive and click the schedule to find specific films and to buy tickets.

I really love Oxford Film Festival, how do I make a donation?

I am glad you asked - you can donate in person any time or use our website: http://oxfordfilmfest.com/sponsor

I want to transfer my passes to someone else. How do I do that?

Customers select the cog next to any event from the "My Tickets" page, click "Transfer tickets...", and then choose which tickets to transfer. An email will be sent to the desired recipient, with a button to accept the transfer. Tickets can be added to an existing Eventive account, or to an entirely new one.

Do I have to buy tickets online?
No, you can buy at the box office on site or at the Oxford Film Festival office.

Can I pay for a ticket in cash?
Yes, beginning Wednesday at noon of the festival we will have a physical box office where you can pay in cash or with a check or credit card. Before the festival you can stop by the Oxford Film Festival office Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

I bought a pass online and have an email confirmation. How do I get it?
We ask that you pick up your physical pass at our box office during the film festival. If a single ticket, just show up at your screening with your email or PDF print out and we check you in at the door using our scanners. For badge holders, no need to present tickets as your badge stores that information for you.

I lost my pass. What do I do?
Stop by our box office and let us know. We are happy to replace it for you.

How do I reserve a seat at a film?
All films are first come-first served and can be reserved in advance online. VIPs have first priority on selecting tickets before they are sold to general public. Otherwise, passholders can get in without a ticket once those with reserved tickets are seated. 

What about passholders?
VIP badges get priority seating and can reserve individual tickets in advance of public sales. If they do not get a ticket in advance, they have first priority at any remaining seats 10 minutes before a screening. 

Malco Oxford Commons is the main venue with 4 screens during the film festival.

When should I arrive for a screening?
We recommend arriving at least 20 minutes early to get in either the VIP priority line or regular ticket holder line to secure a seat. Any open seats 10 minutes before the screening are released to Rush patrons.

Do I have to stand in line?
We recommend ticket holders get in line to secure a seat. We release any empty seats 10 minutes before the screening begins. We do have a lobby for people to wait until 20 minutes before the screening and VIPs have a green room to lounge.

A film I want to see is sold out, now what?
Use our rush ticket system. One hour before a sold out screening, visit the Box Office to ask for a rush ticket. Ten minutes before the film, any open seats will be given to rush ticket holders in order. A badge holder? Go right in. Want to buy a ticket? Don’t have to until you know you have a seat and can buy at the door.

I still have questions, help?
Email us at boxoffice@oxfordfilmfest.com or during the festival visit our information table located at the box office.
