Tribeca

At Tribeca, the phrase "sold out" is not in our lexicon. If the screening you want does not have any more tickets available, check out our Rush Tickets policy and try your luck!

While many Film Festivals simply close the door when tickets for a screening sell out in advance, that is not the case at Tribeca. Instead, to make each film accessible to as many movie fans as possible, Tribeca uses a Rush Tickets policy.

Here's how it works: For each screening or panel discussion that is offering Rush Tickets, a line will begin to form roughly 45 minutes before the event's start time. 15 minutes before the event begins, people on the line will be allowed to purchase Rush Tickets and get into the event, as capacity allows. Note: there is a limit of one rush ticket per person.

Rush Tickets are not discounted*, and Tribeca can't guarantee that if you're on the line, you'll be able to get in. That being said, if you show up 45 minutes in advance, your odds look all right. And let's face it--if a film's screening is limited to Rush Tickets, there's probably a reason it's so popular.

So pass the time with a magazine, catch up with friends on social media, or simply enjoy the scenery. How long is 45 minutes, anyway?

Take note: Rush Tickets will not be available for Opening Night (The Five-Year Engagement) or Closing Night (The Avengers).

The Tribeca Film Festival begins today. Check out our previously posted rundown which includes a bit about the PS22 Chorus documentary. Check out an interview with the chorus's director Gregg Breinberg at Tribeca's site where you'll also find the full schedule and links to remaining tickets.

If you have Twitter and an AMEX card, sync your AMEX and tweet #AmexFilmTFF - you can get a pair of free tix to a not bad at all selection of films.

"125 never have i seen lyrics so horribly butchered."

Forget about butchered, they just don't make sense in this context.

The film festival was a blast! I had a really fun time with my friends and the movies they selected were incredible too. I can't wait for another one this year.
