Festival Passes

Thank you for purchasing your Full Fest and Weekend passes to this years Panic Film Festival! We wanted to reach out to everyone and update you on a few things that have changed with this years festival.


Full Fest Pass: 
You will be given access to all screenings the entire week of the festival (January 24 - 30.) There are repeat showing of nearly every film during the weekday so you can see the marquee events with special guests and not worry about missing any other films. This is a huge bonus to your value so we hope you can take advantage of it. You will also get a festival t-shirt with the purchase of our full festival pass while supplies last.


Weekend Pass:

Weekend passes will be good for all films shown during our opening weekend on January 24-26.


Single Film Tickets:
If you only want to catch a couple of films each day you can purchase tickets for a single screening. You can purchase those tickets directly from our schedule page or

Special Events

No pass includes special events or the live podcast. These tickets must be purchased separately. We suggest purchasing tickets in advance if you wish to attend our live events.

When you arrive each day you can pick which films you want tickets for that day and we can print them all out for you. This will help ensure your seat in that theatre and will help us keep track of any available seats that we can resell to people that will be waiting.
Wait Lines

For films in the smaller theaters, we will have a wait line. Ten minutes prior to that films scheduled start time we will open any available seats to anyone waiting in that line. This means even if you have a festival pass, if you do not have your ticket already, you could potentially be out that screening.

As always, outside food and drink is not allowed in the theater. We will have a rotating menu throughout the weekend to keep things fresh and give you a variety to chose from.

See you at the fest!
