All screenings for Film Fest 2016 take place at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, located at 160 South Scott Ave. The building, which was completed in 1916 is still in use by the local Masonic order for meetings and events. We’ve transformed three of the building’s lodge meeting rooms into state-of-the-art screening venues to show films. The building’s main lobby is now also a lounge, the perfect place to meet friends before a screening or to stay after and talk about the film you’ve just seen. Our exclusive VIP lounge for filmmakers, sponsors and pass holders only is on the 3rd floor of the building in the fabulous Egyptian Room.
Parking in downtown Tucson is available at parking structures and on the street. After 5pm all street parking is free. Garages are located at Pennington between Congress and 6th Ave. and at La Placita garage, located on Jackson between Stone Ave. and Church Ave. Only sponsors and VIP special guests of the film festival will be able to park at the Scottish Rite due to limited space.
Advance tickets can be purchased online at FIlmFestTucson.com. All advance tickets are $10 ($11.34 with service fee). All major credit cards are accepted. Festival passes are also available in advance for $150 ($156.24 with service fee), which grants access to ALL screenings as well as the VIP lounge.
Day-of tickets do not have a service fee and can be bought at the venue starting 90 minutes prior to each day’s first showtime,( i.e 5:30pm on Thursday and Friday, 12:30pm on Saturday & Sunday).
Arrive Early & Stay After
Ticket and pass holders are advised to arrive 15 minutes prior to showtime to guarantee admission. Ticket and pass holders arriving less than 15 minutes prior to showtime cannot be guaranteed a seat, even with a ticket or pass. All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges will be given to ticket or pass holders turned away after this time.
Film Fest Tucson was created for you, Local Tucsonans and visitors alike who love great storytelling, beautiful films and conversation about both. We’ve created this festival because we believe there are more stories to be told and by sharing this festival with other important Tucson arts and culture entities we all benefit. We hope you will continue to support film all year long and we’ll see you next fall for the 2nd Film Fest Tucson.
