Telluride Film Festival Passes
Purchasing a pass to the Telluride Film Festival grants you all weekend access to shows, activities, events, and overall a weekend packed with energy. With more than 50 shows screened at nine different venues, a passholder is sure to get the full experience from start to finish. According to passholder demand, the more popular films are repeated throughout the weekend to ensure that they are not missed.
There are a variety of options at different prices as well as volunteer opportunities and free events for people on a budget still seeking involvement in this amazing weekend. Individual tickets may be purchased ten minutes before showtime if there are seats available after passholders have been seated, and are priced at $25 dollars each. **Scroll Down for Info!**
The Cinephile Pass ($350): This pass offers the opportunity to attend unique events and programs such as classic film restorations, silents, selected new films, and admission to the Labor Day picnic.
The Acme Pass ($580): This pass provides exclusive entry to the Chuck Jones’ Cinema where you get to view a sampler program from the overall festival shoes. The Chuck Jone’s Cinema is located in Mountain Village which is accessable by one of the most beautiful modes of transportation; the free Gondola (found in town). Along with this, passholders are granted admission to two shows of choice at any of the nine in-town venues, excluding the Sheridan Opera House. Admission to the Labor Day Picnic is also part of this pass. (SOLD OUT)
The Festival Pass ($780): This pass, the Festival’s most popular, ensures quite a special experience. It provides unlimited choices to Festival programs on a first come, first seated basis. Passholders have admission to the Labor Day Picnic, can attend any cinema and any event- even those held at the historic 100 year old Sheridan Opear house said to be the jewel of Telluride.
The Patron Pass ($3,900) Includes a tax-deductible donation of $1,900
Purchasing the Patron Pass provides admission to all events and shows at all sites, including non-reserved seating at the Sheridan Opera House tributes. Patron Passholders get to enjoy priority seating at all venues and are guests of honor at the Guest/Patron brunch. They also get to attend the “Patron’s Preview,” the first screening of an important new film on Friday.
The Sponsor Pass: This is a pass issued to any who has made a major contribution to support the Festival. It grants all Patron Pass benefits listed above as well as exclusive benefits and well-deserved recognition.
The Late Show Pass ($60): This pass is a great opportunity to attend the last film at two different theaters each day. That adds up to four films for $60! Individual film tickets cost $25 each.
Festival on a Budget: Don’t be turned away by the price of passes to the festival, as it is entirely possible to enjoy the festival without emptying your wallet. While obtaining a pass ensures a hassle-free experience, we know that this is not in reach for everyone. Well, the location, the atmosphere, the overall buzzing excitement and inspiration in the air is one thing, but the variety of free events are another.
