For guaranteed access to programs, passholders must reserve tickets on the festival schedule. You must wear your pass to be admitted into the venue. Please arrive at the theater at least 30 minutes before the start of the program. For the uninterrupted enjoyment of all, theater staff will not grant access to a program once it starts. *If you don’t arrive at least 30 minutes in advance, you may lose your seat reservation as we will begin loading our standby ticket line.
If you change your mind and want to attend a different program, you may cancel your existing reservation and create a new reservation up to two hours prior to the start of a program (pending availability). Passholders without a reservation must queue in the standby line for admission.
Once passholders in the standby line have been seated, public (non-passholders) will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. Program ticket pricing TBD. Credit cards only. Theater staff will keep a close eye on capacities and will turn people away in the standby line if they have no chance of getting in.

Amid the talks, walks, films and presentations, there are many events — so many that you could string together an entire itinerary without purchasing a pass, getting your yearly dose of inspiration, even if you don’t have a lanyard.
Our full schedule of festival events and programs will be announced mid-May 2023.
An array of official Mountainfilm apparel and gear is available at Bootdoctors, located at 236 S. Oak St. This is also where you can purchase Mountainfilm posters.
