Depending on the credentials you get, you are granted one hour to pick a select number of films with your initial credential purchase. This year, we each got 5 tickets to choose films.

So, you create a list from the film program and then prioritize them.  And as you work your way down the list, you see if the films have sold out or not. If they have, you move on to the next one and begin to build your viewing calendar around the other major events going on at the festival that you don’t want to miss!

So here, the first 4 films we have to look forward to!
