Delegate Guide to SJIWFF30
Welcome to SJIWFF30! Whether you are joining us from away or right here at home we are so excited to welcome you to this year's festival!
We've created a Delegate Newsletter to help you easily navigate this year's Festival. We'll roll out email updates every morning, including details about the day's screenings, special events, and any unexpected changes. Sign up for the SJIWFF30 Delegate Newsletter.
Our main Box Office is the LSPU Hall, which will also host most of our film screenings and happy hours during the week! Just up the hill from the Alt Hotel, head there to book and pick up screening tickets, plus watch some fantastic films. Please visit and carefully read our 2019 Festival Schedule and Box Office page for full details including rush line policies.
Welcoming Industry Leaders from around the world
All local and visiting Delegates must register at our Industry Hub at the Alt Hotel (Violet Creative Lounge). Delegate bags, which include your Delegate Pass (needed for all events and to obtain tickets), will be waiting for you at this location.
Delegate Registration Hours:
October 16-19 from 9:00am - 4:00pm + October 20 from 9:00am - 12:00pm
You cannot register for another Delegate or pick up bags on their behalf.
HOW TO USE YOUR DELEGATE PASS TO GET SCREENING TICKETS
Your Delegate Pass is NOT a film screening ticket. Tickets may be reserved in advance through the LSPU Hall Box Office by phone or in-person. Tickets must remain at the box office until the day of the screening. Please let the LSPU Hall Box Office know if you require an accessible seat.
IMPORTANT: All Delegate Passholder tickets (and all complimentary screening tickets) must be picked up at least a half-hour before start time. All tickets remaining a half-hour prior to showtime will be released to the rush line for the public to purchase.
Delegate Passes are valid to claim rush line tickets for free, but passholders will not be given priority (first come, first served). There will be absolutely no latecomers for all screenings. Read more about our tickets here.
Delegate Passes DO NOT include admission to the Opening and Closing night screenings or the MUN Cinema screening. These tickets must be purchased separately. You can present your Pass on the day at The Rooms, subject to capacity.
HOW TO USE YOUR DELEGATE PASS TO GET FORUM TICKETS
All Film Industry Forum events at the Alt Hotel are free, subject to capacity. Seating is limited. Doors open 30 minutes prior.
All lunch panels must be booked in advance, and tickets are NOT available at the door.
Opening & Closing
If you have RSVP’d directly with us to Opening and Closing, your tickets are only available for pickup at the SJIWFF Box Office table outside Scotiabank Theatres on the day of the event starting 5:30pm on October 16 and 6pm on October 20.
Any tickets not picked up by 6:45pm will be released to the public for sale.
