We offer you several ways to enjoy the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival. Whether it’s an Individual Advance Ticket, a Day Pass, or a full Festival Pass – it’s easy to get engaged with the work of talented emerging filmmakers from around the world. We look forward to seeing everyone August 22-25, 2019!

Opening Night Ticket: Film & Party

On Opening Night, Thursday, August 22, we will screen one of our top films at 7:00pm at Town Hall Theater. An After Party at the beautiful Swift House Inn will follow. Opening Night Tickets are $60 and include both the screening and the party. Please note that Opening Night Tickets apply only to the events that evening and cannot be used during the remainder of the Festival.

Festival Pass

MNFF Festival Passes will be in limited supply for MNFF5. Fest Passes can be purchased for $85. Beginning August 1, the Fest Pass price will be $95. See as many films as you want with a Festival Pass, at any venue on any day of the Festival: Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Festival Pass holders will be seated first at all screenings. No seats are reserved but your place will be held until 10 minutes before show time. Festival Pass holders will also be entitled to attend the multiple parties being held over the three main screening days of the event. IMPORTANT NOTE: The Festival Pass does not include admission to the Opening Night Film & Party. That event requires an Opening Night Ticket.

FYI: Festival Passes are also available for $85 with some of our lodging partners through July 31. Please check when making reservations.

Day Pass

For $35, buy a Day Pass and see as many films as you want at any venue on any single day of your choosing, either Friday or Saturday or Sunday of the Festival. Day Pass holders receive priority seating following the seating of all Festival Pass holders. No seats are reserved but your place will be held until 10 minutes before show time.

MNFF attendees can buy Individual Advance Tickets to any feature film during the Festival. Thanks to our partners at FilmFreeway, you can purchase an individual ticket in advance of the Festival for $15. The Individual Advance Ticket sales window will be open August 5-25, 2019, with no restrictions on how many can be purchased. However, quantities of tickets available at each venue are limited so be sure to move quickly. Individual Advance Ticket holders will be seated along with Day Pass holders beginning 10 minutes prior to screening, following the seating of Festival Pass holders.
