Per availability, tickets are sold 45 minutes prior to show time at festival venues. RIJFF can make no guarantees of ticket availability for walk-ins.


Due to the popularity of some films, advance ticket sales may be stopped. In these cases, tickets can be purchased through the RUSH LINE at the theater on the day of that film.

About ten minutes prior to the start of the screening, if any seats are still available, those waiting in the RUSH LINE will be sold tickets to enter the theater.

The RUSH LINE begins forming approximately 45 minutes prior to the start of the film, and we may be able to start selling tickets 15 minutes prior to the start of the film.

We appreciate your patience and encourage you to purchase tickets early!
