Important Information about Revised Festival Ticket Purchasing Limits
As the host of the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival, the Film Society strives to maintain an “access for everyone” philosophy, as the community spirit of the 5-day Festival is what we all enjoy.
An individual membership, at any level, allows the member to purchase one ticket for him/herself and one ticket for one guest per film title. A couple membership allows the couple members to purchase two tickets for themselves and a ticket for two guests per film title. When members buy tickets for multiple friends, it limits ticket availability for other members.
Memberships help to support year-round programming. As such we depend on our members to encourage friends and relatives to become members so they may purchase their own film tickets.
To promote equal access, tickets may not be purchased for overlapping films beyond the two or four ticket allotments. Essentially this means that no more than two tickets (individual member) or four tickets (couple) may be purchased during a two hour segment.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
A separate ticket must be purchased for each film. [Please note tickets are non-refundable]
$10.00 per ticket
