Guide to the Festival

patron courtesies

  • All seats are general admission, and multiple seat-saving is not permitted.

  • While waiting in line, please be considerate of our neighbors and local businesses. We remind patrons that it's now illegal to smoke while waiting in line or near entrances to venues.

  • Please refrain from wearing perfumes and other scented products so that attendees with environmental sensitivities can comfortably enjoy the films. Thank you.

  • Accessibility

    Frameline is committed to accommodating audience members with disabilities, offering early seating as needed. Please make yourself known to the theater house manager for assistance. All screening venues are wheelchair accessible. Assisted listening devices are available at the Rialto Cinemas Elmwood.

    ASL interpretation will be provided at the Festival Awards presentation at the Closing Night Party (June 27), and many introductions and post-screening Q&A sessions of subtitled films throughout the Festival. Please see below for details on ASL-assisted screenings.
