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. All screening venues have wheelchair-accessible bathrooms. At the Roxie, please ask the house manager for the key to an accessible bathroom.

    American Sign Language Interpretation

    ASL interpretation will be provided at the Festival Awards presentation at the Closing Night Party (June 28), and many introductions and post-screening Q&A sessions of subtitled films throughout the Festival. Please check here for details about ASL accessible screenings.

    ASL Assisted Screenings

    ASL interpreters have been confirmed for programs marked with the ASL logo. They will interpret both program introductions and post-screening Q&A sessions (if filmmakers are in attendance).
