HOW DO THE BADGES WORK?

A badge is a non-transferable credential worn by the badge holder that allows the bearer certain festival privileges. VIP badge holders can secure seats at any screening at least 15 minutes prior to the start time, as well as entrance to any and all film screenings, workshops, parties, or other Festival events. Daily Wrist bands act as a VIP badge for the given day the wrist band was purchased.

WHERE DO I PICK UP MY BADGE?

Badges are available at the CFF Launch Party and at the CFF Box Office at the Carmike Majestic beginning April 6, 2017.

WHAT FILMS ARE YOU PLAYING?

We release our films in 4 waves, one for each week in March leading up to the festival. The press releases are available in our News blog and the listings of films are available on the Films section of this website as the waves are published.
