Festival Passes 2022

Accessing festival screenings and events is possible only for festival pass-holders and those who purchase individual tickets to screenings. Last-minute tickets for each screening will be sold only online, subject to the availability of each event.

Those who have purchased the festival pass will receive a booking code that enables them to reserve their seats for each screening prior to or during the festival. The booking system will be activated on a dedicated website (to be announced later), starting from June 2022.

Access to the Piazza Maggiore screenings is free.

In the event that the health and safety regulation undergo substantial changes, we’ll make sure that the festival’s organisational details meet the new requirement, to ensure a pleasant and safe experience for all our attendees.
