Festival Passes 2023
GUIDE TO ATTENDING IL CINEMA RITROVATO
You can attend the festival by purchasing one of the existing types of Festival Passes. Although some passes come with certain privileges over others, any type of festival pass would give you access to festival venues and screenings for the entire duration of Il Cinema Ritrovato.
After purchasing the Pass, you’ll receive a unique code that will be needed for booking your seats in advance, subject to availability. The ticket booking system will be activated in early June. You should be able to book your favourite screenings in advance.
If you don’t have a festival pass but still want to attend some of the screenings, depending on availability, some tickets will go on sale which can be purchased online or at the Bologna Welcome, the tourist office located in Piazza Maggiore. Bologna Welcome’s opening hours are Monday to Saturday from 9:00 to 18:30 and Sundays and banks holidays from 10:00 to 16:30.
Access to the Piazza Maggiore screenings is free. However, subject to availability, the accredited festival attendees will have priority access to a reserved area in which they can claim a seat no later than 30 minutes before the start of the screening.
