Make the Most of Your FCFF Experience!


Here’s some tips to help you get the most out of your festival experience:

  1. Follow us on social media! We bring you the latest news and all things FCFF on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Sign up for our newsletter, if you’re more of an e-mail person!

  2. Buy your tickets beforehand. Tickets are available for online purchase now. You can bring a print out or a mobile ticket. They can also be purchased in person at the FCFF Box Office at the Wolf Performance Hall starting Oct 22nd.

  3. Get your hands on the printed Festival Program, any time leading up to the week of Oct 22-28, 2018. You can get these at your local public library, restaurants downtown, and the FCFF venues. This is your pocket access to the full schedule for films and industry sessions, locations, suggested restaurants, and more!

  4. Speaking of locations, we have 4 venues this year: Wolf Performance Hall, Museum London, the Good Theatre (Fanshawe Downtown campus), and Western Film (Main Campus). Make sure to double-check the locations of your screenings!

  5. Arrive on time! Which means, be there at least 15 minutes early to line up. Seats are on first-come-first-serve basis. We start admitting the Rush line 5 minutes before the screening time.

  6. What is a Rush line? A “Rush” lineup will be marked at each venue for audiences to buy tickets last-minute. These tickets will only be sold while you’re in line for a Sold-Out screening, about 5 minutes prior to the start time. Bring cash — rush tickets may turn out cheaper, that is if they’re available depending on the space at the screenings.

  7. You’ve won FCFF contests but don’t know what to do with your voucher? A voucher is not a ticket. Bring your voucher to the Box Office to exchange it for a physical ticket before lining up for your screening.

  8. Please note: our movies are unrated and may not be suitable for children. That being said, our special Saturday Morning program features cool animations and a feature documentary that are perfect for families!

  9. FCFF is always bustling with activity and can get a little overwhelming for first-time audiences. Find any of our amazing volunteers for help with directions, screening and ticket information, industry events, or even where to eat — they are all-knowing! Just look for bright orange t-shirts and big smiles, and you’ll be on your way to navigating the festival like a pro.

  10. Have fun! This is a once-in-a-year event and we’re super excited to be sharing our love of film with you!

The Forest City Film Festival runs from, Oct 24th to 28th, with screenings spanning 25 different programs, and Industry Sessions for emerging filmmakers from Oct 26th to 28th. We hope to see you there!
