Ticket and Pass FAQ

An All Access Pass and tickets are both ways to access films and panels at DC/DOX, but they differ in key aspects. An All Access Pass grants entry to film screenings or events, with a reservation and subject to availability, offering flexibility to attend multiple screenings or events. Reservations are embedded in a QR code on your pass. On the other hand, individual tickets are suitable for those interested in attending one or a small number of specific films or events.

A festival pass grants you priority access to all DC/DOX offerings – film screenings, panels, parties, and networking events. As long as seats remain available, you are welcome to walk into any screening or event with your pass. However, you are strongly encouraged to reserve seats in advance, as films do sell out; the All Access Pass does not provide access to screenings that are sold-out, but it does offer you priority on all standby lines. Detailed instructions on how to register and utilize your pass will be emailed to you.

Festival passes can be purchased through the festival’s website in the “Attend” section, under “Tickets and Passes.”

The All Access Pass includes priority access to: (1) all film screenings + post-screening discussions, including Opening, Closing, Centerpiece, and Spotlight. Note: passholders can reserve one ticket per screening, while seats are available, in any given time frame; (2) all “Reality Check” panels and workshops; (3) Opening and Closing Night parties; (4) priority on standby lines at all festival venues; (5) an exclusive DC/DOX tote bag.

You are able to cancel any reservation before the start of showtime, and register for anything else as long as the program is not sold out. If a program is sold out, your pass will give you priority on the standby line.

We strongly encourage you to reserve tickets in advance to any program you wish to attend. If you have not reserved in advance, you can show up to the screening venue with your pass, and as long as the program is not sold out you will be able to attend. If a program is sold out, your pass will give you priority on the standby line.

We hold standby lines at all sold-out film programs, and begin to release any available seats to the standby line 10 minutes before the program’s start time.

Passholders have priority on the standby line.

The festival pass is non-transferable and is intended solely for the person associated with the pass.

Yes, by all means. You can purchase as many passes as you wish, and designate the passes as gifts. We will require the names and email addresses of your recipients.

If you lose your festival pass, contact the festival organizers immediately via email at info@dcdoxfest.com and write “lost pass” in the subject line, or stop by the Festival’s box office and we will replace your pass for you.

You may cancel your pass or tickets for a full refund up to 72 hours before the start of the festival, Monday, June 10, 11:59pm EST–after which time passes and tickets are non-refundable. Please note: credit card processing fees are non-refundable at all times.

You can pick up your pass at either the DC/DOX Box Office located at the Eaton Workshop Hotel, between 9am-6pm during the festival, June 13-16 –or at the E-Street Cinema ticketing desk from 9am-6pm on June 14-16. See Venue page for address details. You will need to provide identification.

You can pick up passes for someone else with a letter from that recipient granting you the right to do so.
