Film Festival Alliance

Monthly Archives: March 2015

In our February webinar, Tom Hall (currently at Montclair Film Festival, formerly at Sarasota, among others) walked us through the delicate balance of line wrangling, including rush ticket policies, volunteer training, etc.

Wrangling the Line: Rush Tickets, Waitlists and More

Tickets, passes, packages, VIPs and sold out screenings—making sure you maximize your audience and keep them happy is the key to a successful festival. This discussion will focus on decisions and strategies for helping you manage your lines and patrons, making sure you have smiling customers and full theaters!
