Check back often, as we’ll be announcing more exciting features in the days leading up to the event! Most of these will be shown twice over the weekend, on separate days, so you can pick the screening time that fits with other events, panel discussions, etc. Seating will, however, be on a first-come first served basis – unless you have a VIP ticket, which will get you access to a special block of reserved seats at each screening. Even those, however, are subject to availability… Some of these screenings are likely to be full! You have been warned!
