The festival reserves the right to refuse service and maintains a zero tolerance policy regarding bigotry, hate, discrimination, bullying, or harassment of any kind. The festival is committed to providing an environment that is free from discrimination and harassment where staff and guests are treated with dignity, courtesy and respect. If you are found in violation of this policy you will be asked to leave and not return.

For each screening at the Festival, a Rush Line will form at the event venue approximately 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. About 5 minutes before the scheduled start time, we will start to admit ticket-buyers from the Rush Line, based on availability inside the venue.

A few things to keep in mind: admission is never guaranteed on a Rush Line, and you can only buy one ticket per person. So make sure everyone in your party is with you in line, because when sales start, they are brisk. We want to make sure the shows start on time.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, receive a positive test, or have recently had close contact with someone with COVID-19, please stay home and self-isolate in order to ensure the safety of others. HIFF and venue safety guidelines will be regularly monitored and updated as state and local health guidelines are adjusted.

To guarantee admission, all pass-, badge-, and ticket holders must be present in line at the venue at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. We reserve the right to allow Rush access to any empty seats after that time. All seats are general admission, and all tickets are subject to availability. Saving space in line, or seats within the theater for other guests is NOT permitted. Late seating is at the discretion of the venue management team, and is not permitted 30 minutes after the start time of any screening or event. All attendees should arrive 30 to 45 minutes before the scheduled start time. For your comfort, please dress appropriately for October weather.

Founder Pass Holders’ preferred access expires 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of the screening or event. At the 15-minute mark, a red flag will appear in the admission line. It will signify that Founder Pass Holders will be seated after individual ticket holders, based on availability. It is advised that individuals should arrive 30 to 45 minutes before the scheduled start time.

Any and all audio or video recording and/or photography is strictly prohibited at the event. The use of all personal electronic devices including but not limited to cell phones, cameras, handheld recorders, MP3 devices, audio and video recording equipment is strictly prohibited at the event. The Hamptons International Film Festival will actively monitor the venue for such equipment and any person found to be using recording equipment within the venue will be ejected from the venue and may be prosecuted to the fullest extent permitted by law.

During the Festival, advance tickets are available at the Box Office and can still be purchased online and by phone based on ticket availability until approximately 30 minutes prior to a program start time.

Online and phone ticket purchasers will receive their tickets as PDFs via email, which must be printed out and shown at the door at each venue, or displayed on your phone. There will be no box offices at the venues this year.

All tickets purchased online or by phone are subject to a 15% per item surcharge in addition to a $4 processing fee per charge. Tickets purchased at the Box Office are subject to a 20% per item surcharge. All Call Center (phone) orders are subject to a $2 per order surcharge. All passes and packages are subject to a $10.00 per item fulfillment surcharge.


All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges are given, regardless of weather, traffic, or other unexpected circumstances, except in the case of program cancellations or Federal, State or Local government shutdowns or mass gathering restrictions.
