Passholder and Ticket Policy

Passes are non-transferable and non-refundable. Picture ID required when picking up your pass. Pass & ticket holders must arrive 30 minutes in advance to be guaranteed seating at all events.

We offer FOUR passes this year: Pegasorus, Film, Stage, and Connect. Pegasorus pass holders have access to ALL events, while other passes are specific to their own festival (FilmStage, or Connect). Note the colors on the schedule to see which events match which festival! “All-Festival Events” are cross-overs and can be accessed by all passholders. These events are noted in PURPLE on the schedule. (One exception: Cuctails Workshops are $10 online or $10 cash at the door.)

For all ticketed events, passholders do not need tickets but must bring their pass to enter events and must arrive 30 minutes in advance to be guaranteed a seat.

To attend Connect events you must have either a Pegasorus Pass, a Connect Pass, or 1-Day Connect Registration–events will not be individually ticketed.

All Ticket Package purchasers receive a unique Patron ID. Your Patron ID allows you to redeem your ticket allocation online or at any festival venue. For online ticket allocation, simply click ‘Redeem Benefits’ upon checkout.

What happens if an event at Cucalorus "sells out"?
Events at Cucalorus do NOT sell out, instead they “Go to RUSH.” The festival holds seats for Pegasorus passholders and ticket holders until 15 minutes prior to screening time. Just before the screening begins, remaining unclaimed seats are sold to the RUSH LINE. The RUSH LINE will begin forming one hour before screening time. RUSH tickets are based on the number of available seats after pass and ticket holders have been seated. Availability is not guaranteed. RUSH tickets are cash only.
Will Call

Will call tickets can be picked up from any box office location. Please bring your Patron ID to pickup will call tickets.
