Due to the overwhelming response to this year’s line-up, individual screening tickets are not available for purchase. Please visit the festival registration center located at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel in Americana 4 to purchase a Film Screenings Wait Line Wristband. This wristband will give you access to the wait line for all film screenings taking place at the Regal Cinema and Colony Theater on June 14, 15 and 16. The film screenings wait line will start 45 mins prior to the start time of the screening. Entry to screenings will be at the discretion of the ABFF Staff and will be based on the seating availability. If seats are available wait line participants will receive entry to the screening within the first 10 minutes of the film’s start time. If the screening reaches the seating capacity prior to the first 10 minutes of the film, wait line participants will not gain access to the screening. If the screening reaches capacity we encourage wait line participants to attend the next screening.
