The 2020 American Black Film Festival (ABFF) offers four festival pass options, each with unique benefits. All passes allow attendees the opportunity to make a one-time payment and have access to multiple festival events, as indicated on each of the four types of pass, throughout the week.
Entry to each event/screening on the festival schedule is not guaranteed. Admission is subject to seat availability and the venue’s legal capacity. We encourage all passholders to arrive early for events and screenings.
Event (panels, conversations, seminars and parties) lines form 45 minutes prior to the start time and doors open approximately 30 minutes before events begin. Passholders with Group 1 access enter first, followed by Group 2 and then Group 3.
All passholders, regardless of pass type, have general access to Spotlight and Independent Film screenings and are admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. Lines form 45 minutes prior to the start time and doors open approximately 30 minutes before screenings begin.
Please note that festival events serving alcohol — including all parties, receptions and networking lounges — are restricted to passholders who are at least 21 years old. Master Classes admit only passholders and attendees who are at least 18 years old.
