Purchase Passes

Sundance has swag, Cannes has yachts... Telluride has class.

John Horn, Los Angeles Times

The Telluride Film Festival will feature more than 50 programs screened in ten venues. The most popular films, according to passholder demand, are repeated throughout the weekend. The Festival is best experienced by purchasing one of the four passes, all of which cover the entire weekend from beginning to end and must be presented for admission to the venues and events.

Town of Telluride $1 admission Fee for Opening party and Labor Day Picnic included in pass price.

The Cinephile Pass ($390) Directed to the serious Cinephile, this pass follows a special menu of unique & often unrepeated programs, including classic film restorations, silents, Guest Director selections, selected new films and other special programs, plus admission to the Labor Day Picnic.

The Acme Pass ($580) provides exclusive admission to Chuck Jones' Cinema with a sampler program culled from the overall Festival shows. This venue is located in the Mountain Village (accessible by a free, 12-minute gondola ride from town). This pass grants admission to the Labor Day picnic, plus two shows of passholder's choice at the new venue in Town Park.
