No red carpet

The real star of any film festival should be the films. It shouldn’t be countless celebrities posing for pictures on the red carpet, lavish parties for select critics that completely overshadow what’s happening on the screen, or costly admission fees that rake up receipts but severely limit a filmmaker’s chances of having an appreciative audience.

Admission to screenings is always free of charge to encourage a suitable audience of filmgoers. These intimate screenings allow festival guests to enjoy themselves even as they view challenging films, creating a welcoming and receptive environment.
