There are three tiers of passes – they are, in descending order of access: Gallatin Peak, Hyalite Peak  and Bridger Peak Passes

Each pass offers tiered levels of access to films, events and parties throughout the Festival.

Bridger Peak Pass
Free entrance to film screenings on a first-come, first –serve basis, following the Gallatin and Hyalite Peak Passholders. Bridger Peak Passholders may participate in the Opening Day Main Street Event, and are entitled free admission to the Award Ceremony on Sunday. Bridger Peak Passholders will be entitled to restaurant and community promotions as organized through BZN.

Hyalite Peak Pass
All entitlements of Bridger Peak Pass, as well as priority access to the available seats at screenings ahead of Bridger Pass holders. Passholders are also invited to the Opening Night catered reception and film.

Gallatin Peak Pass
Entitlement to everything included in the Bridger Pass and Hyalite Pass, as well as guaranteed seating at any screening before admission of Hyalite and Bridger Passholders. Gallatin Peak Passholders will be invited to two special VIP receptions held in the evening at the prestigious Old Main Gallery on Friday and Saturday for lite bites and libations with featured artist. Friday, June 8 will feature the work of Kevin Red Star, and Saturday, June 9 will feature the photography of Louise Johns, who will also attend the event. Gallatin Peak Passholders are also invited to attend Breakfast with the Filmmakers Brunch at the Rialto Theater.


Tickets will be sold in person at select sites throughout Bozeman and MSU. Please visit the ticket page in May for more information.


There will be four tiers of access to films; the three Passholder lanes, and a General Public lane. General Public must arrive at the theatre having already purchased a ticket at one of the ticket sale points on MSU campus or in downtown Bozeman (locations will be announced in May). These tickets are good for any one screening so will not list the name of the film they seek to attend. Those holding single tickets are encouraged to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the screening for the best chance at getting in.

Passholders are granted free entry to all screenings, but seating is not guaranteed due to space constraints. Passholders are encouraged to arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes before screentime to secure a space in the theatre. Passes do not reserve specific seats.

At 10 minutes to screening, General Public queues will be admitted (tickets must be pre-purchased at the Ticket sites at MSU campus and in downtown Bozeman). At this time Passholders must wait in line with the General Public, and their pass will not guarantee entry if space does not allow.
