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 seeking to purchase tickets at the door are encouraged to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the screening for the best chance at getting in.

Passholders have two options for gaining entry to a screening: they may reserve tickets in advance through Eventbrite, or they may show up to a screening and attempt entry.

Passholders with reserved tickets are encouraged to arrive 15 minute prior to the screening to obtain optimum seats, as tickets do not reserve specific seats.

Passholders without reserved tickets are encouraged to arrive at the venue at least 20 minutes prior to a screening to gain entry through the Passholder lines. At 10 minutes to screening, General Public queues will be admitted. At this time Passholders without reserved tickets must wait in line with the General Public, and their pass will not guarantee entry.
