How to Festival 2023

How To Festival

The 32nd Woods Hole Film Festival will be held as a combination of in-person and virtual screenings and events. Patrons will be able to attend screenings and events both in-person July 29th – August 5th and virtually August 6th – 13th via computer, television or other electronic device, and will have a number of different pass and ticket options. Selecting the option that is best for you will depend on the Festival experience you prefer.

If you want to attend films in person…


Patrons who prefer to attend live in-person screenings, workshops and panels will have the option to purchase individual tickets and ticket packages to see any film scheduled to screen at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water Street, Woods Hole, MA; the Simon Center for the Arts at Falmouth Academy 7 Highfield Drive, Falmouth, MA, Clapp Auditorium 7 MBL Street Woods Hole, MA and the Woods Hole Community Hall, 68 Water Street, Woods Hole. Street parking is available in Woods Hole for patrons who plan to attend screenings at Redfield Auditorium and Clapp. On site parking is available for patrons who attend screenings at Falmouth Academy.

Ticket packages are on sale now and individual tickets go on sale July 1st. We highly recommend that you purchase a ticket in advance to any film you would like to see in-person because tickets sell out early and venue capacity is limited. Some films will be followed by a live Q&A with the filmmaker.

Each in-person film will screen at a specific time and venue. The screening schedule is available on the Festival website and on the Festival one-sheet. The printed one-sheet is available to pick up at the Festival office and is downloadable from the website. The schedule of in-person screenings may change both prior to and post- ticket purchase, so please check the website often for the most up-to-date information.

Questions? Email support@woodsholefilmfestival.org, call (508) 495-3456 or stop by the Box Office located at the Old Woods Hole Fire Station, Water Street, Woods Hole during the Festival from 10 am – 6 pm. During the Festival you will also be able to chat with us directly via the live chat function on the Festival website.

If you want to watch films at home…

  • Options: PASSES, TICKETS

Select films and events will be available on the Festival’s Virtual Platform for the duration of the Festival. Patrons who prefer to attend virtual screenings and events will have the option to purchase passes and tickets. A patron may purchase a festival pass and tickets to virtual screenings and events now. If you purchase a pass or virtual ticket, you will be able to log into the streaming platform and watch a film from August 6th – 13, 2023.  During the week of the Virtual Festival, you will also be able to purchase a pass or ticket to a film or event and watch it “on demand”.  Note: Virtual Passes and tickets are available to watch in the United States only. 

If you want to watch films at home AND attend live screenings…


A patron who prefers a combination of in-person and virtual screenings and events will be able to purchase a virtual pass and ticket package add-on, or individual tickets to single screenings.  If you purchase a combination pass and ticket package, we highly recommend that you select your in-person tickets to any film you would like to see in-person in advance because tickets sell out early and venue capacity is limited. Some films will be followed by a live Q&A with the filmmaker.

To purchase a virtual ticket:
Search for the film or event you would like to attend and click on select that film or event. If you don’t have an account with Elevent Ticketing you will need to register and create an account first.  After you complete your purchase, you will receive an email confirmation to the email address registered with the account.

If you can’t find the email with your ticket, you can find it in your Elevent Order History.

You need purchase only one ticket per household to watch a film. If you have multiple people in your household who will be watching, we encourage you to make a DONATION during the checkout process or any time you feel compelled. (Donations to the Woods Hole Film Festival are tax deductible.)

Once you’ve logged into your the WHFF site with your Elevent account, the member price for tickets will show up automatically and this will be your only option at check out. This is slightly different than for live events, as you will not see a separate ticket for General Admission (non-members) or any other ticket options.

Virtual Event Schedule Info

How does the schedule work for virtual films events?
Virtual screening events take place over one or more calendar days, with the film being available to view starting at a certain time (typically 8:00  a.m. ET) on the start date and ending at midnight on the end date. Ticket sales will typically end at 8:00 p.m. on the end date. (Check individual events for exact times.)

Once you begin to watch a film you will have 48 hours to finish it or until 11:59 on August 13th, whichever comes first. The link you receive to access a film is specific to your ticket and may only be accessed from one device. You will not be able to start watching on one device and finish watching on another. You will also not be able to share the link with anyone else once you have started watching it. You will be able to watch a film more than once within the 48 hour window on the same device.

What time zone is the schedule using?
All times are based on Eastern Standard/Daylight Time.
