Festival Passes

Festival Passes

A Wanaka or Queenstown Film Festival Pass gets you a seat to all the films, speakers and workshops at that venue, but it excludes the Adventure Film School, Adventure Writing School and Wanaka’s Mountain Book Festival (July 7-9). There are a limited number and they often sell out quickly.

Festival Passes are not transferable to another person and you must wear a shower proof armband. There is a Book Festival Pass for that event also. Please note that Festival Pass holders MUST be seated 10 minutes before each session starts to guarantee themselves a seat. If you are late you are still welcome, but you may have to stand. ​
