DC Shorts Film Festival


What happens when a show is sold out? We will make every attempt to update this page when shows sell out. Tickets may still be available before each showcase. In the event you arrive to purchase tickets, and the show is sold out, we can offer tickets to any weekday showcase (Sunday through Wednesday) at 1/2 off $6 each.) This offer is only available at the Landmark box office on Thursday through Saturday, limit of 2 tickets per showcase per person.

Individual tickets are now on sale at the box office or online. Tickets are $12 per screening (plus $1 convenience charge is purchased online). Tickets are available on a first-come basis. As in year’s past, we expect to sell out most shows — so purchasing your tickets early is encouraged.

To purchase tickets online, visit the Schedule, and click on the “Buy Ticket” button. (Please make sure you are purchasing the correct tickets for the correct shows. There are no refunds or exchanges, and there is no switching between theaters.)

Tickets for the Free Family Showcases will be given away on:

Tickets are not necessary for the Screenplay Competition Show. We highly suggest being in line at the US Navy Memorial by 6:30pm. Tickets are not necessary for the Free Lunch Shows on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 12:00noon. Seating for these events is on a first-come basis.

Reservations for the Kelley Baker presentations can be made online.
