For the past few years, the American Film Institute has offered free tickets to the public for their popular AFI Fest. Tickets are now in such high demand, there's a system in place to give everyone an equal opportunity to see hot new films for free at this year's November 7 -14, 2013 AFI Fest. Beat the rush by registering online by 5 p.m. on Friday, October 18, 2013, to be assigned a time slot to select your complimentary tickets ahead of the crowds. Once the registration period is over, computers will randomly assign you a time slot to return to the AFI Fest website and choose your tickets. Click here to register for your time slot now!
Beware: only one time slot will be assigned per registrant. Time slots cannot be requested, nor can you transfer it to your favorite cineaste. Decide what your name is, and stick with it; no name changes can be made after the registration process is complete
AFI will notify you of your randomly assigned time slot on October 25, 2013. A time slot does not guarantee ticket availability, but it gives you a better chance of seeing the most desirable films. Return to AFI.com on October 22, 2013 when the Program Guide officially goes live, and start planning what you'd like to see.
Money can't buy you a time slot, but it can buy you a membership. Click here to join. You'll receive priority ticket selection between October 28 and October 29. Non-members won't receive a slot until October 30th at the earliest.
Too complicated? Click here to buy a festival package ($650 - $5,000) or pass ($225 - $325) right now. Or, you can wait until November 2, 2013, when additional complimentary tickets will become available all day, every day through Closing Night online and at the festival's box office.
Flick those fingers for free features.
