Tickets for Escorts

At the Festival Box Office: with the purchase of a ticket and presentation of proper documentation authorizing an escort, the escort receives a ticket free of charge for that screening. Please note that later reimbursement for normal tickets is not possible.

At our WebShop: book a ticket for the escort. This ticket can be exchanged at the Festival Box Office at Filmmuseum (with the proper documentation and both tickets) for a complimentary ticket for the escort. You will be reimbursed. Should a performance be sold out there is the slight chance that through this procedure both seats could be lost.

Important Additional Information

Unless noted, all films of the FILMSCHOOLFEST MUNICH are 18+.

All films of the FILMSCHOOLFEST MUNICH are presented in the original language with English subtitles.

The specified length of a program is the combined duration of all films screened PLUS the intervening Q&As with the directors, which make the total lengths of each program considerably longer.

Ticket and Festival Pass sales are final. Tickets and Festival Passes cannot be returned once purchased.

Despite our efforts, last minute changes in the program can occasionally lead to delays, which cannot be made public in advance. We ask for your understanding should such cases arise.
To avoid disturbing others, please be on time. Theater doors close when the screening begins.

Please note that only smaller items may be taken in the venue.

Umbrellas and backpacks are not allowed.

There will be random inspections before admittance.


Recording devices prohibited

Any unauthorized recording of motion pictures screened in our theaters is illegal and will be prosecuted criminally as well as civilly. In order to avoid any misunderstandings we request that you not take any recording devices whatsoever with you into the screenings.
