Hygiene measures

Tickets are only available for pre-sale online, there will be no evening box office.

You have to obey the hygiene and distancing regulations and the edicts of the federal state of Hessen such as keeping your distance and following the Corona etiquettes (If you need to cough or sneeze, use a tissue or the crook of your arm – if you use a tissue, make sure you dispose of your used tissue in a bin with a lid). In any case you have to follow the directions given by the Filmfest employees.

People with Corona symptoms such as for example coughing or sniffling are not allowed to attend the festival.

Masks that cover the mouth and nose must be worn at all times during your stay at the festival, already while you are standing in line for the entrance. Only exception: After you took place on your reserved seat, you can take off your mask. But while going to get something to eat, or going to the restrooms and also while leaving the festival area, you have to wear the mask!

A distance of 1.5 m between persons must always be adhered to.

There will be catering by the Marienhof Weiterstadt on the festival ground, with vegetarian food, sausages and beverages. You can only eat and drink on your seat! Please make sure, to wear a mask all the time while moving around at the festival area. 

You can see the festival open air. Up to four people are allowed on one beer bench. Every booking will apply for one beer bench, it is not possible to book single seats first, and have another person book seats on the same beer bench. Please plan ahead wisely!

The beer benches have numbers, you are asked to go to the beer bench with your number. You cannot switch the seats not even between two persons who know eachother.

You can also see the movies in a drive-in cinema (behind the beer benches). Our employees will show you where to park, according to your entrance and the size of the car. Please follow the instructions! If you bought a ticket for the drive-in cinema, you have to watch it in your car, and you will not be able to swap to a seat on the beer bench!

The festival area will open at 8.30 pm.

There will be a free shuttle bus from Darmstadt to the festival ground and back after the event (see timetable). You have to wear a mask that covers the mouth and nose in the bus! The bus is parking close to the festival area, and in case of heavy rain will go back earlier.
