All full-time enrolled, degree-seeking UVA students can reserve one complimentary ticket for most films screened during our four day annual Festival. This includes undergraduate students in any school and graduate students in any school, including Medical, Law, and Darden students; and all students enrolled in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies.
Student tickets are not transferable, and can only be used by UVA students. It is an honor code violation to give free UVA student tickets to parents or any other person who is not a UVA student.
UVA students must present their student ID at the Arts Box Office, or at the venue box office, in order to pick up their Art$ tickets. UVA students will also be required to present their student ID along with their ticket at the door for admission.
