Discussant Badge Benefits and Tickets to Screenings

Your Discussant Badge will allow you access to our Filmmakers & Sponsors Lounge at The Whiskey Jar, where refreshments and information on the VAFF are available at any time during the hours of operation, listed above.

You will also receive four ticket vouchers when you pick up your Badge. Each ticket voucher can be exchanged for a ticket to any regularly priced film screening, pending availability, at a VAFF box office (locations and hours can be found on our Tickets page).

We encourage you to visit the box office and select your tickets soon after you arrive in Charlottesville. Note: You do not need a ticket to any screenings or events in which you are participating.
