Advanced Ticketing Starts Tuesday

If you bought a festival pass, a daytime pass, or one or more 10-film packages, then starting Tuesday, August 28 at 9:00 AM you can pick up your Advanced Order Book, the festival schedule, and the programme book (if you bought one). These can be picked up at the Festival Box Office at College Park, 444 Yonge Street (at Yonge and College), south entrance, market level. The Festival Box Office is open from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM for August 28 to 31. As mentioned in an earlier post, you don't have to show up right at 9:00 AM, as there is no advantage to getting your picks in first; the festival operates on a lottery system rather than first-come-first-served.

Note you must go the Festival Box Office to pick up your order book; you *cannot* go to any of the other box offices. Be sure to bring along the vouchers that you should have already received in the mail. You will need an Envelope Voucher to get your Advanced Order Book, and optionally a 2007 Programme Book Pick Up Voucher for the programme book if you bought one (note that you don't need one to complete the ordering process). The vouchers should be labelled clearly enough, but if you can't figure out which one to use, bring them all and the festival staff will take the appropriate ones from you.

Don't forget to also pick up the free festival schedule. You will need this to figure out when each movie is playing.

Your completed Advanced Order Book must be returned before Friday, August 31 at 1:00 PM. If you turn it in after that time, you will not be included in the advanced ticket lottery.


Have you been able to get the website to keep your films added to MYLIST?

I think they were late in getting the site up and it sure doesn't work as well as last year's website.

Less eye-candy and better code would be appreciated. (It's especially a problem for us out-of-town festival goers.)

I can't get the list to work at all! I log in, attempt to add the films, and it seems successful. But when I try to access the list I get this:

You don't have any films in your list - Conversion from type 'DBNull' to type 'String' is not valid.

I was getting that same type of error message at first, but it seems to be keeping my films now. I tried in both IE7 and Firefox 2.
