The Waimea Ocean Film Festival operates on a pass system, which enables the festival to organize a dynamic event incorporating films, speakers, Breakfast Talks and other activities, and allows for rich and complex content, with one aspect interwoven with the next. While passes are the ideal way to participate in the festival, seats are available for individual ticket purchase prior to each show.
Festival passes are available for either the Waimea portion of the event, including the Waimea Four-Day Film Pass and Waimea Six-Punch Pass, or the Four Seasons portion of the event, including the Four Seasons Four-Day Film Pass and Four Seasons Four-Punch Pass. Passes are not transferable from one set of dates to the other. Individual tickets are available for each program block 15 minutes prior to the start of each event, and can be purchased at the venue site.
