The Waimea Ocean Film Festival operates on a pass system. The pass system enables the Festival to organize a dynamic event that incorporates film, speakers, presentations, Breakfast Talks, exhibits and other activities. It provides the structure to allow for rich and complex content, with one aspect of the event woven together with the next. While having a Festival Pass is the ideal way to attend the Festival, and exciting, seats for films and presentations are available for individual ticket purchase 20 minutes prior to each show.
Tickets for individual program blocks are available for purchase 20 minutes prior to the start of a film or presentation block. Film and presentation blocks may include multiple films, one feature length film, or a combination of film, presentations or speakers, as shown in a single color block in the Festival Schedule.
During the event, the Festival Hospitality Desk is available to answer questions regarding passes during the festival, or you may also contact the festival office at .
