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.
Pass options include the Waimea Four-Day Film Pass, which provide access to all programming January 1-4; the Four Seasons Four-Day Film Pass, which provide access to all programming January 5-9; the Waimea Six-Punch Pass; the Four Seasons Four-Punch or Four Sesaons Day Pass; and, student and contributor pass options in both locations. Festival Passes represent an exceptional value, made possible through the generous support of patrons and sponsors. Thank you to our patrons and sponsors for making the Festival possible.
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.
