Tickets for the Doha Tribeca Film Festival (DTFF) will go on sale on October 16 at venues throughout the city and online at The general admission to all ticketed screenings and events is QR30. DTFF will also offer a QR10 ‘blue badge’ that entitles the holder to purchase tickets for a discounted price of QR10. Entry to all outdoor DTFF events is free, including the opening film Amelia, on presentation of a DTFF blue badge. Festival-goers who do not have a blue badge will be required to stand in line to gain admission. Free admission will be subject to availability, an official said. DTFF’s head of accreditation, Justin Kramer, said: “We’ve created a ticketing and pass system that makes it easy and inexpensive for people to buy tickets to the inaugural festival as well as participate in our free events. It’s all about accessibility.” Tickets will go on sale at the Grand Cinecentre, City Center, the Museum of Islamic Art and on the DTFF bus at venues across the city. During the festival, from October 30 to November 1, tickets will be sold at the event venues one hour ahead of performance time. Some screenings will have parental discretion advisory notes, which can be found in the DTFF film guide. A purchased blue badge entitles the holder to discounted ticket prices for all screenings and events, as well as immediate entry to free events, Kramer said. The blue badge can be bought at any festival box office between October 17 and 29, or at any free festival event between October 29 and November 1. The Doha Tribeca Film Festival was formed through a strategic partnership by HE Sheikha Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani and CEO Abdulla al-Najjar of the Qatar Museums Authority and the Tribeca Film Festival Founders, Jane Rosenthal, Craig Hatkoff, and Robert De Niro.
