Be the first to hear about Badges for 2018

Badges will go on sale sometime in August.  There will be an extremely limited number of badges available. Badges will guarantee a seat at each screening time (not including any gala screenings), as long as the badge holder arrives at the theater at least 15 minutes before the screening time.  At 15 minutes, tickets will go on sale to the general public.  Late arriving badge holders will have to go to the back of the general admission line.

Be the first notified when badges go on sale.

2017 Badge Policy

  • All badgeholders are subject to the Code of Conduct.

  • Each badge guarantees the badgeholder a seat at each screening time.  For the 2017 festival, we plan on 12 screening times, showing both features and shorts.  OWA promises not to oversell the festival.  We will only sell the number of badges that we have seats available.

  • You must be in line 15 minutes prior to the beginning of each screening in order to have your seat guaranteed, and you must be wearing your badge.  All badgeholders will be sat before any individual tickets are sold.  If a badgeholder arrives after the 15-minutes-prior time, they will have to go to the end of the general admission line.  The people in the general admission line will be buying individual tickets to the screening and filling any open seat.

  • Badges are transferable but irreplaceable.  After you pick up your badge, you can give it to anyone you like.  Can't make it to a screening?  Hand your badge off to a friend.  Just be sure to get it back before you want to go to screenings again.  No badgeholder will be allowed into a screening without a badge.  If you lose your badge, or give it to a friend, or leave it at home, or if you are abducted by aliens and the only thing they take is your badge, it will still not be replaced.  We are expecting all badges to be sold out by the day the festival begins. It is unlikely that additional badges will be available for sale. Once you have received your badge, we are no longer responsible for it.   

  • Badges can only be picked up by the person designated at the time of purchase, in person.  They will not be sent via mail.  Badges will be available for pickup before our first screening on Thursday, December 7th. They will continue to be available for pickup in this location throughout the run of the festival until our final screening on Sunday, December 10th.

  • If you are purchasing the badge for another person, that person must be listed on your order.  If you are unsure of who will be using the purchased badge, please purchase it under your own name and we will write their name on it.  You can also contact our registration director Reid Lansford ( before Monday, December 2nd with a copy of the receipt and let them know the name you’d like to have on it. If you are purchasing multiple badges on one order, they must be picked up by the individual who made the order, and can be distributed to the members of your party after pickup. Badges can only be picked up by the person who purchased them.

  • All sales are final, there are no refunds or exchanges under any circumstances. Badges purchased cannot be rolled over to the 2018 OWA Festival, they are only applicable to the 2017 festival.

  • All purchasers will be added to our mailing list so you can follow any news about the festival (you can unsubscribe at any time).

  • By purchasing this badge, you and anyone receiving a badge from this order are agreeing to the above policy without exception.  In regards to all issues not expressly provided for in this policy or which require interpretation of the policy, the decisions of the Other Worlds Austin authorities or the designated representative shall be binding on all parties.
