To get to the opening and closing ceremony of the Moscow International Film Festival is quite difficult, as those wishing are very many, and the number of freely distributed tickets is limited. Therefore, it is worth taking care of their purchase in advance by going, for example, to the TicketMix website. Tickets cost from 8 to 15 thousand rubles. Take a look at the resource of a single service for delivery of tickets to the theater, concerts and shows, where you can order a treasured ticket not only to the film festival, but also to other cultural events in the capital.
If you are unable to purchase a ticket, getting to the events of the film festival will be quite problematic, as entry is strictly on tickets and invitations. There are many cases when the security of the film festival didn’t pass even very famous people, therefore “the person from the street” to expect just so to get into the society of celebrities doesn’t have to.
In addition to the main ceremonies of the festival, you can try to get to the viewing of competitive and non-competitive films. Tickets are freely sold at the box office of cinemas, but it is advisable to buy them in advance, as on the day of the screening of tickets is usually no longer available. To be fair, it’s worth noting that this only applies to foreign movies. With the films of the Russian part of the film festival program the situation is different, often enough before the start of the screening the auditorium is not full. As a result, before the beginning of the film, doors to the hall open for all comers. So if you walk up to the cinema in advance, you have a chance to get to the viewing for absolutely free.
Find out in advance exactly where the events of the film festival will take place, as in different years the venues of the main ceremonies have changed. In the future, the only venue of the Moscow International Film Festival will be the center in “Luzhniki”, it is planned to be created in the coming years.
