CAN I BUY SEASON TICKETS NOW? HOW MANY KINDS ARE THERE?

HOW CAN I EXCHANGE MY SEASON TICKET?
We explain it to you on from 31st October.
DO I HAVE TO PRINT OUT THE TICKETS?
All spectators are asked to bring their tickets printed out. This is to help the public in general, the aim being to avoid queues at access points because it can happen that users have broken, blurred or scratched screens, telephones with a flat battery, etc., when there are many people waiting behind them who have to get in on time for their sessions, as once the film has begun there is no access to the cinema. Specifically, in the case of Nervión, at busy times a very large number of people have to be attended to in a matter of minutes. If for some justified cause you arrive with the entrance on your telephone, you will only be allowed into the cinema if the screen can be read clearly.
IF I AM 27 OR 60 IN DECEMBER, AM I ENTITLED TO GET A YOUNG OR SENIOR SEASON TICKET?
Yes. If you are 26 during the Festival, you fulfil the conditions for the Young season ticket. Likewise, if you are 60 in 2018, you’re eligible for a Senior season ticket.
CAN I BUY SEVERAL SEASON TICKETS AT THE SAME TIME?
You can buy as many season tickets as you wish, but they have to be acquired one by one because each one has a different reference number.
IF I’VE BOUGHT MY SEASON TICKET ON THE INTERNET, CAN I EXCHANGE MY TICKETS AT THE BOX OFFICE?
The exchange for tickets can be done both at www.festivaldesevilla.eu and at the Festival box offices.
IS THERE A LIMITED NUMBER OF SEASON TICKETS?
The organisation recommends that you acquire your season ticket before the Seville Festival begins so that you’re not left without seeing your favourite films. However, the sale of season tickets will continue once the Festival has started, until further notice.
DO I HAVE TO TAKE A PRINT OUT OF MY SEASON TICKET AS WELL AS THE ENTRANCE TICKET TO GET INTO THE CINEMA?
