What’s all this about Fast Passes?

Our Fast Pass System helps you better strategize your festival game plan. Camp Badges receive five (5) Fast Passes and GP Badges receive three (3) Fast Passes. These Fast Passes allow you to jump to the front of the Badgeholder general admission line, so you can grab a great seat to a screening or panel.

Fast Pass reservations are made through the Prekindle lottery system and you’ll receive more info about the lottery process when we’re closer to the Festival. But here’s how it works – in May, you’ll have a window of time where you’ll submit eight (8) different panel or screening preferences in order of priority through the Prekindle’s selection form. The system randomly sets a selection order, and don’t worry – the time at which you submit your selections doesn’t affect your assigned Fast Passes. Fast Passes are assigned one at a time and give each Badgeholder their highest available selections.

Important note — you are only guaranteed your total quantity of Fast Passes if, and only if, you follow the guidelines and submit eight (8) different panels/screenings by the lottery deadline. If you submit less than eight different selections, you are not guaranteed all your Fast Passes. And pro tip, submitting the same piece of programming eight times in no way increases your chances of getting that Fast Pass – all eight will just count as one submission.
