Tickets & Passes
To create the best possible screening experience the Wasatch Mountain Film Festival uses a Screening Block format for most events. This means that you purchase a ticket to an event with a curated grouping of films known as screening blocks.
If you would like to attend multiple screening blocks we also offer passes for those who want to maximize their festival experience.
