For some film fans, the ticket plans offered by the International Film Festival of Panama might be an attractive option. Film buffs planning to attend the festival, which runs from April 3 through April 9, could take advantage of a plan that will allow them to purchase tickets at a reduced price per screening and also give them an opportunity to select screening schedules before tickets are made available to the general public.
The plans offered are for the regular screenings at the Cinepolis Multiplaza, where the majority of the showings will be held but also for some shows presented at the National Theater and the Anita Villalaz Theater. The ticket packages do not include tickets for the opening or closing galas or any of the red-carpet events.
There are three basic plans giving festival-goers access to over 60 international films. Plan 1 offers eight tickets for a fee of $40; while Plan 2 has ten tickets going for $50; and Plan 3 has a fee of $60 for twelve tickets. Regular individual tickets will be priced at $6.50 with discounts available to pensioners. Shows at the Anita Villalaz Theatre will be only $4.50; while the red-carpet opening and closing nights at the National Theatre run between $20 and $50.
These special plans will only be available in advance during the week of February 17 through the 25th. The full program and schedule will be published on www.iffpanama.org starting March 1st. General-public presales go from March 17 until April 2.
Individual tickets for particular shows will be available at Ticket Plus sales points in Supermercados Rey. Customers can also go online at www.ticketplus.com.pa.
