Our Transaction Fee Policy
There are no booking fees for EIFF 2013; however, a 50p booking fee per transaction is charged for posting tickets.

High Demand
There is usually a high demand for tickets in the first week. Our box office system might get a little overloaded at times so your patience in this period is appreciated.

If a screening has sold out additional tickets may be released in the lead up to the screening/event at the venue. So it’s worth checking with the Box Office at the relevant venue on the day and you might well get lucky!
