Screening Sessions

When will the booking space be available?

On our website:
From Tuesday, August 17th at 6.00pm, you can book your screenings for free : your sessions in Lille and your sessions in other regions.

How can I attend the screening sessions?

All screening sessions, meetings and conferences are free. Reservation is not mandatory but gives you priority over spectators without tickets.

There are three ways to attend the sessions:
1 – You do not have a ticket: all our sessions are accessible at the last minute. You need to go to the reception 20 minutes before the screening. First people arrived will be first people to enter !
2 – You have a ticke : You need to come at the latest 20 minutes before the screening begins, with your ticket (printed or downloaded on your phone) in the line ” WITH TIKET “.
3 – You have a Pass SERIES MANIA : You need to come with your pass no later than 10 minutes before screening begins in the line ” WITH PASS”.

Being in advance is the surest way to get access to the session: Having a Pass or a ticket can not guarantee a spot to the screening, the access is being done within the limits of available spots.

To avoid any disturbance to the audience, the entrance to the room is not allowed once the screening started.

How many tickets can I book?

For each reservation, according to the scheduled session, it is possible to withdraw 2 seats by screenig, with a maximum of 3 sessions per day.

How can I cancel my reservation?
