Tips to Sip! See! Savor the Experience!
The best way to enjoy VBWFF is to buy a Pass. Each pass grants admission to films and events. Some special events are exclusive to certain Pass levels with limited availability. Purchase your Passes now at www.VBWFF.com/passes.
Festival Passes will be available for pickup at the Festival Box Office at Riverside Theatre the week of the festival. Please allow enough time before your screening to pick up your tickets.
100% of the net proceeds benefit Suncoast Mental Health Center. Learn more about this worthwhile organization at www.VBWFF.com/suncoast.
VBWFF takes place at 10 different Vero Beach venues, some within walking distance of each other. Our main screening venues are the Theatre Guild near downtown Vero, Riverside Theatre and the Vero Beach Museum of Art.
Festival Wine Tastings
Enjoy wine tastings with friends before most film screenings. Culinary Demos and wine seminars will be held every day at the WOW! Tasting Lounge under the oaks in Riverside Park, . You can support Suncoast by purchasing wine by the bottle or the case and receive exclusive VBWFF discounts on your selections.
VBWFF will screen over 60 independent short, feature, and documentary films. Visit www.VBWFF.com/films to view movie trailers and make your film selections before the festival weekend begins.
Filmmaker Q & As
At VBWFF we’ve invited the filmmakers to attend and conduct a Q&A after their film. This is your opportunity to hear how their vision made it on to the big screen.
Pass Holder Lines for Films
There will be 3 lines for entrance to films: Priority Pass Holders, General Pass Holders and Day Pass Holders. Priority Pass Holders will be seated 30 minutes prior to the start time of each screening. General Pass holders will be seated 15 minutes prior to the start of each film followed by Day Pass holders.
To start the film on time, we must seat many people in a very short time frame. Allow plenty of time for your transportation, especially on weekend nights.
Seats cannot be held
You must be present to take a seat. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are not in your seat at show time your seat may be given to someone else.
We take movies seriously
Please silence your wrappers, voices, communication devices and alarms to ensure a quality audience experience.
