New venues, new services

Espoo Ciné wants to make its 20th anniversary very special in many ways and has taken into account a number of audience suggestions on how we could improve our festival.

Long weekend

Longer festival, more screenings

Espoo Ciné 2009 lasts no less than ten days. Films will be screened, besides the festival centre in Tapiola, also in Leppävaara and Helsinki. This enables the much-desired re-runs of screenings. All screening times can be found in the online box office.

New methods of delivery: print your tickets at home!

In the last years, the online shop has proved to be the most popular method for purchasing tickets. Online ticket prices are discounted and the online box office opens a week before the ticket sales in the festival centre does. This year, we have two new delivery methods: tickets can be printed at home or delivered home by mail (please note that only tickets purchased until 16 Aug will be mailed home). Tickets purchased online can also be collected from the festival centre.

Print tickets at home
You can do ticket shopping as usual in our online shop. Once you have tickets in your shopping cart and you proceed to paying, you may choose the delivery method that suits you most optimally. Would you choose to print your tickets at home, they will be sent to your email as PDF files. (In order to open the files, you need Adobe Acrobat Reader). Self-printed tickets allow you immediate access to screenings. However, please note that no entrance to sold-out screenings can be granted after the screening has commenced.

Tickets home by mail (until 16 Aug)

Tickets purchased online can be ordered home by mail. This home delivery experiment is our very first and it applies to tickets purchased until 16 Aug, costing €2 per purchase (not per ticket). The 2-euro postage will be added automatically to the price of the online purchase if you choose to have your tickets delivered home by mail.
Collect tickets from festival centre

Of course, it is still possible to collect the tickets the good old way from the specific online box office pick-up counter at the Espoo Cultural Centre. Both the actual box office and the pick-up counter serve during the advance ticket sales 3–20 Aug on working days 12:00–18:00 (except Fri 7 Aug 12:00-17:00). During the festival, 21–30 Aug, they open daily 30 minutes prior to the day's first screening and remain open until the day's last screening begins. Tickets purchased online can be collected from the following day to the day of the screening in question. However, we would kindly recommend collecting the tickets no later than 15 minutes prior to the screening to avoid a rush in the office.

Priviledges with 10-ticket online purchase
A 10-ticket online purchase at once entitles you to a free festival catalogue. With a purchase larger than 20 tickets, you will receive an Espoo Ciné bag and with a 25-ticket one-time purchase, a festival T-shirt! The bonus products can be collected during the festival in the festival merchandise by presenting the purchase confirmation.
