The online sale of Opening Night tickets will be activated at exactly 11am to ensure all users begin on equal footing. It is thus pointless to connect ahead of time.

General accreditation is 17€ and includes a complimentary catalog. Please upload and send a photo ID.

And new this year, accreditation is free for ages under 25 (without catalog) upon presentation of valid ID and available only at the ticket office of Villa Lumière, open from Tuesday through Sunday, 10am to 6pm.

Thereafter, for any purchase on site or online, make sure you have your festival accreditation card or certified e-ticket on hand to provide your accreditation number. During the ticket ordering final stage(s), you must enter your number to justify the special rate.
