Castro Pass

Frameline44's Castro Pass is a convenient and flexible way to see a large selection of Frameline’s offerings in 2020 with one simple purchase. This year, the Castro Pass grants access to the majority of films presented both during the Frameline44 Pride Showcase in June, as well as during Frameline44 in the Fall.

Frameline44 Pride Showcase – more than a dozen new features, documentaries and shorts programs - will be presented online June 25 – 28, 2020. A Castro Pass grants access to most of the film programs on Frameline’s virtual platform during Pride Showcase, along with unique live and recorded introductions, Q&A’s with directors and cast, and special program enhancements. Certain Pride Showcase films, for which Frameline has been granted only a limited number of views, will not be eligible for Castro Pass holders; tickets for those films may be purchased separately (subject to availability). All titles eligible for Castro Pass holders will be announced on June 8.

Frameline44 will take place in the Fall; the scope and form of the festival (online, in-cinema or some combination) is still to be determined. The Castro Pass will grant access to the majority of Frameline44 online film titles, and/or in-person access, should we able to offer in-cinema screenings.

Castro Passes are now on sale exclusively to current Frameline members at the price of $250! Quantities are limited.
