How to Fest

VENUE AND DATES

The 2023 Damn These Heels Film Festival offers viewing options for everyone — in-person screenings at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City and online screenings at home or on the go. 

In-person screenings and events will take place October 12-15 and online screenings will run from October 15-22.

TICKETS AND PASSES

Tickets and passes are available to purchase online in advance or bought at the door. Please note that we ask all pass holders and reserved ticket holders to arrive 15 minutes before the advertised start time to ensure admittance and allow the Festival to sell waitlist tickets.

Tickets for films and events are on a sliding scale; please choose what to pay based on your financial circumstances. If you can afford more, it helps support the Festival and our ability to offer free or inexpensive tickets for those who otherwise could not afford to attend. Your financial support also helps us support queer filmmakers by providing a platform for their work.

Tickets and passes can be purchased in advance on our website or in-person at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center during the Festival.

Using your computer, tablet, or mobile device visit the Festival homepage and select the film or event you are interested in. You’ll be taken to our ticketing platform (Eventive) where you can purchase in-theater tickets (for the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center) and “Pre-Order” or “Unlock” access to stream films.

If you pre-reserve a ticket and can no longer use it, please contact info@damntheseheels.org to let us know, so we can release it.
