There are individual ticket links on the films and events page. There is a $2.00 per ticket service charge for tickets purchased online, except for IFC Center members, who pay no online fee for member-priced tickets.

DOC NYC offers group discounts for purchases of 10 – 50 tickets to the same screening on an as-available basis. To request a group ticket purchase, please complete and submit the Group Ticket Request form. Our ticketing team will reply to your request within 24 hours. All group sales are final.  

Steps for IFC members purchasing online:

STEP ONE
On the purchasing screen, click “Know a Promotion Code?”

STEP TWO
In the box that appears, type in your member number (the last four digits of the number under the magnetic stripe on the back of your card) and click submit.

STEP THREE
The member ticket type will appear. If you have a “Plus One” membership, the member ticket type will say “Dual Member.” Select the desired quantity of tickets and then click “Add to Cart.”

STEP FOUR
Once you have added the tickets to your shopping cart, you can either click “Continue Shopping” under the DOC NYC logo to purchase tickets to other films, or you can finish placing your order by selecting your delivery method and clicking “checkout” at the bottom of the screen. For the delivery method, we recommend selecting “E-Ticket” which will allow you to print your ticket at home or keep your tickets on your smartphone.
