We know you are all very anxious to know what is going on with 2012 VIP badges so we are here to tell you what the deal is. We have gotten a lot of requests in the past for some sort of lottery or loyalty system when it comes to selling the VIP badges because they go so quickly.
We have decided to go the lottery route. We have brought in a nonbiased, non-Fantastic Fester to help us with this process. They have been given a list of all the paid, industry and press badges for 2011. They will be randomly selecting 100 names off this list. If your name is selected you will have the opportunity to purchase your 2012 VIP badge prior to us putting them on sale for everyone else.
There are a total of 200 VIP badges available so assuming all 100 people claim their VIP badge there will still be an additional 100 VIP badges that will be put on sale on October 5th at 6pm. All Film badges will be going on sale at this time also.
If your name is on the list, which will be posted on our blog tomorrow, Wednesday the 28th by 5pm, you will have until October 3rd to claim your badge. You will receive an eventbrite invitation to RSVP for your badge. You MUST RSVP BY THE 3RD at midnight or your badge will go back into the pool of badges to be sold on the 5th. You can NOT transfer your badge to another person so if you don’t want it, it goes back on sale.
Once you RSVP I will contact you after the festival to orchestrate payment of the badge.
Let the games begin!
