Buy a Badge 2015


* Badges available in limited quantities and are subject to capacity of venues.


Gain access to all SCREENINGS and all PANELS at all locations June 5-7 (Friday – Sunday).  This badge level includes panels AND screenings at the State Theatre, Stephen F. Austin Intercontinental Hotel, and Alamo Drafthouse Ritz. Weekend badges will get first entry to venues and 3 “Fast Passes” to panels & screenings via our online program guide and reservation system for the weekend (meaning you can use 3 all in one day, or 1 a day, based on your choosing). ** “Fast Pass” is just what it sounds like. A guaranteed ticket into your choice of panel/screening. PLEASE NOTE: you are not GUARANTEED a Fast Pass to anything.  When the online reservation system goes live, you will have to secure your pass then, and they are subject to capacity.  Also REMEMBER that even without a fast pass you will have access to panels/screenings, just after Fast Pass holders are seated.

ATX Television Festival will NOT be releasing Day Passes for 2015.

Single Tickets for select events may become available at a date closer to the event for panels/screenings held at the State Theater and The Paramount venues. Events with single ticket availability are TBD until closer to schedule finalization (late April, early May). Pricing & availability may vary depending on event/venue capacities.

Badgeholders will receive premium seating at these select ticketed events.

We advise attendees not to purchase badges for a single event or individual. We are a festival with an expansive range of content, and despite doing our best to prevent changes in programming, they do occur. By choosing to purchase a (non-refundable) badge for a single event or individual, you acknowledge and accept that programming is subject to change and do so at your own risk. Instead, please purchase a badge with a few series/individuals in mind, and to discover some great television!

Student/Military Discount Code:

We are happy to offer a 15% discount on Weekend Badges to any students and/or members of the military.  If you are interested & eligible, please email with a scanned copy of your ID and we will provide you with a personalized code to use upon check out. **Please note if you are purchasing more than one badge that student/military discounts are only applicable to a single badge upon checkout.


ATX Television Festival badges are NON-REFUNDABLE, and ONLY TRANSFERABLE until May 5, 2015. ** This means there will be NO NAME CHANGES past MAY 5, 2015.  We are sorry for the inconvenience, but this has to do with printing badges, and we are unable to do any changes beyond that date.  NOTE THAT NO (2) badges will be printed with the SAME name.  You CANNOT put two badges in your name.  In addition, you MUST bring your photo ID when picking up your badge.  If you would like to pick up a badge for someone else, please bring a copy of their ID and a signed letter stating that you may do so. There is a 10 badge limit to the number of badges an individual can purchase, but “name of badgeholder” must be specified at time of purchase. No duplicate badges will be printed/produced by ATX Television Festival.  At time of purchase, if you put in duplicate names (because you don’t know who you are bringing) this name change MUST happen by May 5, 2015.  After that date, only one badge will be valid.  Note: during festival you may be asked to produce identification that matches your badge as proof of person.

  • Opening Night will be June 4. Closing Night will be June 6.  Badges do not include Opening Night or Closing Night parties (and only a limited # of badges will be allowed into screenings on a first come, first serve basis).   As programming is confirmed, we will let you all know more information on securing tickets.
  • Reservations will now be known as FAST PASS(ES):  Please note weekend badges get (3) total Fast Passes for the weekend.  Day passes do no get Fast Passes.  Also remember, you are not guaranteed a Fast Pass to anything, only access to reserve one once the Online Guide goes live (which isn’t until approximately 2 weeks before the festival).
  • Children 12-17 years of age will be allowed with a badge, as long as they are accompanied by a guardian. Children 11 and younger are encouraged to attend our Saturday Morning Cartoon Breakfast presented by Hasbro for free, but may not be permitted to attend screenings/panels.
