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 Paramount Theater, State Theater, Stephen F. Austin Intercontinental Hotel, Google Fiber Space, and Alamo Drafthouse Ritz. Weekend badges will have access to (unassigned) reserved seating with 3 “Fast Passes” to be used for panels & screenings via our online program guide and reservation system for the weekend (meaning you may use all 3 in one day, 1 per day, etc, based on your choosing). **FAST PASSES guarantee you a seat to the panel/screening of your choice with our reservation system. You must be present before or by 20 MINUTES* to start time for the specified event for your reserved seat to be valid.  Weekend Badges (w/o a Fast Pass) do not guarantee entry to any single screening or panel.  More information on our FAQ page.

PLEASE NOTE: you are not GUARANTEED a Fast Pass to anything.  When the online reservation system goes live, you will have a chance to secure your pass then. All events/venues are subject to capacity, and Fast Passes are only released for 1/3 of the venue. Therefore, without a fast pass, you DO have access to panels/screenings as a badge holder once Fast Pass holders are seated.

*While Opening/Closing night events are typically not included with Weekend Badge, badgeholders WILL have access to USA’s Opening Night Screening of COMPLICATIONS and the Closing Night GILMORE GIRLS Reunion panel. Fast Pass/badgeholder procedure will be the same for these as all other events, except that Fast Pass holders for GILMORE GIRLS must arrive 30 MINUTES prior to start time for passes to be valid.


Single tickets for select Paramount  Theater and State Theater events — including A CONVERSATION WITH MARTA KAUFFMAN, the QUEER AS FOLK: 15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY, and more — are available NOW. Single tickets may be purchased HERE via the State Theater and Paramount Theater’s event calendar.

**Single tickets for Gilmore Girls are SOLD OUT.** There will be no additional advance tickets released for this event.

Single Tickets DO guarantee a seat to the event (and only the event) for which they are purchased. ALL Single Ticket events will have a maximum of TWO (2) TICKETS PER TRANSACTION, and must be picked up at Will Call with ID on the day of event. For more information about single tickets vs. badges/Fast Passes, please refer to our FAQ.


PLEASE NOTE that 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 college/university 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.
  • 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.
