Is there a better way to allocate free tickets?

There has been numerous feedback over the years on the ticket allocation system employed by the festival. This system has been repeatedly use so as to give everyone who is keen to watch, an opportunity to collect tickets. We thank everyone for their feedback, and do accept that no system is perfect. As we continue to improve to make it a fair for everyone, some of the commonly raised questions include:

Why don't you sell tickets to the free-admission programme?
answer: These films are provided to the festival for cultural purposes and not for commercial use. Hence tickets cannot be sold.

Why don't you implement a booking system?
answer: A booking system without a form of payment is prone to abuse, and may deprive others of tickets which were collected but will not be used for various reasons.

Instead of issuing all tickets before the start of the first session of the day, why don't you only issue tickets prior to the start of each film session?
answer: The festival tries to screen as many films as possible, hence we might end a film 15 min before the next film. A person watching the film before the next session may not be able collect the tickets for the next film if he or she intends to watch it as well.
