Ticketing for our 2021 festival is now available through our Eventive site–individual films and the Film Pass.
NOTE: Kuessipan is only available for viewing in California or Oregon.
If you purchase a film pass, you will have access to all of the film screenings. Please still read below for how to reserve your spot for each virtual screening once you have purchased your pass. If you wish to purchase individual tickets for one or more films, see below.
Purchasing screening tickets or Pre-ordering screenings
Navigate via either the film guide or the schedule to each feature film. Click on “Select a Screening” in the upper right on the film page, then click on the virtual screening link. This will take you to the virtual screening page for that particular screening. If you have purchased a pass, you can click on “Pre-order” to indicate that you will watch the film when it becomes available. For pass holders, the “pre-order” is free. If you wish to purchase individual tickets, the pre-order option will take you to the sales page for that particular ticket.
Schedule and Viewing
Each feature film screening (or double screening in the case of the first two short feature films on Friday afternoon, Feb 12) becomes available at the time noted on the film guide page and the festival schedule. If you wish to participate in the online audience discussion following the film, you will need to access the film and begin watching it at the scheduled time. For more information on how we will do audience discussion, see below. However, if you are unable to watch the film at the specified time, don’t worry! For each film there is a window of time during which you must start the film. But if you need to pause and watch it later, you have up to 24 hours to finish watching the film.
*Please note that the film Kuessipan will be available only to viewers in California and Oregon, per our agreement with the film distributor.
The Eventive folks are very helpful. They have created this Audience FAQ page to help you with questions about how to watch the films from your computer, iPad, Apple TV, or other device. You can also reach out to Jeremy (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions about purchasing tickets or a pass.

Instead of a banquet…support the Common Good
Unfortunately, COVID-19 prohibits us from holding in-person events this year. Since we won’t be able to gather for a dinner and a champagne toast to celebrate this 20th year of the Common Good International Film Festival, we ask instead that you put your banquet fee to work for the common good.
In lieu of attending the banquet, we’d love for you to make a donation to the Marion Polk Food Bank in Salem, Oregon–the new home of Claremont School of Theology. Every $10 donation provides 30 meals to Oregon families in need. During this pandemic when many are unemployed or underemployed, this is just one simple way you can contribute to the common good.
Click HERE to go to the Marion Polk Food Bank website and make a donation.
Thank you for your generosity!
What makes our festival unique is the discussion that we host with the audience after each film screening. During this virtual festival, we will host online audience discussions via Zoom following each screening. As noted above, the discussions are scheduled to follow the screening if you start the film when it becomes available according to the schedule. A specific Zoom link will be provided for each film discussion, and discussion leaders will join via Zoom to host the discussion.
