2020 AACTA AWARDS PRESENTED BY FOXTEL

NOMINEE AND ATTENDEE FAQ’s

COVID-19 TICKETING POLICY

This year the 2020 AACTA Awards will be presented in a COVID-safe way, which means tickets will be extremely limited in order to comply with all Federal, state and venue health and safety rules. As such, please understand that we will only be able to offer 1 ticket per production, per nomination. The 2020 AACTA Awards presented by Foxtel will be split into two events this year in order to maximise our capacity as much as possible.

Both events will be by invitation only, with no tickets available to purchase.

More information on the format of these events, as well any additional information on the red carpet, seating and access to the events, will be released to all guests in the week prior to the event. In the meantime, should you have any questions about the event or guest management policy, please contact us at events@afi.org.au

 

NOMINEES

As stated above, nominated productions receive 1 ticket per award category. Production companies have been asked to select a representative from their team to attend the event for each nomination. If you are an AACTA nominee and your award is being presented at one of the ceremonies on Monday 30th of November and you think you should have received an invite but haven’t, please contact events@afi.org.au and we can advise the status of this.

All nominations with only 1 named nominee receive a single ticket, as per usual.
