Other screenings will be held at the Bristol Public Library, the Paramount Center for the Arts, and Cumberland Square Park, and workshops for filmmakers and audience members will also be offered throughout the weekend.

There are a few different ticket options for PUSH! Film Festival. Single Screenings can only be purchased at each venue for $6 each.
