CEC stands for Campus Events Commission. We are a student-run, student-funded organization, and we’re responsible for putting on free events all year long. We focus on bringing new films, great music, and cool speakers to UCLA.

I’M FORGETFUL. HOW CAN YOU REMIND ME TO COME TO THE EVENT?
1. Sign up for our weekly newsletter—we promise we won’t spam you. The newsletter goes out each Sunday and lists the upcoming events for that week.
2. Like us on Facebook. On our “events” page, you can see another list of all the events we’ve planned for the quarter.
HOW DO I GET IN TO A CEC EVENT?
Step 1. Join the Facebook event. Why? The instant we add an Eventbrite link for reservations, you’ll get a notification.
Step 2. When Eventbrite reservations are live, head over to reserve a spot.
Step 3. Try to arrive by 7:30pm. If you want the best seats, you might want to try even earlier. Nearly all our events begin at 8:00. We start letting people from the standby line in at 7:30.
DO I HAVE TO DO THIS FOR EVERY EVENT?
No. Certain speakers, concerts and all and free movies (non-sneaks, that is) don’t require reservations. They are first-come, first–serve. For those, all you need to do is show up with your Bruincard!
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FREE SNEAK AND A FREE FILM?
Free sneaks are when we show films before they’re released in theaters. You have to reserve on Eventbrite for them. Free films are when we show films after they’re released in theaters. They are usually in that phase between their theatrical run and their DVD release. There are no reservations for them, simply show up with your Bruincard.
I WASN’T ABLE TO MAKE A RESERVATION. CAN I STILL GET IN?
Yes, it’s possible. Oftentimes a few students who reserve spots aren’t able to make it, so we have standby lines for our bigger events. We usually start letting people from the standby line in at 7:30pm.
CAN I BRING MY FRIEND WHO IS NOT A UCLA STUDENT TO A FREE MOVIE SNEAK OR SPEAKING EVENT?
No, you need a Bruincard to get in.
I WANT TO BE A PART OF THE AWESOMENESS. HOW CAN I JOIN CEC?
We hire in spring quarter for programming and marketing staffs, and occasionally in winter. We will definitely make it known on Facebook/Twitter when applications come out.
