How To Festival


To ensure the best possible Festival experience, please read the following recommendations:



THE BEST WAY TO ENJOY THE FEST: A PASS

Purchase a Festival pass. Instead of having to pick and choose which shows you want to try buying tickets to, a Festival pass grants you access to all showings and events, making the whole 5 days of the Festival a non-stop experience. If you don't have time for that commitment or there are only a few specific films you have interest in viewing, there's always the option to purchase tickets - either individually or through our package deals. That way you can still enjoy the Festival one screening or event at a time.

For more information, please check out the SFIFF Tickets and Passes FAQ
