During the Festival, tickets are available for purchase at all screening venues. The box office opens 90 minutes before the first screening of the day at the Castro Theatre and one hour prior to the first screening of the day at all other locations. Ticket sales close at the start of the final screening of the day.
Rush tickets may be available just before showtime, and sometimes as part of the daily Noon Ticket Release. At theaters, a rush line will form outside the venue 30–60 minutes before the screening starts. Once all ticket and pass holders are seated, any empty seats will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis to those in the rush line. We offer one ticket per person waiting in line at the time of admission. Rush tickets are not available at Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA). Please be advised that not all shows at rush will have tickets released.
Day-Of Noon Ticket Release
Each day of the Festival, tickets may be released for that day’s rush screenings. Pending availability, tickets may be purchased online or in person at any open Festival Box Office starting at noon. With the exception of the Castro Theatre, the box office opens at each venue one hour prior to the first screening of the day and closes at the start of the last screening of the day. The box office opens 90 minutes before the first screening of the day at the Castro Theatre. Not all shows will have tickets released, and purchase is on a first-come, first-served basis.
COVID-19 Safety Protocols
SFFILM recognizes that public health guidelines are constantly evolving and we may update safety protocols as needed leading up to and during the festival. Your safety is our top priority and while we are working closely with the San Francisco Department of Public Health, our policies may not always align with SFDPH guidelines. Please visit our COVID-19 Policy page for the most up-to-date information.
Doors generally open 30–60 minutes prior to a film start time. Please arrive early to your screening to ensure there is ample time for you to have your proof of vaccine checked before the screening begins. Ticket or pass holders arriving fewer than 15 minutes prior to showtime cannot be guaranteed a seat, even with a ticket or a pass. No refunds or exchanges will be given to ticket or pass holders who arrive late.
The Fine Print
All orders are final. No refunds, exchanges, substitutions, or replacements will be issued.
