How Can I Purchase Tickets?

Online at sfjff.org: BROWSE THE FILM GUIDE

In-Person: Tickets are available for purchase at our Festival Box Offices located at each in-person screening venue. Festival Box Offices are open one hour prior to a venue's first show of the day and close fifteen minutes after a venue's last screening starts.

Via email or phone: Email boxoffice@sfjff.org or call the Box Office at 415.621.0568. Tickets, passes, and memberships can be purchased with the Box Office between 11am–5pm, Monday–Friday. 

I have a promo/voucher code to use.

  • Navigate to desired screening/program.
  • Click on BUY TICKETS: A pop-up window will appear—within that pop-up window, click on KNOW A PROMOTION CODE?.
  • Enter your promo/discount code and click on SUBMIT.
  • Under SELECT TICKET QUANTITY, a discounted ticket type will appear.
  • Choose the desired quantity next to the applicable discounted ticket type and "Add to Cart." Keep in mind that a ticket quantity maximum may exist associated with your promo/discount code.
  • If you are done selecting program tickets, click on CHECKOUT. If you would like to purchase tickets to additional events/screenings, click outside of the pop-up window to continue browsing the festival program.

Ticket Delivery

How do I pick up the tickets/passes I purchased?

E-Delivery/Print at Home for online purchases. Tickets will arrive as an attachment to the confirmation email you will receive upon completion of your order. You can either print the ticket attachment or present tickets your mobile device upon entry.

Films at Rush

What does it mean if a show is AT RUSH?

When advance tickets are no longer available, a limited number of rush tickets may be available at the door. Rush tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis depending on how many seats are available after passholders and advance ticket-holders are admitted. Rush tickets are normally sold 10 minutes prior to the screening. Acceptable payment methods are cash, credit card and applicable vouchers.

When should I arrive at the theater for my movie?

Ticket and pass holders must arrive at least 20 minutes prior to showtime to guarantee admission. Ticket or pass holders arriving less than 20 minutes prior to showtime cannot be guaranteed a seat, even with a ticket or a pass. Upon arrival, look for the hold-out lines marked as either Pass Holder or Ticket Holder, join the line, and wait until the theater is ready for seating.

        Membership FAQ

        I'm having trouble logging into my account.
