In our ever-evolving effort to be as accessible as possible, admission to this year’s festival events is pay-what-you-can. On program pages, you will see the option to register for a Free, $5, $10, $20, or $100 ticket. Thank you for taking what you need and giving what you can. By doing so, you are helping us spread our programming to as wide an audience as possible. Our permanent policy at SFUFF is that no one will ever be turned away for lack of funds.

→By purchasing a $100 ticket, you cover the cost for one community member to attend the whole festival who does not have the resources to pay.

→ A $20 ticket covers the cost of your admission for one event.

→ A $10 ticket, $5 ticket and a No-Cost ticket are available for community members who do not have the resources to pay full price.

Please find venue-specific protocol on each program page. In general, masks are not required, but welcomed and appreciated. We’re excited to be back in person together. Please stay home if you are feeling ill.

If you have any questions, please email us.


Please find venue-specific accessibility information on each program page.

Many films include closed captioning.  Please email us us if you would like SFUFF to include closed captioning for the screening you attend. 

Although we make progress on our accessibility standards every year, we aren’t yet where we’d like to be, and we thank you for your patience. Please check out our friends at Superfest, who are leaders in film festival accessibility.
