Advance Tickets & Passes

Advance tickets and passes are available with no service charges here at We use PayPal to sell our tickets. PayPal limits buyers to $250 in purchases unless you register with them. If you do register with PayPal, please list as your referral and they will pay us $5 (hey, every little bit helps). *Using PayPal requires Netscape 4.75, Internet Explorer 5 or128 Bit Encryption loaded onto an older version. Advance tickets are also available through TicketMaster by calling 415.421.TIXS, at most Bay Area Rite Aid stores and all Tower Records. We do not mail tickets. All phone and web orders will be available for pick up at the will call table on the day of the show.

For Tickets to Individual Films

Go to the Schedule page, click on the film that you want, and look for the "Buy Now" button on that film's page. If there is no "Buy Now" button next to the screening you want to buy tickets for, that means the on-line allotment of tickets has sold out. You can try TicketMaster for tickets or arrive early at the screening to "fly stand by" for an available seat (see below).

Same Day Tickets & Passes

Same day tickets are only available at the theaters. The box office will open 30 minutes before the first show of the day and will sell tickets for that day's shows as well as advance tickets for other shows playing At That Theater Only.

Discount Passes:

The IndiePass, good for admission to all films at the Festival is $75 (less than $3 per program!). The LumierePass, good for admission to all films at the Lumiere, is only $50. The FineArtsPass, good for all films at the Fine Arts Cinema, is $25. The DigitalUndergroundPass, good for all films at Bohemia, is $25.

No Such Thing As Sold Out

If the box office or Ticketmaster has sold out their allotment of tickets for a particular show, that does not mean the show is sold out. There will very likely be tickets available at the door. These tickets will go on sale 20 minutes before showtime on a first come first served basis. Tickets are not refundable and not exchangeable. Refunds are available only if the program is canceled.
