3rd I



Advance tickets, passes and vouchers can be purchased through our online vending partner, Brown Paper Tickets.  We recommend buying tickets online as some showings will sell out.

Tickets can be purchased at the theater box office, but only for showings that day.  No passes or vouchers will be available for sale at the festival. Day-of tickets are $12 per film.  We recommend that you purchase your tickets as much as an hour early and check our website for updates to save time waiting in line and disappointment in case the show sells out.


Passes are the cheapest way to see multiple films and to guarantee that you'll be able to see every film you'd like to attend. Passholders also have access to the VIP entry and get first access to seats for each film. Please note that passes are only available for purchase leading up to the festival, and will not be sold at the door during the festival. To see a list of passes, and to purchase them, please click here.  

Vouchers offer you the flexibility to choose the movies that you'd like to see and a discount for buying them in quantity. Each voucher is good for 5 showings and may be used by one person for entry to multiple films, or by multiple people for entry to one or more films. You can decide what you would like to see without having to pay the full ticket price at the door.  Vouchers are not tickets and thus must be redeemed for tickets at Will Call on the day of the showing. Be sure to arrive early to get your ticket(s) and your seat(s) as some shows will sell out. To purchase vouchers, please click here.  

Tickets are still available to all of our showings.  Plan early and get your tickets at a discount:
Early Bird ticket prices are on sale now and only $10 per ticket (base price).
Standard ticket prices will go into effect on October 28, 2011 at $11 per ticket (base price).
At-the-door tickets will cost $12 per ticket and can be purchased on the day of the screening.


You may also buy tickets to our Dance Party! @ Bollyhood Cafe (Thursday, November 10, 10 pm) or the Filmmaker Reception at the Castro Theatre (Saturday, November 12, 8-9 pm, following the screening of A Letter of Fire).  Both of the these events are a great way to get really close to all of the hot, sweaty talent at this year's festival.  Don't miss out on your chance to rub elbows with the filmmakers! More information on these events, including online ticketing, will be available on the Special Events page of our website next week.
