How much do film tickets cost?

Final 2020 prices yet to be announced, but in previous festivals the prices have been:

$15 - General public
$11 - SFF Members Click here to learn more about becoming a member. 
$10 - Students, Educators, and School Administrators (with valid ID)

Children 12 and under may attend all SFF youthFEST films for FREE. Tickets are required and may be obtained at the SFF Box Office. 

DAY OF TICKETS

Films that are close to selling out go into “DAY OF” mode, with some tickets placed on reserve for pass-holders and filmmakers. If more general public tickets can be released, they are sold at the “Day Of” price on the day of the show. To avoid paying the higher price, we encourage patrons to consider buying SFF memberships, which allow for ticket sales before the general public, exclusive discounts and a host of other benefits that can be found here.

Here are the “DAY OF” ticket prices:

REGULAR: $22/public and $16/members

MATINEE: $15/public and $11/members

SPOTLIGHT/CENTERPIECE: $30/public and $22/members

Please come to the SFF Box Office with any questions, comments or concerns, or email the box office team at boxoffice@sarasotafilmfestival.com.

What are the Box Office hours?

The Box Office hours will be announced in March 2020.

Can I volunteer at the Sarasota Film Festival? Can I earn service hours?
