Memberships support AJFF by including a tax-deductible contribution in addition to benefits such as Passes.
If you would prefer to make an outright donation and not receive benefits, please make a donation instead.

The Festival Pass provides access to all Festival events, including films and parties. Pass holders do not need to reserve any tickets. For in-person events, just show up 20 minutes before showtime, get in the Passholder line, and show your Pass for entry to any film. Or, log in to our screening portal with the same credentials you used to purchase your Membership to watch the films online. Again, no tickets required! Note that the Festival Pass does not provide access to AJFF365 events. However, a separate AJFF365 subscription is available, or consider purchasing a Membership that includes a Combo Pass, which includes BOTH a Festival Pass AND an AJFF365 subscription.
A Combo Pass includes BOTH a Festival Pass AND an AJFF365 subscription, giving you access to everything AJFF programs for a full twelve months.
For Premium, Presenter, Classic and Double Classic members, we will contact you to take care of setting up credentials for your passes, setting up your free extra tickets for guests, and so on.
Early Entry/Earliest Entry
Event sponsors and their guests who are in line for films 25 minutes before showtime are admitted before anyone else, providing them with a choice of any seats in the venue.
Members and pass holders who are in line for films 20 minutes before showtime are admitted after sponsors and before ticket holders. Late arriving members and pass holders will need to line up with ticket holders for space available entry to the event.
Guest Tickets (Presenter and Premium Memberships)
In addition to their Combo Passes, Presenter and Premium members receive four tickets for guests to attend the member’s sponsored event. Your guests should be in line at the theater 25 minutes before showtime to be admitted first-in-line, along with the sponsor, so they can choose any seat in the theater.
All members’ names will be listed on our website at the appropriate level with larger fonts used for higher level contributors. If you do not wish your name to be listed, please tell us to make this an anonymous membership.
Name On Screen (Classic, Presenter, and Premium Membership)
You will be listed on screen before each movie, in addition to being listed online. If you do not wish your name to be listed, please tell us to make this listing anonymous.
Net contribution to the Festival
This is the value of your contribution to the festival above and beyond the fair market value of the benefits you receive. That amount will be reported to Shalom Austin who will issue a tax letter before next tax season for all net contributions of $100 or more. If you intend to pay for your membership through a Donor Advised Fund, this is also the maximum amount that your fund will typically pay. The balance must be paid directly by you. Contact us if you need to make such a split payment.
