Festival Passes and Tickets


For 2023 there will be two types of passes available – a Festival Pass, which provides access to all Festival events (including parties). The Combo Pass includes BOTH a Festival Pass and an AJFF365 subscription, giving twelve months of access to all programs AJFF produces at no further cost.

Passes are good for BOTH physical AND virtual screenings of films. For physical events Pass holders will need to obtain tickets in advance to guarantee seating. As long as you obtain a ticket (free for passholders) and show up 20 minutes before the film starts, you are guaranteed seating. Passholders may be able to obtain tickets on site IF tickets are still available. To use the Pass for online viewing, just log into our virtual portal with the same credentials you used to purchase your pass. You can easily watch festival movies on your TV using our free Roku, FireTV and AppleTV apps, or through Chromecast or Airplay.

Passes are now on sale, as are AJFF Supporterships. Supporterships benefits as well as a tax deductible contribution to AJFF.


There will be three ticket types available this year:

  1. Festival (In Person) tickets for entry to most individual festival screenings in-person only.
  2. Festival (Online) tickets for virtual access to individual festival films online only.
  3. Festival (Special Event) tickets for entry to special events such as opening and closing nights which include parties.

While tickets may be available on-site, audience members are encouraged to purchase their tickets online where they will receive a $2/ticket discount automatically.

Note: There is a slight chance that an individual screening may be over-subscribed. If a screening fills up before you are able to enter the theater, you will be offered the option of having your ticket exchanged to watch the film online (where possible), or for a ticket to another film, or a refund.

* Individual film tickets are available by clicking Get Tickets on each film’s page. See the film guide to access the film pages.
