Festival Passes and Tickets


For 2021 there will be two types of passes available – an All Access 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 do not need to obtain tickets, just arrive 20 minutes before showtime and get in the special Pass-holders line. 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 and AppleTV apps, or through Chromecast or Airplay.

Passes are now on sale, as are AJFF Memberships. Memberships include passes and other 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 will be available on-site (EXCEPT for the November 2nd event), audience members are encouraged to purchase their tickets online where they will receive a $2/ticket discount automatically.

Note: Entry is not guaranteed with in-person tickets. There is a slight chance that an individual screening may be over-subscribed. Those with Festival Passes have entry priority. 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, or for a ticket to another film, or a refund. Note that special events have extra seating capacity and a low likelihood of selling out.

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