Buying tickets

Save With a Flexipass!

Flexipasses are a great way to experience Sydney Film Festival at all venues, including the sumptuous surrounds of the State Theatre, at a substantial discount. Better still, you can share the experience with up to three other guests each time you attend, or just keep it all to yourself! 

Flexipasses for 2017 are on sale now.

The cheapest way to book lots of tickets is to buy a Flexipass 10, 20 or 30. See more films and save up to $200 on single ticket prices. Use tickets one at a time or all at once and share them with friends and family.

One lucky punter who has purchased their Flexipass on or before Friday 17 February will be upgraded to the next tier, getting an extra 10 tickets. Winner announced Thursday 23 February.
