Buying Tickets
There are several ways to buy tickets to see films at Sydney Film Festival - Flexipasses, Subscriptions, Youth Passes and single tickets. 


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! 

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.

Youth Passes 

If you're 18-24 years of age you can book a Sydney Film Festival Youth Pass. You’ll get six tickets for $72, which means each film costs you just $12. You can book up to two tickets per film session. Buy your Youth Pass here!

Single Tickets
