Screenings, Meetings, Receptions And More!

From the most intricate cinematic screenings and corporate presentations to world-class speaker and lectures of all genres, SIFF is the place to host your event. Our well-appointed auditoriums, lobby spaces, and classroom provide flexible environments for meetings and events, both intimate and grand.


SIFF Film Center

Our clients find the SIFF Film Center the ideal space for small to mid-sized screenings, meetings and presentations. The center features an intimate auditorium with 94 seats and state-of-the art projection and sound. The auditorium can function as a stand-alone space, or be combined with the Film Center's lobby and classroom spaces for pre or post event receptions or as "break-out" spaces during your meeting.


SIFF Cinema Uptown

The historic Uptown's three auditoriums, with raked seating, are perfectly suited for groups of 175 to 484. Supported by our skilled staff, the state-of-the-art technical equipment and systems can easily accommodate the most complex production elements, including multiple video components originating live, via satellite and/or via high-speed internet connection.

Each year, we host a variety of different corporate, industry, non-profit and community meetings, as well as private gatherings at SIFF Film Center and SIFF Cinema Uptown.

Whether you've planned hundreds of events or none at all, our experienced and customer-focused staff will assist you at every step in the process. Our staff will help you decide which of our spaces will ensure your guest's experience and event's success.
