In the event that all advance tickets have been sold, Standby tickets may become available for purchase. A Standby line will form at the venue, usually one hour before showtime. At approximately 10 minutes to scheduled program start, available seats are counted and sold on a first-come, first-served basis to those in the Standby line. Standby tickets are sold only to those waiting in line at the time of sale. Vouchers are valid as payment in the Standby line. SIFF Members can purchase discounted Standby tickets. Please note that not all screenings on Standby will have tickets released.


Arrive early! Ticket and pass holders must arrive 10 minutes prior to show time to guarantee admission. Ticket or pass holders arriving less than 10 minutes prior to showtime cannot be guaranteed a seat, even with a ticket or a pass. All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges will be given to ticket or pass holders turned away after this time.
