Tickets to our screenings can be booked directly from our partner cinemas’ websites or in-venue. Tickets to our Talks and Workshops can be booked online only, this includes individual events as well as the weeklong pass. Please see below for ticketing details for each venue.

As we work with a number of cinemas across London and have limited capacity, we are not able to offer a festival pass or accreditation. However, we are mindful that booking tickets for multiple screenings over the course of the festival can become expensive and have collated the concessions and discounts available from each of our partner venues below.

If you are a student, applications are now open to take part in our student programme, which will include a free series of screenings over the course of the festival alongside filmmaker Q&As.
