Although the Santa Barbara International Film Festival does not sell individual tickets to films on its website, tickets to individual films will be for sale for $15 five minutes before films start.

A rush ticket line will be at each venue for the last-minute available seats, according to SBIFF.

The festival sells four festival “packages” and four levels of festival passes for priority admission to films and special events. The prices range from $72 to $2,250 for various passes and packages.

Most tickets to films and individual special events range from $15 to $30.

The exception is the Maltin Modern Master Award Ceremony for Jamie Lee Curtis, for which tickets cost $97.

Individual tickets to special events such as tributes, industry panels, and opening and closing night screenings are sold on the SBIFF website, and at the door if still available. 

All tickets for films and events are general admission, and the doors open 30 minutes before the start time. 

If an event is “sold out,” there is a possibility for rush tickets, which are available for purchase only after everyone has been seated, according to SBIFF. A rush ticket line will be at each event for the last-minute available seats.
