We try to keep ticketing simple, but with so many venues it can get confusing. Please read the following carefully to learn about where and how to get tickets to our film screenings and Forum events, plus info on Festival and Delegate Passes.


Where to Buy Individual Tickets by

Screening  Venue

Here's where to get your tickets for film screenings presented at the following venues.

All SJIWFF30 events have general admission seating. All ticket prices include tax and surcharges. There is very limited or no free parking at our venues, besides Scotiabank Theatres (Avalon Mall). Please show up early as there will be absolutely no latecomers for all film screenings.

As per the LSPU Hall’s Box Office Policy, there will be no exchanges or refunds on ticket sales unless the performance has been cancelled.

Most films screened at SJIWFF are not yet rated and viewer discretion is strongly advised. We recommend reading about each film and researching the content matter to ensure your Festival experience is an enjoyable one.

Thank you for supporting cultural artists

50¢ from every SJIWFF30 ticket purchased from the LSPU Hall will be donated to the Cultural Artists Plan for Emergencies (CAPE) Fund, a special fund for cultural arts workers in Newfoundland and Labrador experiencing exceptional emergencies or crisis. The goal of CAPE is to build a steady revenue stream to fund as many emergency requests as possible.  


Land Acknowledgement, St. John's

We respectfully acknowledge the territory in which we gather as the ancestral homelands of the Beothuk, and the island of Newfoundland as the ancestral homelands of the Mi’kmaq and Beothuk. We would also like to recognize the Inuit of Nunatsiavut and NunatuKavut and the Innu of Nitassinan, and their ancestors, as the original people of Labrador. We strive for respectful partnerships with all the peoples of this province as we search for collective healing and true reconciliation and honour this beautiful land together.
