Festival Pass and Ticket Information
Salem Film Fest VIP All Access Film Pass
Help ensure the long-term sustainability of this grassroots, all-documentary cultural event, by purchasing our VIP All Access Film Pass – $100 of price is tax-deductible.
Pass provides access to all Salem Film Fest films and events at all venues.
Includes first access to seating for all films.
To ensure seating, passholders must receive a paper ticket from the SFF Box Office in Museum Place Mall for films attended at Salem venues (PEM, CinemaSalem, National Park Service). This can be done in advance, or up to 15 minutes before their screening of choice. Paper tickets not required for screenings at The Cabot or Endicott College, just show your pass for admission.
NOTE: All electronic payments will incur a $1.00 service charge, whether purchased on-line or at the SFF box office. Please be advised that SFF tickets will no longer be available at the CinemaSalem box office.
Individual admission tickets for all Salem Film Fest film presentations cost $13 for adults and $11 for seniors, students, active military and veterans. Tickets may be purchased online or at the Salem Film Fest box office, located adjacent to CinemaSalem in the Museum Place Mall hallway – hours of operation listed below.
