An evening subscription is a set program of outstanding world cinema that takes place daily (excluding Opening and Closing Night films) from after 6pm on weekdays, and after 2pm on weekends (including Public Holiday Monday).

A Flexipass 30 lets you choose most regular screenings around the festival, at up to four seats per film, so sharing with friends, family and colleagues is easy. A couple could easily see 15 films together, a ménage à trois could see 10 together, or any other combination that suits you – they are that flex-ible! A Flexipass 30 costs $360 + BF, which brings the ticket price down to $12 per ticket and saves you $225 over 30 adult tickets.

A regular Flexipass 30 buyer, Melba, explains why she chooses this way of experiencing the Festival:

“I attend at least 30 screenings at SFF each year, so purchasing a Flexipass 30 is a no-brainer for me. Aside from the obvious allure of saving $225 – more if you take into account the booking fee that individual ticket purchases attract – I enjoy the freedom the pass allows.

For instance, I usually book around 10 sessions initially, and add more as I work my way through the program. The fact that I can log in to my profile on the SFF site or on the mobile app (which is great!) and book tickets on my Flexipass without having to enter credit card details each time is a real bonus.

Booking sessions for friends and family is a breeze. The personalised schedule you can generate is invaluable; and on the odd occasion when I double-book myself, the flexibility the pass offers for amendments and cancellations is a very attractive feature indeed.”

Of course if 30 is too many for you and your friends, you can buy a Flexipass 20 for $270 + BF, bringing the price down to $13.50 per ticket – saving you $120 over 20 adult tickets.
