What can I expect when I arrive at the theater?
All Festival venues have pass holder and ticket holder holdout lines where pass holders and ticket holders wait until the theater is ready to seat. When you arrive at a festival venue, please look for a SFJFF staff member or volunteer who will direct you to the appropriate line.While waiting in line, please be considerate of our neighbors and local businesses. We remind patrons that it's now illegal to smoke while waiting in line or near entrances to venues.
All seats are general admission, and multiple seat-saving is not permitted. Select seats may be saved by the festival for filmmakers and other guests of the festival. We ask that you observe reserved seating signage by not removing signage. Please choose a seat in an unreserved section.
SFJFF believes in everyone's right to choose the restroom they are most comfortable using; please disregard any exclusionary signage that may be visible at our venues.
Please refrain from wearing perfumes and other scented products so that attendees with environmental sensitivities can comfortably enjoy the films.
Outside food and beverages are not allowed in any SFJFF venue. We ask that you respect the venue policies and purchase food and beverages from the venue's concessions stands.
I have mobility challenges. What should I do?
The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival is committed to accommodating audience members with disabilities, offering seating waiting areas and early seating as needed and wherever possible. Upon arrival at the venue, please check in with a venue manager for assistance. All screening venues have wheelchair-accessible seating and restrooms.
