To purchase an adult weekend festival pass, it will be $75. For a student or senior citizen (62+ years old) weekend pass, it will be $55. An awesome perk for the SDFF weekend pass holders is the opportunity to attend the Friday Opening Night Reception without any additional charges!
For adults, an individual ticket will be $11 per person plus a Stranger Ticketing service fee. For students and senior citizens, an individual ticket will be $8 plus service fee. To be eligible as a senior citizen, you must be 62 years old or older.
On Friday, there will be an Opening Night Reception with a nautical theme, fun photos by Valdies Czikan with fun props, and it will be only $10 each person to benefit Deaf Spotlight's ongoing programs. Free appetizers and non-alcoholic drinks will be offered at the reception. Alcoholic drink tickets will be available at the door for additional charges. The signing bartender, Lacey Pierce, will be there, too, to serve and mix awesome drinks. We encourage you to dress up in nautical-inspired clothing. There is no charge for all weekend pass holders to attend the Opening Night Reception.
Sunday's Closing Night Gathering is sponsored by Abused Deaf Women's Advocacy Services (ADWAS) to conclude the festival and is free to public.
We do not offer a group discount this time.
Each program will last around one hour and half.
Yes, there will be two panels of directors who will explain their craft and answer questions from the audience. Be sure to purchase tickets for the Documentaries Program (2-4 pm) with four filmmakers and SDFF After Dark
