This year’s festival is entirely online running from Oct 1 – Oct 11, 2020. We have a full program of films, panels, Q&A’s, livestreams, and more.
A limited number of Early Bird Gold Passes are available for a special rate of $80.00 until Sept 7, 2020. From Sept 8 to Sept 21, the price will be $100. Regular price for gold passes will be $150.
What is a gold pass?
With a Gold Pass, viewers gain admission to all festival programming, priority access to all screenings, exclusive VIP events, and discount Gold Pass pricing at next year’s fest.
Early Bird Gold Pass sales will be available before the full program schedule for AAIFF43 has been announced.
Note: Some of our films are geoblocked to the tri-state area (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut) as part of our agreement with the respective filmmakers. A Gold Pass will not provide access to these films when watched from outside of this region. The film page and description will note whether it is geoblocked or not.

Tickets are $10.00 for a regular ticket, with discounts for the purchase of a 3-pack or 5-pack bundle. Or, you may purchase a Gold Pass for access to the all programs in the festival. For group rates, please contact us.
Just as with an in-person festival, some films or events may have a limited number of tickets available. We recommend that you purchase early to secure tickets for the films or events you most want to see before they sell out.
How to Buy
How do I purchase tickets?
Each film or event will have a link to purchase your tickets. After your purchase, you will receive an email with a link to view the film. You may purchase anytime within the dates of our festival, but you have 48 hrs from when you first press “play” to view the film. After that, the ticket expires.
How do I reserve a ticket as a pass holder?
If you are a pass holder, you must first sign into your cart to reserve tickets.
Can I purchase tickets for more than one film or event?
Yes, of course! You can add several films or events to your cart and check out at one time.
I have a promo code. Where do I enter it?
Please enter your promo code at checkout.
How do I purchase tickets for a friend or as a gift?
Please complete the purchase as a separate transaction from your tickets. After the purchase, forward the confirmation email to the person you would like.
Can online films or events sell out?
Yes, in some cases, we have an admissions limit, just like for an in-person festival. We recommend purchasing tickets in advance before they’re sold out.
Can I share the film link with a friend?
You may only view the film once per ticket and tickets may not be shared.
Can I view the film with my partner or family member who I live with?
Great question! Please consider buying a Household Ticket if you are planning to view the film with multiple persons. Normally in theaters, everyone would purchase their own individual ticket, but there is NO WAY FOR US TO STOP YOU. The screener is the same.
The money not only goes towards producing the festival – it also goes towards supporting the filmmakers, artists, and businesses that help make the festival happen.
