Tickets Available June 8
Experience films and conversations that spark your curiosity and challenge your worldview. Starting on June 8, you will have the opportunity to buy tickets (or “unlocks”) to individual films, programs, events and special presentations at this year’s AFI DOCS. New films and events will be scheduled each day of the festival, with captivating conversations and Q&As with the filmmakers following nearly every film.
Films and events are available for a limited time and with limited capacity due to restrictions from film distributors and filmmakers – and they can sell out. We strongly recommend purchasing “unlocks” to films and events you want to attend before the festival begins on June 22.

Individual films and programs will be available for $10 to unlock.
Special Presentations will be available for $15 to unlock.*
AFI DOCS FORUM

Starting on June 8, be sure to reserve your spot for the films and events you want to enjoy!
