Festival and Off-Programme Passes

How can I buy my festival pass?

Go to My LFŠ (first-time visitors need to register first) and select your preferred festival pass, accommodation or a ticket to accompanying programme.

The selected items will be reserved for 90 minutes. Please proceed according to the instructions. You can choose to pay via credit card or wire transfer. Online payments allow for immediate confirmation and are therefore highly recommended.

Wire transfer payments must be received within three working days or at least three days prior to the beginning of the festival. Payments from abroad can only be made via credit card.

What are festival passes?

Festival passes allow access to any film screening (but come in time, there are no seat reservations). They allow prior access to the festival’s public programme and free access to galleries and museums.

Festival pass holders get discounts to accompanying events (concerts, theatre performances etc.) and in the selected shops and restaurants.
Off-Programme passes only allow access to accompanying or expert programme.

All prices are listed here. For purchasing passes go to My LFŠ or visit the SFS Festival Centre.

What discounts can I get?

Discounts are available for students and teachers (we accept ISIC, ITIC, ALIVE, and EYCA cards or a study confirmation paper), for members of film clubs (AČFK or ASFK cards), for employees of Czech Television, disabled persons, and 60+ seniors. The latter ones can confirm their age upon receipt at the ticket office.

Accommodation and Accessibility

Are there any age restrictions at the festival?

All 15 and 18 rated films are labelled in our daily programme. All other screenings are suitable to anyone over 6 with a valid ticket or festival pass.

Children under 6 are not allowed to the screening rooms. There is a special programme for kids in the park, full of workshops, fairy tales and theatres.

All screening rooms are barrier-free.

Can I visit the festival without a festival pass?

There is free entry to some of the accompanying events (e.g. open-air cinemas). Based on our discussions with the Regional Hygiene Office in Zlín and the town of Uherské Hradiště in 2020, we decided to tighten up our entry restrictions and allow entry only to the registered visitors. Therefore, a new type of the festival pass was introduced. An Off-Programme Pass allows access to expert and accompanying programme in Smetana’s Park and to open-air cinemas, Mír Club, Museum of Moravian Slovakia, Gallery of Moravian Slovakia and Rochus Park. With the Off-Programme Pass you can also buy discounted tickets to theatres and concerts. The Off-Programme Pass costs you only 50 CZK per a day.

Can I bring a dog?

No animals are allowed to the festival screening rooms or accommodation facilities offered via My LFŠ.


Is it possible to buy a ticket or reserve a seat for a particular film screening?

No such thing is possible at the SFS. Please try to always come in time to get a seat.
