Purchase Methods

Online: Daily, 24 hours

Walk-up: Daily, 12–6pm, January 27–February 23 in person at the Advance Ticket Outlet in the lobby of the Portland Art Museum’s Mark Building, 1119 SW Park Avenue.

Phone: Daily, 12–6pm, January 27–February 23, at 503-276-4310.

Day-of-Show: On the day of a screening, tickets (if still available) can be purchased at the Advance Ticket Outlet until three hours prior to showtime, then at the specific theater’s box office beginning as early as 30 minutes prior to showtime.

Payment Options

Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discovery cards are accepted at the Advance Ticket Outlet and online. For day-of-show sales, theater box offices accept cash or check only. Online and phone orders have a $1-per-ticket handling fee.

Rush Tickets

Even if advance tickets are no longer available, rush tickets are offered at each theater’s box office as soon as the number of unoccupied passholder seats has been determined—typically a few minutes before showtime. The rush line may start anywhere from 15 minutes to two hours prior to the screening.

Festival Passes

An allotment of seats is reserved at every screening for passholders. Passholders are guaranteed admission until 10 minutes prior to showtime or until the passholder allotment has been reached. Early arrival is recommended; although exceedingly rare in occurrence, passholders may not always be able to attend a film at their first choice of screening times.

Passes are available exclusively as a benefit of Silver Screen Club membership with the Northwest Film Center at the Director level and above. Get more from your PIFF experience as a member with year-round access to Northwest Film Center screenings. No more waiting in box office lines or keeping track of individual tickets! LEARN MORE.

Festival Vouchers

Please be aware that a voucher may not be used at a theater for admission. It must be redeemed—in person at the Advance Ticket Outlet—for a specific film screening at least one day in advance of the screening date, and tickets are subject to availability. You’ll know it’s a voucher because it says VOUCHER at the top, as well as THIS IS NOT A TICKET. We recommend exchanging vouchers at your earliest convenience.
