PASSES

Next June marks the 21st Annual American Black Film Festival and we will be on Miami Beach for 5 days of films, panel discussions, master classes, parties and more!

If you’re wondering how you can attend the festival, no worries there is something for everyone. We have 3 package options available — the Splash Pass designed for those wishing to simply see movies and attend the career center; the Sobe Pass, which provides access to all festival events; and the Deco Pass for access to all festival events with express entry and other VIP perks.

Movie tickets and individual event tickets will be available a month prior to the start of the festival. Ticket availability will be based on the venue’s capacity. Some events will not be available for purchase.
