How To Buy Your Tickets
Showroom Box Office

Explore the ShAFF website What's On pages for detailed info with links from each session to buy tickets. 

Adventure films vary from two minute shorts to feature length films so we group films into themed sessions of about 90 minutes. We repeat some sessions, but not all of them. There are also continual film loops, free talks and activities as part of the programme.

All film tickets are to be bought or collected from the Showroom Box Office. Talks and activities are registered via EventBrite via the ShAFF website. 

The Showroom charges a £1 booking fee per transaction (not per ticket) for bookings made on the telephone and online. There is no online booking for MY SHOWROOM & CINE 26 members. Join for free at

The answer is - it's a logistical nightmare. It would mean the Showroom had to guesstimate how many pass holder seats to put aside.

In previous years this has meant turning away people when we actually had empty seats reserved. Alternatively (and even worse, if you'd paid for one) for popular showings it would mean you weren't guaranteed to get in.

Our policy is simple - if you buy a ticket, you've got a seat.

We appreciate that buying tickets for the festival can be a confusing process, we tweak it every year to make it more straightforward. If you have any trouble whilst booking, or have any suggestions on how to improve things please drop us a line.
