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 the benefits of the festival passes?

The festival passes allow access to any film screening (please be there in time, for no seat reservations are possible). They allow prior access to the festival’s public programme and free access to galleries and museums (http://www.slovackemuzeum.cz/doc/3/).

Holders of the festival passes can get discounts on selected accompanying events (concerts, theatre performances etc.) as well as discounts in selected restaurants.

This year, we offer a new type of the pass, an off-programme pass. This pass can be used (not only) by the locals and allows you to visit our accompanying and expert programme. It does not allow you to enter the screening rooms.

The prices of the festival and off-programme passes can be found at https://en.lfs.cz/passes/ and you can purchase them via My LFŠ or at the SFS Festival Centre during the festival.

Can I get any discount on a festival pass?

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.

Please upload a scanned image of your valid ID in My LFŠ or send it to slevy@lfs.cz within three days after your festival pass has been purchased. You will receive a confirmation email. Discounts cannot be combined.

People with disabilities (Disability Card or ZTP/P Card holders) and accompanying persons are eligible for a 50% discount on tickets and festival passes. To request a discount, please email us at slevy@lfs.cz.

No further discount can be applied for the off-programme pass.

Where can I pick up my pass, tickets and other purchased items?

If you’ve paid in advance, go straight to the SFS Collect Point in front of the Hvězda Cinema.

You can also buy your festival pass or discounted tickets to the accompanying programme at the SFS Festival Centre in front of the Hvězda Cinema.

If you want to buy a ticket pack for a full price or the tickets to the accompanying programme, please go to the SFS Shop.

Accommodation and Accessibility

Do you also offer accommodation?

All holders of festival passes can purchase accommodation via My LFŠ. We offer sleeping-bag accommodation (in schools, gymnasiums, and camps) and beds in local dormitories (UTB and Mojmír).

Accommodation can be purchased at the SFS Festival Centre and is available for everyone, not only for the holders of festival passes.

For more accommodation options, please visit: (www.facebook.com/groups/ubytovaninalfs/).

Are there any age restrictions at the festival?

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 with workshops and theatre performances.

All screening rooms are barrier-free.

Can I visit the festival without a ticket or festival pass?

Due to the exceptional situation, the 46th Summer Film School Uherské Hradiště is accessible only for the holders of festival or off-programme passes.

The off-programme pass can be used (not only) by the locals. It allows you to enter our accompanying and expert programme in our tents in Smetana Park (Children/Literary Tent, Czech TV Tent, Czech Radio Tent, Respekt Tent, Scout Institute Tent), open-air cinemas (in Smetana Park and Redside Zone Kolejní Square), Mír Club, Gallery of Moravian Slovakia, Museum of Moravian Slovakia, and Rochus Park. It also allows you to buy discounted tickets to theatres and concerts. The off-programme pass costs 50CZK.

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.

70+ seniors are allowed to reserve a seat for two screenings in a day. They just need to report to the Guest Service in Smetana Park one day or at least 3 hours before the screening.

When and where can I find the festival’s daily programme?

Our daily programme is announced in section Daily programme, usually 3-4 weeks before the festival.

You can also use the SFS mobile application where you can create your personal programme. You can download it for free at the App Store or Google Play.

Can I register my own film?

The Summer Film School is a non-competitive festival and the selection of films is fully within the remit of its organizing team.

How can I buy a ticket to a concert or theatre show if I don’t have a festival pass?

The SFS accompanying programme is open to everyone, however:

  1. Holders of the festival passes can buy discounted tickets in advance via My LFŠ or at the SFS Festival Centre by 4 p.m. on a particular day.
  2. Non-holders of the festival passes can buy full-price tickets at the SFS Shop in front of the Hvězda Cinema or at the town’s information centre in Masaryk Square or at the venue half an hour before the start of a show.
  3. Those who have a valid festival or off-programme pass can also buy a ticket at the entrance to the Redside Zone Kolejní Square one hour prior to a concert/theatre.
