Frequently asked questions

Wait. What is Fantastic Film Festival Australia?

A home for mind-breakers, trend-setters, razor-walkers, loose-wires, truth-talkers, trailblazers and envelope-pushers, Fantastic Film Festival Australia comes to Lido Cinemas (VIC) and Ritz Cinemas (NSW) from April 14. We're a film festival celebrating genre and alternative cinema from around the globe; cinema that is subversive and thought-provoking, outside-of-the-box and a little bit wild. 

How do I buy tickets?

You're in the right place! Use the Films & Events page to navigate through to the film/s of your choice, and click through on the session time to finalise your booking. Tickets can also be purchased at the Lido and Ritz Cinemas box offices. 

How much are tickets?

Tickets are $23 for adults and $18.50 for concession / Lido and Ritz Cinemas members. Festival passes include a 5-pass, 10-pass, and a VIP pass. '4 for $64' gives a group of 4 heading to the same session a discounted rate: see here for full ticketing details. 

Where is the festival screening?

Fantastic Film Festival Australia screens at Lido Cinemas in Hawthorn, Victoria and Ritz Cinemas in Randwick, New South Wales. See here for full venue details. 

Are the films classified?

Fantastic Film Festival Australia has received a classifification exemption from the Classifification Board. Films screening at FFFA are Unclassifified 18+. Nobody under 18 (including infants) can legally attend a session with this exemption.
