All tickets are available through Headfirst or at Bricks Projects Box office during the film festival. Tickets for most events are on a sliding scale of  £2 - £12. Choose what to pay based on your circumstances. We ask that you be honest with yourself about your financial situation. This allows us to provide financial flexibility to those who most need it and make PIFF affordable to more people alongside sustaining the Festival and supporting queer filmmakers. By paying the higher price, you are effectively paying for those that otherwise would not be able to afford to attend. If you have any questions about what you should pay, please get in touch via or ask a member of staff on the day.  Free tickets are available too, just email / message us on
