Free and Discounted Events

SLIFF continues its tradition of offering a large selection of free and discounted events to maximize its outreach into the community and to make the festival affordable to all. 

This year, we offer 29 free in-person events. Our virtual offerings feature 3 free live streams and 38 discounted programs at a special $5 price. 

In addition, for the 19th year, we present the Georgia Frontiere Cinema for Students Program, which provides free access to film programs to St. Louis-area elementary, middle, and high schools. For more information, visit the Cinema for Students section of the CSL website.
