Safety Measures at FIAF

[Updated September 7, 2022]

The health and well-being of all our visitors and team are our number one priority.

The safety measures below have been set up keeping in mind the current guidelines issued by City and State authorities as well as the variety of educational and cultural activities that FIAF presents for both adults and children.

We ask everyone to follow the safety measures and pay attention to the instructions of security guards, ushers, teachers, and other FIAF team members. We thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Masks Optional

Masks are no longer required at any FIAF location including inside our classrooms. Masks are recommended but no longer mandatory in our theater and event spaces. Anyone who wishes to wear a mask may continue to do so.

Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination Not Required

Guests and FIAF Students are no longer required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination to attend an event or class at any FIAF location.

General Visitor Guidelines

Please stay home if you are not feeling well, have exhibited symptoms of Covid-19 recently, or have been exposed to someone diagnosed with Covid-19.

If you have tickets for a FIAF event and are unable to attend because you have tested positive for Covid-19 or been exposed to someone with Covid-19, please contact within 24 hours of the event to transfer your ticket to another attendee. We are no longer offering refunds for tickets due to Covid-19 infections.

Safety Measures Taken by FIAF

  • Hand-sanitizing stations are offered throughout FIAF at entrances, elevators, and other high-traffic areas.
  • Event spaces, classrooms, elevators, restrooms, and other high-touch areas are cleaned and disinfected throughout the day.
  • We have made improvements to overall air quality and ventilation and expanded the use of high-efficiency filters in all of our venues.

These measures are implemented to improve safety for all, but they are not an absolute protection against Covid-19. Guests assume their own risk by entering FIAF spaces. The measures currently in place are subject to change and may be revised at any time.
