Best Trailers for June 2020

Santa Barbara is covering live from Santa Barbara with pictures and videos.
SBIFF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts and education organization dedicated to making a positive impact utilizing the power of film. SBIFF is a year-round organization that is best known for its main film festival that takes place each year in February. Over the past 30 years the Santa Barbara International Film Festival has become one of the leading film festivals in the United States – attracting 90,000 attendees and offering 11days of 200+ films, tributes and symposiums. We bring the best of independent and international cinema to Santa Barbara, and we continue to expand our year-round operation to include a wide range of educational programming, fulfilling our mission to engage, enrich and inspire our community through film.

In June 2016, SBIFF entered a new era with the acquisition of the historic and beloved Riviera Theatre. The theatre is SBIFF’s new home and is the catalyst for our program expansion. This marks the first time that Santa Barbara has had a 24/7 community center focused on the art of film and is an incredible opportunity to expand our mission of educational outreach. Particularly important to SBIFF is making available high quality learning opportunities for underserved and vulnerable populations. Our programs and reach are more robust than ever before.


2013 SBIFF Silver Screen Celebration

Santa Barbara – Just when you thought the summer was ending, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival held the Silver Screen Celebration on Sunday August 25, 2013. The fundraiser started off with a classic silent film screening of Douglas Fairbank’s swashbuckling adventure “The Mark of Zorro” at the Historic Arlington Theatre. The screening was in collaboration with the Santa Barbara Theatre Organ Society and featured a live accompaniment by Adam Aceto on the theatre’s Wonder Morton pipe organ, which is one of only five in existence.

Following the screening was a 21 and over masquerade at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. Attendees were treated to live entertainment, food provided by some of Santa Barbara’s finest restaurants and caterers, wine, beer, and cocktails. As the sun set, the DJ took the stage and guests danced the night away.

Proceeds from the event benefit Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s free children’s education and community outreach programs that serve over 16,000 residents each year. Programs included Mike’s Field Trip to the Movies, AppleBox Family Films, 10-10-10 Student Screenwriting & Filmmaking Competitions, 3rd Weekend, and SBIFF College Internships.
