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.


Santa Barbara Fest Student Showcase-in-Place Winners Announced!


The Santa Barbara International Film Festival is proud to announce the winners of its first-ever online student film festival showcasing the work of local high school and college students.
The event was created to address the fact that area student filmmakers were going to miss out on screening their films publicly due to the coronavirus pandemic, and to give these students a platform to do just that.
“We are thrilled with how our first online student film festival turned out,” said SBIFF Education Coordinator Claire Waterhouse. “The quality of the films we received was really impressive, and the community turned out in big numbers to watch them and cast their votes. Mostly, we are so happy to have been able to support these students by offering them a way to screen their works for a wide and enthusiastic audience.”
The winners are:
High School Winner
"Left on Read"
Joshua Kazali, Santa Ynez Valley High School
College Winner
Lyndall Stephenson, Westmont College
High School Winner
"Beer to Bread"
Grace Miller, Santa Barbara High School
College Winner
"EL CANTANTE: A Salsa Film"
Daniel Blanco, UCSB
The films are still available for viewing at, and all entrants are allowed to submit their films for consideration in SBIFF 2021 as well. Each winner will receive a Cinema Pass and pair of tribute tickets to SBIFF 2021.
