Santa Barbara


 
filmfestivals.com 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.

Virtuous Follow Up by Kimberly Deisler

An impromptu conversation that took place in the Lobero Theater green room was the direct result of an accidental drop off of both Melissa Leo and Rosemarie DeWitt at a red carpet event, albeit not for the Virtuosos Awards, but for the surf film Waveriders. 

 

“Looking for something hot to do in Santa Barbara?  Check out the new film Surfer Dude … no wait, Super Dude, yeah, that’s funnier.  Okay, Super Dude it is … I saw lights, I saw a red carpet … did I look at the marquee?  No….I just got out and walked the carpet and answered questions until someone said, ‘what are you doing here?”    

 

The crème de la crème of actor’s actors, this group is jammed packed with real, raw talent … so understated and compelling that the actors dissolve into each character with flawless transformation.  

 

Each individual shined as their magical personalities and mutual camaraderie described real acting; the kind where you’ll take any part just to work, where you can’t make ends meet financially, where you’re hairy legged, nuclear-holocaust-proof-roommates insist on hanging out in the kitchen sink that doubles as a bathtub … and you do it all because you have to act.  It was great to see the consummate unsungs get recognition they deserve, despite the fact they can’t surf.
