The Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF), running February 3rd to 13th, is an eleven day event held in the seaside city of Santa Barbara, California. SBIFF is proud to present a diverse slate of more than 200 films to over 90,000 film enthusiasts.
In addition to showcasing a diverse spectrum of films, tributes and galas, SBIFF also offers seminars with industry professionals including Directors, Screenwriters, Producers and Women's Panels, as well as provocative Q&A sessions with a diverse selection of filmmakers.
SBIFF has established itself as one of the premiere international film festivals. In addition to expanding the slate each year to highlight emerging genres, styles and regions, SBIFF is growing their free children's educational and community outreach programs with the "10-10-10 student screenwriting and filmmaking competition," "Mike's Field Trip to the Movies" and "Applebox" which cumulatively served over 16,000 students and families during our last festival.
The Santa Barbara International Film Festival will open with the U.S. premiere of Paramount Pictures’ “THE LITTLE PRINCE” at the Arlington Theatre on Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016. Directed by Mark Osborne and featuring the voices of Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, James Franco, Mackenzie Foy, and Benicio Del Toro, “THE LITTLE PRINCE” is based on the classic tale of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
