“After another fantastic year, we are ready to hit the ground running for 2018,” said Roger Durling, Executive Director of SBIFF.

“We look forward to continuing our growth and bringing exciting new developments to the Santa Barbara community, and we plan to make our 33rd installment the best festival yet.”


In addition to screening numerous films over the years, including countless US and World Premieres, SBIFF is known for programs such as the prestigious Tribute Honor which counts Emma Stone, Casey Affleck, Mahershala Ali, Damien Chazelle, and Janelle Monáe among recipients, and the acclaimed Panel Series, where accomplished industry guests come together for lively and revealing discussions, which make the festival a key stop in the award season race and is often considered an Oscar race bookend opposite to the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

SBIFF passes are offered at 25% off beginning August 1.
