This year’s Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Closing Night Film will highlight a diverse and impressive line-up of documentary shorts – each making their World Premiere at the Arlington Theatre on Saturday, February 10th at 8:00pm. The lineup features local Santa Barbara filmmakers: Chris Price and Casey McGarry’s CASCARÓN, Ryan Slattery’s CROSSING THE CHANNEL, Hallie Brown’s OUT OF THE ASHES, Justin Gunn’s A SOLSTICE IN SANTA BARBARA, John Klein’s SOUL OF THE CITY, and Danielle Cohen’s THE TIPPING POINT.
The selection of films represents the beauty, warmth and vitality that are quintessential Santa Barbara. The films cover a wide range of local events, people, and places, including Fiesta, the Summer Solstice Parade, the East Beach Grill, and Cold Springs Tavern, as well as local activism to combat climate change and an extraordinary swimmer who crosses the Santa Barbara Channel.
Everyone is encouraged everyone to attend this very special evening to gather together and celebrate local filmmakers and the wonderful community of Santa Barbara.
Special thanks to Closing Night Film sponsor Winchester Mystery House for supporting this evening for the 2nd year in a row.
