Film Festivals & Events in Santa Barbara

Ready, camera, action! Before Hollywood was in Hollywood, it was in Santa Barbara. With a film history that dates back to the days of Charlie Chaplin and silent film, Santa Barbara has always held moviemaking close to its heart, not to mention its popularity as a production venue for both commercials and feature films, such as Sideways and It's Complicated. Grab some popcorn and settle in for a night of movie watching unlike any other.
