ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The founder of the SBCFF also founded The San Francisco World Festival in 2003. This festival premiered Michael Franti's film "I Know I'm Not Alone" and quickly became known and respected on the local festival scene.
The Santa Barbara Community Film Festival is dedicated to
rewarding artists for their individual talents and for their creative expression. The festival is an intimate and community experience.
The festival is designed to bring together local, national, and international filmmakers to Santa Barbara in a small intimate setting to maximize exposure, networking , and creating possibilities for meaningful connections.
The festival's goal is to support the work of worldwide independent filmmakers and also to expose this art to the local community of progressive and friendly Santa Barbara in an intimate way.
