In partnership with Easy Lift Transportation, SBIFF presents Programs for Seniors, an enriching film experience for Santa Barbara’s transit-dependent elderly completely free of charge. Together, we will provide roughly 1,200 seniors per year an opportunity to bypass cost-prohibitive entertainment expenses of traveling to and from the theatre, purchasing refreshments, and buying the movie ticket itself.
By utilizing SBIFF’s new space in the historical Riviera Theatre we will hold a monthly screening event, which allows the love and power of film to reach our underserved senior residents. We believe our program will promote engaging conversation and help connect this demographic of citizens to a new community that they would otherwise be unable enjoy.
We would like to thank the following for their generous support of this program:
