SBIFF’s Santa Barbara Filmmaker Screenings Series occurs in conjunction with Downtown Santa Barbara’s monthly 1st Thursday. Stop by SBIFF’s Education Center at 1330 State Street between 5pm and 8pm, enjoy popcorn, wine and a short film from a Santa Barbara Filmmaker. Every month we will highlight a different filmmaker’s film, showing every 30 minutes starting at 5:30pm through 8:00pm.
The inaugural event in June celebrated our dear friend Russ Spencer who championed Santa Barbara Filmmakers. His heart-warming short doc A MAN’S PLACE is set in Willie’s Barbershop on Figueroa Street but is really about complicated father-son relationships.
August will be featuring Casey McGarry’s film CASCARÓN. The film shows a brief look into the lives of four Hispanic families in Santa Barbara who carry on the folk art tradition of making cascarones (confetti eggs) for Fiesta.
