The Festival Pavilion acts as the core of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and is located in the Lobero Theatre Courtyard and in the evenings it utilizes the stage.. In this multipurpose area, Festival Passholders can congregate to discuss films while mingling with filmmakers and industry professionals during the day. On weekday mornings, filmmaker seminars are held and open to the public completely free of charge. In the late afternoon, Platinum Passholders are treated to Happy Hours with light appetizers and drinks. On select evenings following celebrity tributes, Platinum Passholders can attend the “Studio” Parties and have a bite to eat, drink, listen to live music and talk to other Festival goers about the films they’ve seen or plan to see.
