Cinema Society is an exclusive membership community made up of hundreds of local Santa Barbara residents. This program fosters an appreciation of independent and studio films, film history and the marvelous diversity of world cinema. Filmmakers and celebrity guests participate in Q&A sessions and post-event receptions, providing Cinema Society members the opportunity to engage with the artists in person. Each year, Cinema Society presents 40+ film screenings.

Your sponsorship of Cinema Society also supports access to the art of filmmaking for area students and Santa Barbara residents.
