What’s Hot this Weekend: Santa Barbara International Film Festival
If you are in need of an international escape, but cannot get away just yet, hit up the Santa Barbara International Film Festival this weekend. The Festival kicks off this evening and runs through February 9th. Also, there is so much to do in Santa Barbara outside of the Film Festival, you can turn the weekend into a full on mini escape.
Attend: Party the night away at both the opening and closing night galas. Make sure to catch the featured film before each of the galas. On opening night catch the world premier of Mission Blue and on closing night catch the critically acclaimed Before Trilogy: Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight.
Watch: With over a hundred films to choose from, there is a movie for everyone. Good fils to catch are Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, Make Hummus Not War, and Le Passé. To purchase tickets and check out the all the other movies you can catch, click here.
Star Gaze: Being honored at the film festival are Cate Blanchett, Oprah Winfrey, Martin Scorsese, and Leonardo DiCaprio to name a few. Watch them arrive on the red carpet from State Street or purchase all access passes here.
Bonus: In between film viewing go wine tasting, shopping, and enjoy fine dining. Plus the weather isn’t too bad either!
Love & Travel,
