SBIFF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts and education organization dedicated to making a positive impact utilizing the power of film. SBIFF is a year-round organization that is best known for its main film festival that takes place each year in February. Over the past 30 years the Santa Barbara International Film Festival has become one of the leading film festivals in the United States – attracting 90,000 attendees and offering 11days of 200+ films, tributes and symposiums. We bring the best of independent and international cinema to Santa Barbara, and we continue to expand our year-round operation to include a wide range of educational programming, fulfilling our mission to engage, enrich and inspire our community through film.

In June 2016, SBIFF entered a new era with the acquisition of the historic and beloved Riviera Theatre. The theatre is SBIFF’s new home and is the catalyst for our program expansion. This marks the first time that Santa Barbara has had a 24/7 community center focused on the art of film and is an incredible opportunity to expand our mission of educational outreach. Particularly important to SBIFF is making available high quality learning opportunities for underserved and vulnerable populations. Our programs and reach are more robust than ever before.

SBIFF Audience Choice Award from The Santa Barbara Independent: Richard Hobert's The Birdcatcher’s Son (Fågelfångarens son)

Exclusive interview for filmfestivals.com

 

 

 

It´s the late 1800s and birdcatcher Esmar and his wife Johanna are trying to survive on the harsh cliffs of the Faroe Islands. Local law dictates that unless they have a son, an heir to the hold of the land, they will be evicted. When Johanna gives birth to their third daughter, with time on the lease running out, they become desperate. A friend, innkeeper Livia, suggests that the only remaining chance for Johanna have a son is to be impregnated by another man. It´s unthinkable but they are pushed to the brink. When they choose Livia´s lover, “The French Captain” to do the deed, none of them can understand the ultimate consequences of their choices.
