Attend on a Budget



The Santa Barbara International Film Festival is a pass based festival and having a pass is the best way to attend. The passes are offered at 25% off during our summer pass sale which begins in May.


We do sell individual tickets to our celebrity tributes and panel discussions but in regards to film screenings, we sell the 4 Film and 10 Film MiniPaks. The 4 Pak grants 1 person access to 4 movies, 4 people to 1 movie or any other combination there in. Seating is first come first served. Q cards to reserve your spot in line are handed out one hour before each film screening.
