Santa Barbara International Film Festival & Lady Lutah

SBIFF moves into the Lobero for another fabulous festival season

Not to miss at the Lobero this year:

  • New documentary film, Lutah, honors one of the Lobero’s–and Santa Barbara’s–foremost female architects

  • Panels, Panels, Panels!

  • Minipacks on sale now at the Lobero Box Office

LUTAH explores the life of a little-known architect who left a big legacy.  Lutah Maria Riggs navigated her way through the male-centric world of architecture and brought a freshness to the established architectural styles of Southern California — Including, the Lobero Theatre. This film will be shown at the Lobero on Friday 1/31 at 11 am and again on Wednesday 2/5 at 4:30pm. Read the full description here.

Riggs was responsible for the columns and capitals of the Lobero Theatre remodel and for design elements of the historic El Paseo complex and Casa del Herrero. Smith financed her second commission, her own home called Clavelitos in Montecito. The Lobero Theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

 

Get ready for an amazing round of panel discussions with top industry talents.

These eagerly anticipated Q&A’s are a festival highlight year after year, offering insight in the multi-faceted journey from script to screen.  SBIFF brings in the best of the best to discuss their trials and triumphs.

Don’t miss the Directors Panel, Producers Panel, VFX panel, Writers Panel and Women’s panels at the Lobero this year.

Purchase Minipacks for 4 or 10 films at the Lobero Box Office.

Package holders get to enjoy a new feature this year to reserve your spot in line. Check in for the desired film one hour before start and grab your “cue card.” Be sure to return 20 minutes before the credits roll, and you’re in. ProTip: Minipacks are great to share, that way no one gets the screen-fatigues.

Viva la film Fest. As always, keep an eye out on the TBA listings, and we’ll see you at the theatre.
