Santa Barbara Film Festival Sets Dates for 2011

The city reports an increase in hotel tax revenue from this year's event

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival has set Jan. 27 through Feb. 6, 2011, as the dates for the 26th edition of the festival, SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling announced Tuesday.

Earlier this year, the SBIFF celebrated its silver anniversary, and thousands of people descended on Santa Barbara to toast 25 years of cinematic wonders as well as the bountiful attendance of Oscar-nominated actors. The city of Santa Barbara reported that it saw an increase in hotel tax revenue for the first time in 16 months.

“We are proud of the work we do, the films we feature, the guests we welcome and getting notice that we also helped boost the economy in our sweet town, all the better,” Durling said. “Santa Barbara is the place to be.”

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival is dedicated to the art of filmmaking, which seeks out and offers a broad array of international and independent films, with a commitment to diversity. The SBIFF, which attracts more than 70,000 visitors each year, endeavors to enrich the community culturally and economically by presenting 11 days of films, tributes and symposiums.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
