Not Your Typical Dinner and a Movie: Santa Barbara's Film Feast Pairs with the Santa Barbara International Film Festival
Santa Barbara's Film Feast is a unique take on Restaurant Week. Coinciding with the 28th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) January 30th - February 9th, 2014, Film Feast participants (restaurants, wine tasting rooms and hotels) offer special tasting menu's and hotel packages using the theme "Made in Santa Barbara."
Santa Barbara is where the greatest things come together. Ocean meets mountains. Sunny meets year-round. The good life meets the great life. And for eleven days every year, exceptional film meets award-winning cuisine and libations during Film Feast-your invitation to explore the best plates and pours throughout Santa Barbara's many theatre districts during the annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Film Feast is the perfect time to come and get a taste of why it's not just made well, it's made in Santa Barbara.
Film Feast 2014 stars Santa Barbara's South Coast: Carpinteria, Montecito, Summerland, Santa Barbara and Goleta. It is a fun and creative way to bring business to the restaurants and tasting rooms that are near the action of the Film Festival. Last year the "Made in Santa Barbara" theme broke box office records; this year's sequel will be even bigger and better with 36 prix fixe menus and tasting flights and 16 hotel packages to date. The popular Film Feast Guide is returning as well. This handy, compact booklet is organized by theatre district so while out and about at the many world premieres, celebrity tributes and panel discussions at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, attendees can easily find participating restaurants, tasting rooms and hotels nearby.
