2018 Santa Barbara International Film Festival Program Announced

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF), presented by UGG®, announced today the highly anticipated lineup for the 33rd edition, which will run Jan. 31 to Feb. 10, 2018. The festival will offer a vast array of films representing 58 countries, 45 world premieres, and 53 U.S. premieres, along with tributes with the year's top talent, panel discussions, and free community education and outreach programs.

OPENING NIGHT SBIFF 2018 will kick off the festival on Wednesday, Jan. 31, at the historic Arlington Theatre with the world premiere of the public, written and directed by Emilio Estevez, starring Estevez, Alec Baldwin, Jena Malone, Christian Slater, Taylor Schilling, Che "Rhymefest" Smith, Gabrielle Union, Jacob Vargas, Michael K. Williams, and Jeffrey Wright. The Opening Night Film is presented by Belvedere Vodka.

What begins as a nonviolent Occupy sit-in and ragtag act of civil disobedience quickly escalates into a standoff with local riot police, a no-nonsense crisis negotiator, and a savvy DA with lofty political ambitions. Amidst dropping temperatures and flaring tempers on both sides of the lockdown, uncertainty looms around how the situation can be resolved without resorting to violence, while law enforcement officials and local media spin the facts to serve their own political agendas. This David vs. Goliath story puts the spotlight on some of our nation's most challenging issues: homelessness, mental illness, and drug addiction, and sets the drama inside one of our last bastions of democracy-in-action: your public library. Following the film, the Opening Night Gala, sponsored by Amazon Studios, will take place in the beautiful outdoor Paseo Nuevo Shops and Restaurants in downtown Santa Barbara. It will feature entertainment, food, libations, and a chance to celebrate the start of the 33rd SBIFF.

CLOSING NIGHT
The Festival will close Saturday, Feb. 10 at the Arlington Theatre with a to-be-announced film. The Closing Night Film is sponsored by Winchester Mystery House.
