SBA & SBIFF Partner to Attract Travelers All Over the World

The Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) is pleased to announce a partnership with the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) in a mutual effort to encourage travelers from all over the world to attend this major cultural event February 3-13, 2016.

“We wanted to find a way to uniquely support the festival. Our passengers are well versed in the arts and after discussing several options with Roger Durling and his team, we decided to hang a 30 foot banner on the Airport’s iconic tower outside the airline terminal to promote the festival,” said Hazel Johns, Airport Director.

The banner, designed by artist Barbara Boros, is now in place and will be displayed through February 14.

"Santa Barbara is a special place and anyone that visits knows that. We are excited to partner with the Santa Barbara Airport so we both can better serve Santa Barbara's residents and guests in this amazing city that we all call home." SBIFF Executive Director, Roger Durling

Opening night at the Arlington Theatre will feature the U. S. premiere of “The Little Prince,” based on the classic tale of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.
