Santa Barbara International Film Festival

The VisitSYV Lounge was a beautiful place to enjoy local wines, seminars, and to discuss some of the great films screened at SBIFF

VisitSYV was the proud sponsor of the Santa Ynez Valley Lounge at this year’s Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF). We hosted educational film related seminars and panel discussions during the day and happy hours in the evening. We had a wonderful time and the feedback has been incredible. Our goal was to increase VisitSYV’s presence within Santa Barbara County and inspire the 90,000 festival attendees to spend a few days with us here in the Santa Ynez Valley (only 30 minutes North of Santa Barbara).

Check out the short YouTube video produced by the film festival regarding the Santa Ynez Valley Lounge. We hope that it will inspire you to pay a visit to the Santa Ynez Valley.
