Santa Barbara Surf Film Festival Presents:

Santa Barbara Surf Film Festival 2022

The Festival returns in 2022!
March 18 - 19, 2022

We are back on March 18th and 19th for the second annual Santa Barbara Surf Film Festival after a 2-year hiatus due to Covid.

The 2022 festival will be a different experience that celebrates Santa Barbara’s rich surf history at a new venue showcasing captivating surf cinema, live music, art in multiple mediums, local charities & vendors, and food & artisan drinks. Our Covid friendly event at the Community Arts Workshop space features indoor and outdoor activities that allow plenty of room to roam around, have fun, and feel comfortable.

We’re very proud to announce our feature films for Friday and Saturday nights: “Waterman” and “Morning of the Earth”. The art hall, open both days, will be a large format exhibition of works by Albert Falzon. While listening to live music that will be played before and after films, enjoy the fresh air when strolling by local vendors, sponsor activations, and non-profit booths. Food and drinks will also be available for purchase.

Diana Small Presents:

Who Knows What You Are

March 24, 25, 26, 31 April 1, 2 — 8pm.
Written and directed by Diana Small
With original pop songs by Diana Small 

Check out the preview at Broadway World.

Who Knows What You Are is a dramatized song cycle, featuring original music, film, and theater. Centered around a high-stakes OB/GYN exam, interchanging female protagonists birth the world, are drafted for the war, plant pollinators, become entertainers, encounter death and choose love. It’s pop music and ocean forward. 

This show emerged out of the constraints of the pandemic (what could collaborative artists create together while keeping physical distance?) and the existential question that emerged: When we give meaning & purpose to suffering, are we encouraging preventable suffering to persist? This show acknowledges and wrestles with the pain of the current moment, while also offering the hope that comes from choosing human connection against all odds.
