The Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival (SBJFF) is the largest Jewish cultural arts event on the Central Coast, bringing together +1,800 attendees each year from all over California. Whether you are an individual or a business, your support will facilitate the presentation of an extraordinary collection of entertaining and thoughtprovoking films and programs that create meaningful moments of engagement in the Santa Barbara community.

Sponsorship enables you to reach a prime demographic of over 3,000 members of the Santa Barbara Jewish community, and the entire Central Coast, through extensive print, TV, and online media coverage and promotion of the festival.

The Santa Barbara Jewish Film Festival also provides an opportunity for the greater community to be part of this cultural experience by learning about Jewish culture, Israel, and Jewish history. The impact of SBJFF goes well beyond just showing movies. It touches people from all backgrounds, ages, persuasions, and all walks of life — engaging the broadest spectrum of the community.
