One of the highlights of my year is always Santa Barbara International Film Festival, which offers a whirlwind 10 days of more than 200 films, tributes and symposiums that range from American indie films to world cinema and everything in between. We can’t wait so see what the organizers have in store for this 31st annual event. | Feb. 3–13. Various locations, downtown Santa Barbara. 805/963-0023, sbiff.org.
