Santa Barbara International Film Festival Announces Partnership with American Society of Cinematographers


Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) has announced a new partnership with American Society of Cinematographers (ASC). The ASC Award for Cinematography has been added to the list of SBIFF’s 2024 awards and will recognize a film with exceptional visual composition that advances the art and science of cinematography and promotes the motion picture as an art form.

A list of qualifying films will be picked from the SBIFF programming slate, and the winning film will be selected by a team of jurors at ASC. In addition to the award, the winning filmmakers will receive a special invitation as guests of honor at the prestigious 38th Annual ASC Awards.

Additionally, SBIFF and ASC will work together to further their shared mission of film education with cinematography workshops offered to participants in SBIFF’s 10-10-10 Screenwriting and Filmmaking Mentorship and Competition educational program, and the student winners of the10-10-10 Filmmaking Competition will receive professional-level rental camera packages, courtesy of ASC.

10-10-10 offers unparalleled industry insight and access, demystifying the craft though in-depth workshops and lessons available free of charge to local high school and college students. The program pairs ten student screenwriter-director duos who, with the help of their professional filmmaking mentors, create ten films over five months that will premiere at the historic Arlington Theatre during SBIFF 2024.

“The partnership with ASC will serve as an excellent complement to our renowned 10-10-10 program,” SBIFF’s Education Manager Claire Waterhouse said.“With their support, we can offer our students even deeper insight into the craft of filmmaking.”

ASC President Shelly Johnson added, “The American Society of Cinematographers is delighted to support the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in highlighting the value of visual storytelling in the world of film making. We look forward to working with the SBIFF in their educational programs for aspiring filmmakers and to help encourage the next generation of filmmakers.”

The 39th edition of SBIFF is scheduled for February 7-17, 2024. More information is available at
