In 2021 the IFAFF screened on-line with 103 films from 23 countries, with the hope of a hybrid in 2022, of both physical and on-line. The International Fine Arts Film Festival is a boutique festival that premiered in Santa Barbara, California in 2010; it then occurred as a film festival in Venice, CA in 2015. In 2016 it exploded as an International Fine Arts Film Festival full of shorts plus a few full length features back in fabulous Santa Barbara, California! It may screen at more than one venue, including an outdoor night-time extravaganza. Originally conceived as a festival of films about the fine arts, it now incorporates dance and experimental art forms and approaches, including animation. Seeking a vision that will demonstrate the collaborative nature of the arts, it is hoped to continue that collaboration. The festival in2022 will be totally unique and deliciously awesome on-line and in Santa Barbara, Ca.
