Ojai Music Festival

Here in the 805 we have some of the most world-renown arts festivals in the United States. In Santa Barbara we have the annual Santa Barbara Film Festival, which has grown into a major force in the international film world, now being the closest thing to the Cannes Film Festival in the Western Hemisphere. Others try to claim this title of course, but Santa Barbara’s Film Festival walks its talk.
