Program #7647RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I have attended many film festivals, since I have taught film courses for over fifty years. I have worked at the Ann Arbor Film Festival, the Kansas City Film Festival and currently screen films for the Mill Valley Film Festival. I have found that the Santa Barbara Festival is probably the easiest one to negotiate and one of the few where I have never been left out of a screening. The venues are great as are the films shown. I hope your future festivals are as rewarding as this one was this year. I saw fifteen films at the festival this, and I am not sorry about having attended even one of these. Road Scholar does a commendable job of coordinating the screenings and providing cinematically appropriate support by offering lectures and discussions before and after the films.

The festival was great.. The films chosen were excellent, the location was wonderful. The hotel was charming, it was within walking distance of the films and lectures. The lectures had improved and dealt with more formal aspects of film which we valued.

we love this program and intend to return...Santa Barbara is a great town and easy to get around in even without a car. The films are always interesting and some never make it to your city so this is the only opportunity to see them.
