The Santa Barbara Independent’s writers, editors, and designers somehow found the time amid the usual weekly hullabaloo to put together our fifth annual, and best yet, Meet the Makers magazine, published in 18,000 copies of this paper and available at most SBIFF venues. It holds more than 40 interviews with filmmakers whose works appear at the 2016 Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF). (More appear online in our full SBIFF coverage at independent.com/SBIFF.) How’d they find the time? Perhaps they followed the old adage that when things get too hot, make some popcorn and go to the movies.
