Colombo, Sri Lanka and Santa Barbara, California are separated by 9,301 miles and 12.5 time zone hours. However, Sri Lanka is once again coming to Santa Barbara in the form of the 2nd Ceylon International Film Festival (CEYIFF) which will run from Monday, October 24 to Saturday, October 28, 2023.

CEYIFF is the only film festival in the world to feature Sri Lankan films outside Sri Lanka. For those seeking cinematic adventure, CEYIFF 2023 offers 4 feature films and 15 accompanying shorts selected by a jury of industry professionals from California and Sri Lanka. The broad array of films includes features from Sri Lanka, Japan and USA as well as fiction, documentaries and animation. The program will include a classic of Sri Lankan cinema, The Rainy Day, by Bhadraji Mahinda Jayathilaka, who will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award during the Awards Gala.
