A Star Is Born

Walk the red carpet at a leading film festival—with celebrity stylists to showcase your star quality. With private screenings, awards ceremonies, and exclusive after-parties, it’s an ingenue’s Hollywood dream come true.

Is the click-flash of the paparazzi your siren call? Do you win your office Oscar pool every year? In short, does your film fandom know no bounds? If so, this megawatt Hollywood experience is made for you. In an exclusive partnership between Rosewood Miramar Beach in Montecito, California, and the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, guests will receive VVIP treatment at the hallowed event, with all-access passes to screenings, events, and after-parties.

This Rosewood Limited Edition experience begins with a luxe version of “dinner and a movie”: After a sumptuous meal at Caruso’s, the resort’s oceanfront restaurant, you’ll head in a Rolls-Royce Ghost to the historic Riviera Theater for a private screening of the 2020 Academy Award–nominated film of your choice—gourmet snacks and beverages included.

The following night, the Rolls will squire you to the 2020 Maltin Modern Master Award Ceremony (recent honorees: Glenn Close, Gary Oldman, Denzel Washington). Afterwards, you’ll hobnob with top talent at a private after-party hosted by SBIFF’s executive director. The next day is spent getting ready for your close-up at Sense, A Rosewood Spa. A radiance-boosting Signature Extreme 360 Anti-Aging Facial will be followed by a private hair and makeup session with celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee of the Wall Group Los Angeles, and hair stylist Renato Campora—who has perfected the tresses of Jennifer Lopez, Julianne Moore, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Once you’re camera-ready, you’ll walk the SBIFF red carpet at the historic Arlington Theater alongside Tinseltown glitterati, before being ushered to your reserved seats at the 2020 Virtuosos Awards, which honors the year’s breakthrough performances (Claire Foy, Sam Elliott, and Roma’s Yalitza Aparicio were among those fêted last year). Toast them all at yet another private after-party following the ceremony—by then, you may be considered a boldface name yourself.

Between events, you’ll rest up in the Ambassador Suite at Rosewood Miramar Beach, blessed with mogul-worthy views of the 16-acre resort’s lush gardens and the glimmering Pacific. Price $50,715.
