Ahead of what looks to be a massive spectacle, the Santa Clarita International Film Festival is calling all local artists and musicians in the region interested in performing live music or comedy and displaying their art from the Dec. 9 launch until Dec. 12.
“We want to support – as much as possible – the artists here and in the San Fernando Valley,” said Lisa deSouza, who is spearheading SCIFF and serving as one of the festival’s judges. “The question is how do we get to them, it’s easier said than done.

It’s definitely been an interesting journey.”
