Yesterday afternoon, the 34th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) hosted a special screening of Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse as part of the educational initiative, Mike’s Field Trip to the Movies.

Named for renowned nature cinematographer Mike deGruy, Mike’s Field Trip to the Movies uses filmmaking to stimulate creative, confident, and culturally aware thinkers. The program is offered to 4,000 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students from throughout Santa Barbara County, and SBIFF provides free transportation to students from Title I schools. Sponsors include the Montecito Bank & Trust, Patagonia, Union Bank, Bentson Foundation and Volentine Family Foundation.

The screening of Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse was followed by a Q&A with two of the film’s directors, Bob Persichetti and Peter Ramsey, and one of the biggest questions that came up during the discussion was whether or not fans could expect a sequel. Both directors hinted at the possibility, telling the crowd “we think so!”
