You are invited to the 14th SBIFFF Annual Kirk Douglas Award honoring Martin Scorsese


Dear Friends, 

Like you, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival values access to the arts and arts education for all. While we're known primarily for our Festival in January, SBIFF also offers a slate of free educational programming on a year-round basis. Our education programs focus on some of the most underserved throughout Santa Barbara County. It's the support of our community that allows us to offer these programs—and continually improve and expand them—year after year. 

SBIFF's Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film is the annual fundraiser held in support of these educational programs. 

This year's gala will be honoring legendary director Martin Scorsese at the Ritz Carlton Bacara on November 14th, 2019. We invite you to join us, along with some very special guests, to celebrate the achievements of Martin Scorsese and would be honored if you'd consider attending the event. Please see the announcement below for more information on the Kirk Douglas Award gala.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about SBIFF's education programs, please feel free to call or email me directly. 

Benjamin Goedert
Development Director

Academy Award® winner Martin Scorsese will be honored with SBIFF's fourteenth annual Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film. The award will be presented at a black-tie Gala dinner at The Ritz Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara on Thursday, November 14, 2019; benefiting SBIFF’s free year-round educational programs.

Martin Scorsese has given us an extensive list of expertly crafted and unforgettable films including TAXI DRIVER, RAGING BULL, GOODFELLAS, GANGS OF NEW YORK, THE AVIATOR, THE DEPARTED, HUGO, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, SILENCE and many more from his remarkable career spanning over 50 years. His next film, THE IRISHMAN, brings him together again with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. The film is set to be released by Netflix in theatres this fall.

Since 2006, the annual Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film has been awarded to a lifelong contributor to cinema through their work in front of the camera, behind, or both. Mr. Scorsese will be the fourth Director to receive this prestigious honor, joining the ranks of past honorees Hugh Jackman, Dame Judi Dench, Warren Beatty, Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange, Forest Whitaker, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Harrison Ford, Quentin Tarantino, Ed Harris, and John Travolta.

“Martin Scorsese is a brilliant filmmaker. He has made countless unforgettable films and is a true cinematic treasure. I am honored and grateful that he will receive the 14th annual Kirk Douglas Award.” states Kirk Douglas.
