Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

Best Trailers for June 2020

Santa Barbara is covering live from Santa Barbara with pictures and videos.
SBIFF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts and education organization dedicated to making a positive impact utilizing the power of film. SBIFF is a year-round organization that is best known for its main film festival that takes place each year in February. Over the past 30 years the Santa Barbara International Film Festival has become one of the leading film festivals in the United States – attracting 90,000 attendees and offering 11days of 200+ films, tributes and symposiums. We bring the best of independent and international cinema to Santa Barbara, and we continue to expand our year-round operation to include a wide range of educational programming, fulfilling our mission to engage, enrich and inspire our community through film.

In June 2016, SBIFF entered a new era with the acquisition of the historic and beloved Riviera Theatre. The theatre is SBIFF’s new home and is the catalyst for our program expansion. This marks the first time that Santa Barbara has had a 24/7 community center focused on the art of film and is an incredible opportunity to expand our mission of educational outreach. Particularly important to SBIFF is making available high quality learning opportunities for underserved and vulnerable populations. Our programs and reach are more robust than ever before.


30th SBIFF Maltin Modern Master Award Honoring Michael Keaton

Saturday night at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Arlington Theater was a treat for all in attendance.

Michael Keaton, while being celebrated for his body of work, is a wonderfully animated storyteller, regaling the audience with in-depth tales of his experience as an actor.

The evening began with a welcome by actress Andie MacDowell, his co-star from Multiplicity. Throughout the festivities videotaped congratulatory messages played from friends and co-stars Jeff Bridges, Winona Ryder, Robert Duvall and Alejandro Iñárritu.

The evening’s moderator, Leonard Maltin, besides being a highly-revered film critic and historian, has been a moderator and friend of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival for many years. It was with great pride and excitement that Executive Director, Roger Durling, announced that from this night on, the Modern Master Award will be now known as the Maltin Modern Master Award.

Co-star and surprise guest Danny DeVito presented the newly retitled award to Keaton. DeVito spoke of their longtime friendship and collaborative efforts in films Johnny Dangerously and Batman and what fun they have when they get together and it’s surprising they get any work done.

Keaton, obviously delighted to be the recipient of the new Maltin Modern Master Award, was humble in his appreciation, professing what a great night it was and thanked everyone for coming.
