Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo and Rachel McAdams will be honored with the 2016 American Riviera Award at the 31st SBIFF. This is the first time the award will be given to three honorees, who will be fêted with a Tribute celebrating their careers, culminating with their powerhouse collaboration in Tom McCarthy’s blisteringly true drama “Spotlight.” The film recently opened to critical acclaim. The date of the Tribute is TBD and will take place at the historic Arlington Theatre.

Johnny Depp is set to receive the newly renamed Maltin Modern Master Award at the 31st annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival, the festival announced today. Previously known as The Modern Master Award the honor was renamed this year to honor the famed film critic who has moderated the event for over 25 years. The award will be presented on Saturday, February 6th at Santa Barbara’s historic Arlington Theatre.

What an amazing evening we had with three remarkable women. We were tremendously honored to present Jane Fonda with the Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film. Thank you to everyone that supported the evening. All proceeds raised will benefit our educational programs.
