Two of this year’s best director Oscar nominees — Killers of the Flower Moon’s Martin Scorsese and Anatomy of a Fall’s Justine Triet — will receive the Santa Barbara International Film Festival‘s Outstanding Directors of the Year Award, The Hollywood Reporter can exclusively report.
The tribute, which is sponsored by THR, will will take place at Santa Barbara’s historic Arlington Theatre starting at 8pm on Monday, Feb. 12. It will feature in-depth conversations with the two directors — one-on-one and then together — moderated by yours truly, followed by a special awards presentation.
“We are thrilled to honor two of the most exciting directors working today, a veteran master and a talented maverick,” SBIFF executive director Roger Durling said in a statement. “It’s bound to be an exceptional evening not to be missed.”
