#SBIFF VANGUARD Eschews the spirit of the festival: Watch the acceptance speech!

Posted by Larry Gleeson

Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams were celebrated for their remarkable roles in Kenneth Lonergan’s deeply poignant Manchester by the Sea and were feted with a tribute at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara Sunday night.

Watch the video as Affleck, Williams and Lonergan share their collective experiences during the course of the past year as they accept the Santa Barbara International Film Festival Cinema Vanguard Award.

I fully expect to see more  “remarkable” performances in the near future from these talented actors!

The Cinema Vanguard Award was created in recognition of actors who have forged their own path – taking artistic risks and making a significant and unique contribution to film. Previous honorees include Rooney Mara, Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, Amy Adams, Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo, Nicole Kidman,Christoph Waltz, Vera Farmiga, Stanley Tucci, Peter Sarsgaard, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Ryan Gosling.
