Colin Farrell & Brendan Gleeson to Be Honored with Cinema Vanguard Award


Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson will be honored with the Cinema Vanguard Award at the upcoming Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF), taking place February 16, 2023. The event will host an in-person conversation about the actors’ careers, including their most recent side-by-side appearance in Martin McDonagh’s The Banshees of Inisherin.

Roger Durling, Executive Director of SBIFF, had the following to say about the event: “Gleeson and Farrell’s individual careers have been exemplary, and their collaboration in two McDonagh films show us two actors perfectly in sync — in both pathos and humor. They’re a joy to behold and quite a treat for us to get to celebrate them together.”

The Cinema Vanguard Award recognizes actors who have forged their own path in the industry by taking artistic risks. Those who are honored with this award have made a significant and unique contribution to film. Previous honorees include Benedict Cumberbatch, Carey Mulligan, Michael B. Jordan, Laura Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ryan Gosling, and more.

Passes and tickets for the 2023 Festival are on sale now here. Stay tuned for updates.
