JENNIFER ANISTON TO RECEIVE THE MONTECITO AWARD AT THE 30th SANTA BARBARA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 


The Santa Barbara International Film Festival is proud to announce that it will present the prestigious Montecito Award to Jennifer Aniston in honor of her celebrated career, including this year’s inspirational performance in Cinelou Films’ Cake, directed by Daniel Barnz. The Tribute will take place on Friday, January 30, 2015 at the historic Arlington Theatre during the festival’s 30th edition.
 
The Montecito Award was created in recognition of a performer who has given a series of classic and standout performances throughout his or her career and whose style has made a major contribution to film. Previous recipients of the Montecito Award include such luminaries as Oprah Winfrey, Daniel Day-Lewis, Geoffrey Rush, Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet, Javier Bardem, Naomi Watts, and Annette Bening, who was the award’s first recipient in 2005.
 
Aniston’s most recent work includes her moving performance as Claire Bennett in Cake, where she plays a mother in pain over the loss of her child who struggles as she drives away her friends, husband, and even her chronic pain support group. This heart-wrenching story has rightfully garnered awards season buzz, with Aniston having already received SAG and Golden Globe nominations for Best Actress.
 
"Once in a while a performer who we thought we knew gets outside of his or her comfort zone and shows us the unexpected,” said SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling. “When that happens it is cause for celebration – and this is why the 2015 Montecito Award is bestowed upon Ms. Aniston."
 
Jennifer Aniston is a Golden Globe- and Emmy Award-winning actress, thanks to 10 seasons playing Rachel Green on the classic television comedy Friends. The role earned her five Emmy nominations, two SAG Award nominations and two Golden Globe nominations. During hiatus from Friends, Aniston pursued a film career, landing roles in Then There Was You, Picture Perfect, Dreams for an Insomniac, She’s the One, Rock Star, The Object of My Affection (her first of many films with Paul Rudd) and Bruce Almighty. One of Aniston’s most critically acclaimed roles was 2002’s The Good Girl, for which she was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award. With the end of Friends in 2004, the San Fernando Valley native devoted herself full-time to her movie career, receiving critical praise for playing a depressed housekeeper in director Nicole Holofcener’s Friends With Money. Adept at both indie films and studio features, Aniston has starred in such box office hits as The Break-Up, Marley and Me, He’s Just Not That Into You, Horrible Bosses and We’re the Millers. She was most recently seen in Life of Crime. Upcoming films include Horrible Bosses 2, in November, and She’s Funny That Way, directed by Peter Bogdanovich, next year. Aniston made her directorial debut with the short, Room 10. She recently directed one of the Project Five short films, exploring the impact of breast cancer on people’s lives. She is also a producer on Call Me Crazy, a Project Five film premiering on Lifetime in April.
 
The Santa Barbara International Film Festival runs January 27 – February 7, 2015. The Montecito Award will be presented at the historic Arlington Theatre on Friday, January 30, 2015. Tickets are available now and can be purchased through
www.sbfilmfestival.org or by calling 805-963-0023. Festival Passes and Packages are still available and sold exclusively at www.sbfilmfestival.org and 805-963-0023.

SANTA BARBARA SAYS GOODBYE TO LENI FE BLAND

It is with great sadness that Opera Santa Barbara grieves the death of Léni Fé Bland, one of the great philanthropists and supporters of the local music and arts community.



A native of England, Léni traveled widely, living in France and Switzerland prior to settling in Santa Barbara. She grew up in a family where music was highly valued, and she showed her phenomenal commitment to music through her generous philanthropic support to so many local organizations and artists from around the world. More than 1,000 music students have been nurtured by the Léni Fé Bland Foundation, and many of them have kept in touch with her all these years. Among her many activities, Léni served on the Board of Directors of Opera Santa Barbara from 1996-1999. She was a brilliant light, always willing to share her insights and guidance.

Thank you, Léni, for making such a difference in the lives of so many through your generosity and love. You will be greatly missed.
