Press Pass LA attended the presentation of the Cinema Vanguard Award to Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio presented by Jonah Hill at the Arlington Theater as a part of the Santa Barbara Film Festival. We spoke with Scorsese himself about what the festival means to him and why he doesn’t watch his films!
We also caught up with “Wolf of Wall Street” Producer Emma Koskoff about what it was like working with Marty and Leo. We were thrilled to speak with many of the filmmakers and talent whose projects premiered at the festival that evening including Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff for “Across Grace Alley”, Philanthropist Katie Cleary for her documentary “Give Me Shelter”, and the team behind the Spanish Language Film “Shades of Blue.”
Watch the video to hear what these talented stars had to say!
