Santa Barbara International Film Festival expands to Latino Cinema

Not only did SBIFF host a new summer film showcase “The Wave Film Festival” which just conclude with Claude Lelouch's 'We Love You, You Bastard' winning the Audience Award its inaugural event, but Mickey Duzdevich, the new Wave Film Festival Director, along with SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling, have announced, “Due to its success with over 3,000 attendees, we have decided to return next Spring with a Spanish and Latin America edition, along with the 2nd French WAVE next July. As we approach our 30th anniversary, it's fantastic that we're able to expand SBIFF's vision and programming.”

Says Mickey Duzdevich, "The Wave was a huge success and left patrons with a new joy for French cinema. It was a delight to bring the culture of France to our own Riviera and give the moviegoer an enhanced experience. We look forward to the future of The Wave Film Festival and we're excited to share the beauty of cinema from all over the world.”

The Wave Film Festival

"We Love You, You Bastard" (Salaud, on t'aime) is Claude Lelouch's 44th feature film. French rock icon Johnny Hallyday plays Jacques, a retired war photographer attempting to live a peaceful life in the Alps. With a new girlfriend, Nathalie, he appears content, but his old friend Frédéric, played by another singing idol, Eddy Mitchell, knows better. There is a little matter of four daughters, each one from a different conquest, each one estranged from him, and each leaving their shadow on Jacques’ emotional life.

Realizing that reconciliation is the thing Jacques craves most, Frédéric, a doctor, concocts a little lie to convince the daughters to visit their absentee father. Well, not so little. In fact, it’s a really big lie, and as the family gathers, as accounts are settled through tears and laughter, the lie gets harder and harder to retract. The luminous lineup of female stars includes a radiant Sandrine Bonnaire.

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival, presented by UGG® Australia, will celebrate its 30th Anniversary January 27 – February 7, 2015. Dedicated to discovering and showcasing the best in independent and international cinema, SBIFF will offer 12 days of 200+ films, tributes and symposiums that range from American indie films to world cinema and everything in-between. With its commitment to cultural diversity and powerful storytelling, SBIFF transforms beautiful downtown Santa Barbara, CA into a rich destination for film lovers, attracting more than 85,000 attendees.
