All Five Directing Nominees Hit Santa Barbara Film Festival

Scott Feinberg moderated a panel of the five directors up for the prize this year. He did a one on one with, and then had them all on stage together. Again, you can see all of their weaponized charm in action as they all talk about their work, their influences, etc. Here are photos and video.

Re the videos: I can only barely stand watching these, tbh. Oscar season wrings the life out of you and I just can’t imagine how hard it would be to do what these guys do, going from show to show, win to win. But you might enjoy these. Obviously I love all of them but the publicity machine for Oscar can get to be a bit much for all involved. Bravo to them. It’s almost over. I love what they say. They’re all good interviews. You can see them all here. I have a few down below.
