Ben Affleck to Receive the Santa Barbara Film Festival’s Modern Master Award

A wonderful choice for a wonderful film festival. The SBIFF is one of the fests worth attending on the west coast because of its Executive Director, Roger Durling. It is his passion and knowledge about films, and the Oscar race, that drives the fest. It was announced yesterday that:

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival, will honor director, producer and actor Ben Affleck with the Modern Master Award at the 28th edition of the Fest, which runs January 24 -February 3, 2013, it was announced today by SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling. The Tribute will take place on Saturday, January 26, 2013 at the historic Arlington Theatre.

Affleck hit it out of the park this year with Argo, his second film that will hit the $100 million mark (it’s already at $85 million), and his best reviewed film so far.

    No matter how many times you print it, Sasha, Argo still will not be Ben Affleck’s second film to hit $100 million. It will be his first.
