SBFF lineup: DeGruy, ‘No,’ ‘Singin’ in the Rain’

Fest to include retrospective of docu filmmaker, Warner archive pics

The 28th Santa Barbara Film Fest will screen films from 49 countries during its Jan. 24-Feb. 3 run, along with a retrospective of docu filmmaker Mike deGruy and digitally remastered films from the Warner Archives.

Opening night pic is the Jason Bateman-starrer “Disconnect,” while the centerpiece gala is Pablo Larrain’s “No,” a Cannes favorite and Art Cinema Award winner. Fest will close with Stateside preem of Rowan Athale’s “Wasteland,” a revenge-themed heist thriller.

“As we deliver the 10th edition of SBIFF under my helm, I feel this year’s festival offerings are the most varied, mature and fun we’ve ever had,” said SBIFF exec director Roger Durling in the Tuesday release.

Panels kick off Jan. 26, with Variety’s Peter Bart moderating the “Directors on Directing” confab. Additional panels include screenwriting, producing and creative women working in the biz.

“Dial M for Murder,” “Singin’ in the Rain” and “The Shining” comprise the digitally restored classics from the Warner Archives. DeGruy retrospective includes screenings of “Hawaii: Islands of the Fire Goddess,” “Incredible Suckers,” “The Octopus Show” and “Tempest of the Deep.”

Thesps Ann Dowd, Elle Fanning, Ezra Miller, Eddie Redmayne, Omar Sy and Quvenzhane Wallis will be feted with the Virtuosos Award, for their distinguished performances this year.

Other kudos to be handed out include the audience award, independent film, international feature and docu.
