From the opening-night flicker of Mark Osborne’s film The Little Prince to Leonard Maltin’s interview with the delightfully quirky Johnny Depp to Spotlight stars Rachel McAdams’s and Michael Keaton’s charming discourse to scintillating insights from the screenwriter and producer panels, this year’s Santa Barbara International Film Festival has already delivered an excellent array of pageantry — with plenty more to come. As the 31st annual festival approaches its second weekend, take a peek at the following pages for a recap of what was (Shannon Kelley’s Peeps), a look at what is (Ethan Stewart’s ode to early-morning film viewing), a heads-up of what will be (interviews with directors Adam McKay, Lenny Abrahamson, and Tom McCarthy), and actress Rooney Mara talks Carol and working with Cate Blanchett.
