The 2019 Kirk Douglas Awards dinner was a unique entertainment night to remember at the Ritz Carlton Bacara Hotel in Santa Barbara as Martin Scorsese walked the red carpet with presenters Leonardo DiCaprio and Al Pacino. The 35th Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) honored Scorsese's “The Irishman” with the 14th annual Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film benefiting SBIFF’s free year-round educational programs.

Scorcese generously spent time on the red carpet answering questions from the press and posing for photos on the red carpet as did Al Pacino, who is starring in “The Irishman” along with Robert DeNiro as Frank Sheeran, Joe Pesci as Russell Bufalino, Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa, Anna Paquin as Peggy Sheeran, and Ray Romano as Jimmy Hoffa's lawyer. I saw the film at SBIFF Rivera Theatre this week and it is a masterpiece in directing and acting – a film not to miss. Pacino's performance as Jimmy Hoffa is stunnig and Ray Roman as Hoffa's lawyer was fantastic!

Belvedere Vodka sponsored the 14th Annual Kirk Douglas Awards for Excellence in film. Guests raised their Belvedere cocktail glasses in a toast to Martin Scorcese. Each year Belvedere Vodka designes signature cocktails for this celebration and this year they included a Belvedere Collins and Belvedere Eastern Standard that were as divine.
