The Santa Barbara International Film Festival honored actor, director and producer Robert Redford with the American Riviera Award on Friday evening at the Arlington Theater.

The American Riviera Award is an award SBIFF established to recognize an actor who has had a strong influence on American Cinema. Redford will join an illustrious group of past recipients, including Quentin Tarantino (2013) and Martin Scorsese (2012), Annette Bening (2011), Sandra Bullock (2010), Mickey Rourke (2009), Tommy Lee Jones (2008), Forrest Whitaker (2007), Philip Seymour Hoffman (2006), Kevin Bacon (2005) and Diane Lane (2004).

"To honor Robert Redford with the American Riviera Award is an immense privilege for SBIFF," said Durling. "His fifty-year career - filled with significant achievements both on and off camera - is reason enough for celebration, but his role in ALL IS LOST - one of the best performances of the year - proves that he's an artist that continues to evolve and inspire us."

Redford's early film work includes Barefoot in the Park, for which he reprised his stage role of newlywed Paul Bratter, Inside Daisy Clover, Tell Them Willie Boy is Here, among others. It was his breakthrough role in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid that made Hollywood stand up and take notice. He has since built a distinguished acting career, starring in such notable feature films as The Sting, Jeremiah Johnson, The Way We Were, The Great Gatsby, Three Days of the Condor, Brubaker, The Natural, Out of Africa, Indecent Proposal, Up Close and Personal, Spy Game, The Last Castle, The Clearing and An Unfinished Life.

Redford's directorial debut, Ordinary People won him the Academy Award® as Best Director in 1981. As director, Redford has brought to life John Nichols' acclaimed novel The Milagro Beanfield War, A River Runs Through It and Quiz Show, which earned him yet another Best Director nomination. He earned two Golden Globe nominations (Best Picture and Best Director) for The Horse Whisperer and went on to direct and produce The Legend of Bagger Vance. He's also produced Lions for Lambs (in which he also acted and directed), A Civil Action, How to Kill Your Neighbor's Dog, Slums of Beverly Hills and Motorcycle Diaries, to name just a few.
