The Santa Barbara International Film Festival offers 11 days of 200+ films, tributes and panels, with a mission to engage, enrich, and inspire people through the power of film.

Feldstein is also slated to star in Richard Linklater's film adaptation of Merrily We Roll Along, though Sondheim fans will have to wait for its release as it just started its 20-year production schedule.
