Santa Barbara International Film Festival Exclusive: A.I. Comes To Life In Clip From Sci-Fi 'Uncanny'

28 January 2015 7:18 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At the moment, cinema seems to have artificial intelligence on the brain. Later this year, Alex Garland will pull the curtain off "Ex Machina," but he's not the only one presenting a tale where technology and humanity come together. At the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, director Matthew Leutwyler will premiere "Uncanny," and today we have an exclusive clip from the film. Starring Mark Webber, David Clayton Rogers, Rainn Wilson, and Lucy Griffiths, the film follows David Kressen, a roboticist who seems to have created the world's first "perfect" artificial intelligence, which he names Adam. But soon enough, it starts to exhibit startling and strange behavior. In this clip, we see some of what Adam can do, as technology reporter, Joy Andrews, learns about its many special and distinct qualities, from athletics to intellect. "Uncanny" will have its first screening at Sbiff on Saturday, January 31st at 7 Pm, at Metro »

‘McFarland USA’ To Close Santa Barbara Film Festival: Full Lineup

8 January 2015 9:48 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival has unveiled its 2015 line-up which includes films representing 54 countries, 23 world premieres and 53 U.S. premieres. The U.S. premiere of Niki Caro’s McFarland USA will close out the 30th fest. Based on the 1987 true story and starring Kevin Costner and Maria Bello, the film follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California’s farm-rich Central Valley, as they give their all to build a cross-country team under the direction of Coach Jim White (Costner), a newcomer to their predominantly Latino high school. The unlikely band of runners overcomes the odds to forge not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well.

The festival runs from January 27-February 7.

'McFarland, USA' will close out 30th annual Santa Barbara Film Festival

8 January 2015 9:32 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A self-acknowledged "showcase for Academy Award frontrunners," the Santa Barbara International Film Festival is often overlooked for the actual films that earn it festival status. An amalgamation of international discoveries and ’merica’s circuit highlights, the Sbiff curates a week of best-of-the-best to pair with their star-praising. The 2015 edition offers another expansive selection, bookended by two films that aren’t on any radars just yet. Sbiff will open with "Desert Dancer," producer Richard Raymond’s directorial debut. Starring Reece Ritchie and Frieda Pinto, the drama follows a group of friends who wave off the harsh political climate of Iran’s 2009 presidential election in favor of forming a dance team, picking up moves from Michael Jackson, Gene Kelly and Rudolf Nureyev thanks to the magic of YouTube. The festival will close with "McFarland, USA," starring  Kevin Costner and Maria Bello. Telling the 1987 true story of a Latino high school’s underdog cross-country team, »
