The 34th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) concluded the final installment last night of its annual tribute series with the presentation of the Cinema Vanguard Award to actor Michael B. Jordan, for his work in two of the year’s most critically acclaimed, culturally significant and record-breaking box office hits: Black Panther and Creed II.

The Cinema Vanguard Award recognizes actors who have forged their own path, taking artistic risks and making a significant and unique contribution to film.

Jordan made quite an entrance—arriving with his guests in a Mercedes-Benz sprinter van. His fans crowded up against the barricades around The Arlington Theatre, eagerly anticipating his arrival; and when he finally climbed out of the van, he was greeted with impassioned cheers that continued to follow him throughout the night.

During his introductory remarks, SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling told the audience, “I have to say, in sixteen years of running this festival, I have never heard or seen a reaction like the one outside when Michael B. Jordan showed up.” He went on to say that Jordan “personifies the star for the 21st century” and called the actor’s collaboration with Ryan Coogler “something for the ages.”

The evening began with an in-depth, one-on-one career retrospective conversation moderated by Scott Feinberg from The Hollywood Reporter. Upon taking the stage, Jordan received a standing ovation for which he was deeply appreciative.

At the conclusion of the conversation portion, Jamie Foxx presented Jordan with the award.
