Now in its tenth year, Variety‘s partnership with the Santa Barbara Film Festival celebrates the artisans who have showcased the most innovative work of the year in their craft.

“With writers and actors on strike for the better half of 2023, it was artisans who held the entertainment industry up. They showed their vitality to the filmmaking process and championed their respective films,” said Variety’s senior artisans editor Jazz Tangcay. “At Variety, we cherish the craft and are passionate about hearing their stories. This year, there was an embarrassment of riches in the world-building of films, and it’s wonderful to partner with Roger Durling, the festival’s executive director, to celebrate the incredible accomplishments of these artists. I look forward to spotlighting them in Santa Barbara next month.”
