The 38th Santa Barbara International Film Festival ceremony was held this February on the 28th, where the Awards were announced and given. “A Man” was put in the spotlight for the night, after it was awarded the Jeffrey C. Barbakow Award for Best International Feature.
It seems like both the original work and the movie adaptation of “A Man” are on a roll, and are not ready to let go of the spotlight yet, as the movie is nominated in 12 different categories for the Japanese Academy Awards. The ceremony is planned on the 10th of March this year.
