Christopher Nolan receives the Modern Master Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival

On Sunday, lynda.com was the presenting sponsor of the Modern Master Award to Christopher Nolan at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in honor of his body of work. Leonardo DiCaprio, who starred in Christopher’s latest film Inception, presented the award. Christopher talked, among other things, about his upcoming Batman and Superman film projects (both films will be release in 2012). We couldn’t be more proud to get behind such a remarkable event.

As Lynda mentioned in her earlier post, we will also be hosting recordings of the director’s, producer’s, women’s, and writer’s panel discussions online at lynda.com, too, like we did last year. What’s so remarkable about these panels is that we get to see how films are made from a variety of perspectives from some of the best in the business.

Here are just a few photos from the Modern Master Award event:
