Santa Barbara International Film Festival Executive Director Roger Durling has been honored at the Anti-Defamation League’s 40th annual dinner and celebration.
The Black and White Ball event took place at the Fess Parker Doubletree hotel by Hilton last Sunday night. It celebrated the ADL’s mission to “secure justice and fair treatment to all.”
The evening featured an interview with Durling and Lynda Weinman, the founder of Lynda.com.
Durling was praised for standing up against bigotry and hate and for his efforts to champion films that foster mutual understanding and respect.
