Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke will collect the American Rivera Award at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF), marking the first time two people will share the honour.

Arquette and Hawke, riding high on awards kudos for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, will attend a tribute on February 5.

“To honour Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke with the American Riviera Award is an immense privilege for SBIFF,” said executive director Roger Durling.

“Both have careers filled with significant achievements both on and off camera including their roles in Richard Linklater’s Boyhood – which features some of the most unique performances of the year in a project they worked on for over a dozen years – and proves that they’re artists that continue to evolve and inspire us.”
