The Fund for Santa Barbara held a reception for the filmmakers whose work was nominated for the FFSB's 2012 Social Justice Award. The Fund partners with SBIFF to sponsor these awards, for films that "use their art to address critical social justice issues." This is the 13th annual award sponsored by the partners, and will be announced on the last weekend of the Festival.

The Teen Press was on hand to talk with the filmmakers who attended. Here Dia and Andrew quiz director BRYAN HOPKINS on his Gulf Coast oil disaster film, "Dirty Energy."
