The winners of the 2011 Santa Barbara International Film Festival were announced Sunday morning at the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort. [Full list of Santa Barbara Film Festival winners.]

Among the winners was Morgan Neville’s Troubadours, which received the Audience Award. Neville’s documentary offers a portrait of the Los Angeles music scene from the late ’60s to the early ’70s, focusing on the still-popular Troubadour in West Hollywood. James Taylor, Carole King, Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Bonnie Raitt, Kris Kristofferson, Steve Martin, and Elton John are some of the music world celebrities interviewed in Troubadours.

The Panavision Spirit Award for Independent Cinema, "given to a unique independent feature made outside mainstream Hollywood," went to Michael Rymer’s Face to Face, an Australian "courtroom" drama — held outside a courtroom. At a "community conference," a group of people are supposed to decide the fate of a young construction worker who rammed into the back of his boss’ car after being fired.

The Best International Film Award went to Nathan Collett’s Togetherness Supreme, a Kenyan drama based on true events at the time of that country’s 2007 riots, while Alicia Vikander received a Special Jury Mention for her performance as a 20-year-old woman who discovers the power of Mozart’s music in Lisa Langseth’s Swedish-made Pure.
