Last night, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival presented Christopher Nolan with its highest honor, the Modern Master Award. Some members of the press were invited, and Kristopher Tapley of In Contention live tweeted the entire evening. The journalists weren’t able to get much The Dark Knight Rises news out of Nolan, but they did get him to confirm that shooting will begin this May. Nolan explained he wanted to walk away from Batman after The Dark Knight, but felt he needed to finish the story. “For me it’s all about endings. We’re telling Bruce Wayne’s story”, Nolan said.
