Film Fest-a-rama

With the Film Fest in full swing, more than 700 volunteers are busy keeping everything running smoothly behind the scenes. “I love films and Santa Barbara,” said Parkie Parker (above), a 15-year film fest volunteer veteran. “I enjoy giving back to the city that’s given so much to me,” he added. Angela Bevilacqua (below), who has been volunteering for eight years, rotates to different venues and enjoys the excitement of the event as well as seeing some great foreign films.
