This year’s Santa Barbara International Film Festival has adopted an unusual virtual format. However, the drive-in theater was the only component that remained in-person and retained the excitement and joy of going to a movie. The screenings, which took place in two oceanfront parking lots of Santa Barbara City College, showed dozens of movies produced across the globe over the past week. In this story, we showcase some of the sights at the screening captured by Nexus photographers.
