Despite the rain, 15th edition of the Santa Barbara Intl. Film Festival opened last weekend with record crowds. One of the highlights was Lili Tomlin’s presentation of a lifetime achievement award to Richard Pryor. Pryor watched clips of his perfs and pics with his daughter Rain while Paula Poundstone and other peers praised him. Meanwhile, Anthony Hopkins received the Modern Master Award and discussed his career with Leonard Maltin. The fest ends Sunday.
