Larry Starke sweeps the sidewalk on Ninth Street on Monday morning. Even though the True/False Film Festival brought thousands of festival goers downtown over the weekend, Starke said the aftermath was not different from any other Monday. "It always takes about five hours to clean up on Monday mornings," he said.

COLUMBIA — A throng of volunteers helped the True/False Film Festival entertain and enlighten thousands of moviegoers over the weekend.

Their jobs, though, didn't stop when the movies did. Many volunteers spent Monday cleaning up after the weekend's festivities.
