The Newport Beach Film Festival will takes place April 23-April 30 in several locations throughout Newport Beach. The festival is a place to showcase the talents of cinematographers, screenwriters, and directors of both studio and independent films. Film goers are given the chance to meet the filmmakers.
The films fall into the following categories: Features, Documentaries, Action Sports, Shorts, Family Films, and Spotlight Films.
The work of several Saddleback film students will be displayed at the festival. There are spotlights on different nights on entries from around the world. Films come from places as far away as Australia, France, Asia, and Italy.
The festival supports local non-profit organizations, because of the belief that the medium of film offers new outlooks and possibilities for a better tomorrow.
