I am very excited and looking forward to the 11th Annual 2010 Newport Beach Film Festival. The wide variety of programs that from all around especially focusing on the topics like the Environment. What I find most impressive is the high quantity of Short Film programs especially with a good percentage from students. The additional backdrop of Fashion Island near the coastline makes for a perfect location for this festival. I am very anxious to get started and drive up the Interstate to meet and greet all of the hard working people behind the scenes plus look out for me walking around the Edwards Island Theaters with a huge smile on my face.
