Each spring, I usually attend and cover the Newport Beach Film Festival. As with just about everything this year, the pandemic has affected many film festivals, including NBFF. The festival is now underway virtually. This year geography isn’t an issue for people who’d like to see the films that have been chosen for NBFF.
Like most film festivals, NBFF has sections for short films and feature films. Besides the obvious categories of narrative and documentary, NBFF also has a group of films about Art, Design and Architecture, Environmental films, Orange County local interest, Culinary cinema, and family films. You can check out the selections and buy tickets ($10 for individual films) at https://nbff2020.eventive.org/films.
During the next several days (the films are available between now and Oc. 10) I’ll be taking in a few of these films. Like all businesses during the pandemic, NBFF needs support. You can support them by picking a film or two that look interesting and watch something different than al the stuff on Netflix, Prime, Disney+, and the other streaming services.
