The 5th Annual Newport Beach Film Festival will take place April 15 - 25 in Newport Beach, California. Newport Beach is located 40 miles south of Los Angeles, on the scenic coastline in Southern California.

This year's event includes more than 120 features, representing more than 30 countries. In addition, more than 200 short films will be showcased, making it one of the largest short film programs within a film festival in the entire nation.

The Newport Beach Film Festival gives you a rare opportunity to purchase tickets to attend a world premiere + after-party of a high-profile movie ... where usually only celebrities, the filmmakers and studio execs are invited to attend this kind of black-tie-optional, red-carpet event. There are a limited number of opening night tickets available to the public ... and these are expected to sell out by Wednesday.

The film festival will open this Thursday night (April 15) with the world premiere of New Line Cinema's Laws of Attraction. Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore star in this romantic comedy from New Line Cinema, which will be released in theaters nationwide on April 30th.

Following the screening, the Festival will host its Opening Night Gala at the Radisson Hotel in Newport Beach. Tickets for Opening Night are $80.00 and include the screening and gala, complete with hosted bar and a sampling of culinary delights from more than 12 of Newport Beach’s finest restaurants.
