Newport Beach Film Festival’s Environmental Film Call for Entries


The 2015 Newport Beach Film Festival will spotlight over 350 films from around the world, including short and feature length narrative, documentary, animated and student films that will compete for a series of Jury, Festival Honors and Audience Awards.

In addition to film screenings, the Festival hosts premiere galas, question and answer sessions with filmmakers, and an industry seminar series with topics that range from screenwriting and directing to editing and film music.

The 16th Annual Newport Beach Film Festival announces Call for Entries for its Environmental Film Series, a curated program of films designed to raise awareness of important issues affecting our environment. The films cover a wide array of "eco" and "green" topics, including water quality issues, sustainability, natural resource preservation, animal protection, garbage issues, the effects of globalization, recycling, vegetarianism, the adverse effects of industrialized agricultural practices, activism and more. Since Newport Beach is home to a wealth of environmental groups and natural wonders (from the beaches to the bays to the bird estuaries), the Newport Beach Film Festival is the ideal venue to present environmental films. Community partners for the program include Peter and Mary Muth Interpretive Center, Newport Bay Conservancy, Orange County Parks and Surfrider.




The 2015 Newport Beach Film Festival will run from April 23rd to April 30th, 2015.
