    As part of our ongoing school outreach program, we asked two outstanding high school students to attend the closing night of the wonderful Newport Beach Film Festival and report back on their experiences.  This is the first of two reports by Derek and Pauline.  Derek reports here.  (editor)

    Closing Night at the Newport Beach Film Festival 

    The 15th Annual Newport Beach Film Festival was a cinephile’s heaven.  
    The renowned Lido Theatre served as the venue for the night. As I walked to the theatre, I quickly realized that its fame is well deserved. The theatre exudes a classic aura with its clean 1930’s architecture. I felt like I had travelled back to the Golden Age of Hollywood, with staples like the “Grand Marquee” in the front and the classic movie art ranging from films “Gone with the Wind” and “Casablanca”.
