Newport's 20th Annual Film Festival kicked off last night in style at the Fashion Island courtyard. The Opening Night's film was followed by a gala soiree at the Edwards Big Newport Theatre. Executive Director, CEO, and Co-Founder, Gregg Schwenk, graciously greeted members of the press and is admired by all as it’s no small feat to be at the helm of this happening for the past 20 years.

Due to the generosity of numerous sponsors Korbel champagne, Tito’s vodka, Cape Line cocktails, Peroni beer, and Nespresso were just a few libations being passed around. Food highlights included Mastro’s, Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Boathouse Collective, and Pats Texas Style Pit Barbecue! Live music by Side Deal as well as special guests filled the evening with high energy, followed by a DJ for guests getting down on the grassy dance floor.

This year’s Festival line-up promises to be their most dynamic. From April 25th - May 2nd, 350 films from over 50 different countries will be screened, alongside 25 spotlights and special events. This is a week-long happening where creativity and storytelling converge in one spot. It's a unique event which has grown exponentially through passion and hard work and deserves to be celebrated by all.
