NEW! Newport Beach Film Festival Knows How To Tell A 'Bedtime Story'

newportbeachfilmfestivalThe Newport Beach Film Festival launched an online video celebrating its 15th year with an unusual bedtime story told by the festival’s longtime projectionist to his young daughter. The father's bedtime story begins innocently enough, with a princess living in a faraway castle. Dad adds some artistic nuances to the tale that, to the viewer, sound a lot like movie plots. It's not every day that a man falls in love with his operating system, tattoos clues about his wife's killer to his body and searches for a killer in Fargo, N.D. There's even a "Pulp Fiction" reference, so it’s evident that dad loves movies. After going overboard with his dramatic storytelling, dad realizes that his daughter is already asleep, probably working on her first nightmare of the night. "15 years under the influence," closes the video, seen here, created by RPA and directed by Tom Routson of Tool. The festival will run throughout Newport Beach and Costa Mesa from April 24 to May 1.
