Last Thursday, 9 February, the Newport Beach Film Festival gathered actors and those behind the camera to award prizes to British stars and its creative industry. Wait, is there a film festival in Newport, Wales? No, this is the Newport Beach film festival (NBFF) that has been running since 1999 in California – sunshine and home to Hollywood as well as this interesting festival. This is the first time that NBFF has held an awards ceremony in London. It also has impeccable timing given it was also BAFTA weekend. The prestigious event was held in the Bulgari Hotel.

What is clear is the NBFF is championing variety and diversity in the films that are shown in the festival as well as the the awards it handed out last Thursday evening. This is definitely a festival that is one to watch.

The 2017 Newport Beach Film Festival will be held from 20 – 27 April 2017.

She is as picky about what she watches as what she eats. She watches movies alone and dines solo too (a new trend perhaps?!). As a self confessed scaredy cat she doesn’t watch horror films, even Goosebumps made her jump in parts!  Follow her on @liquidmarmalade
