The April 28 to May 5 Newport Beach Film Festival promises to be the biggest in the event's 12-year history, drawing some 400 films from 47 countries. And because of construction in Newport Beach, Costa Mesa will for the first time play a leading role. Due to the remodeling of Edwards Island Cinemas, about 70% to 80% of the festival's screenings will take place at the Starlight Triangle Square Cinemas, Todd Quartararo, the festival co-founder, said Thursday. "It's still the same great program and the same great offering of 400-plus films," Quartararo said, adding that more of the festival's post-events will be at Fashion Island and Lido Village to keep the focus on Newport Beach.

For her most recent project, the 17-year-old Newport Beach resident instructed a handful of actors to place cardboard containers over their heads as a way to represent conformity. "I'm playing with symbol- ism," said Whitney, a junior at Orange County High School of the Arts. "The film promotes the idea of dreaming."
