The Destination
More than 30,000 people descend on Newport Beach each spring to catch a glimpse of the Newport Beach Film Festival, turning this mellow surf town into something of a Hollywood South for one week at the end of April. When they aren't in the theater, moviegoers find themselves on pristine palm-lined beaches admiring the surfers cruising the harbor, or shopping at Fashion Island, perhaps tucking into a California-fresh meal of yellowfish tacos at bambú Restaurant. If Newport Beach looks like a scene out of a movie, that's because it frequently is.

The Digs
Walk across the marble entryway at the SoCal-chic Fairmont Newport Beach and into your well-appointed guest room, furnished with a king or two double beds draped in Egyptian cotton linens, a 32-inch flat-screen TV with DVD player, and a work desk with chair. All are equipped with high-speed Internet. On-site, you'll find a number of other amenities, including a cabana-lined outdoor pool, two tennis courts, and a fitness facility equipped with a variety of modern machines as well as free weights. After a workout, book a treatment at Amadeus Spa & Salon, named among the area's top day spas by Allure, the LA Times, and other media outlets.

The Diversions
The Newport Beach Film Festival, held this year between April 25 and May 2, features 350 films from 50 countries, featuring 25 spotlights and special events. It's been a staple of the film-fest circuit since it debuted in 1999, showcasing a diverse collection of works—from feature-length to shorts—by both emerging and established filmmakers.

  • "Orange County is the epicenter for the action sports industry, so it's a natural fit for us to take the lead to get the best of action sports filmmaking to the screen."
