Festival Will Spotlight the Regional Premiere of “Do You Remember Me?”
Followed by Celebration of Italian Culture, Fashion and Music

Newport Beach, Calif. (Saturday, April 18, 2015) – On Tuesday, April 28th 2015 the 16th annual Newport Beach Film Festival will present its Italian Spotlight, an evening celebration of Italian cinema and culture. The event will feature the Orange County premiere of the highly acclaimed film, Do You Remember Me? (Ti Ricordi Di Me) (2014), followed by a festive post-screening gala.
