Opening Night Gala
Fashion Island welcomes you to the Newport Beach Film Festival's Opening Night Gala presented by Pacific Sales.
Don your evening best and begin your Gala experience with a "Toast to 20 Years" sponsored by Korbel Champagne. Then, enjoy our hosted bar by Tito’s Vodka and Peroni while keeping yourself hydrated throughout the event with LIFE WTR.
Explore a range of tastings from 25 of Orange County’s premier restaurants, including Fleming's Prime Steakhouse, Red O, Fig & Olive, and Great Maple. Top your night with treats from Le Pain Quotidien, Nespresso, BToffee and Atomic Creamery and don’t miss our exclusive performance on the #NBFF main stage by the band Side Deal with surprise guests.
Tickets to the Gala can be bought on their own or with an Opening Night Film ticket.
