Weapons-Free Policy

The Newport Beach Film Festival has a strict weapons-free policy. If you see something, say something. Please call 9-1-1 if you see a person with a weapon, whether or not it may be legal for them to carry one.

NBFF is a private event and attendees are not permitted to carry weapons of any kind, including, without limitation, concealed or displayed firearms, or anything that may be construed by NBFF as a weapon onto the premises of any official NBFF event. NBFF reserves the right to require anyone who violates this policy to immediately leave the premises of any official NBFF event, and to deactivate and/or revoke the Credentials of such Participants. Each Participant agrees that this policy is in force, and agrees to comply with this policy, regardless of whether signs prohibiting weapons are posted at the premises of any official NBFF event.

Our city, county, and state law enforcement agencies have been diligent about ensuring public safety while implementing the law, and NBFF will continue to work with these agencies to minimize its impact on our event.
