Adam Boozer and Tim Tewell on the red carpet

Filmmakers Adam Boozer and Tim Tewell have just returned from 15th annual Newport Beach Film Festival in California, where the J&G film WITH A KITE was screened as an official selection.

The festival is ranked by many as one of the top festivals in the US. J&G was honored to have their film selected and jumped at the chance to travel to west coast to take part in the event. 

In addition to meeting numerous great people in the industry and enjoying some incredible parties, we managed to see several inspiring films. Check out a few our favs below

Transient

Queen Mimi

A touching story of an elderly homeless woman who lived in a laundromat in Santa Monica. Zach Galifianakis befriends Mimi and ends up getting her an apartment, but the story is much more than that. The best part was that Mimi was in attendance!


Transient

 

A Year In Champagne

This film was a master class in documentary filmmaking. The structure and pace of the film mimicked the process of making champagne. Patient and beautiful. We had the opportunity to meet the director David Kennard who has created over 100 documentaries.


Transient

Obvious Child

A hilarious romantic comedy starring and based on the comedy of Jenny Slate. The film premiered at Sundance and will no doubt have a successful major release. 


Transient

Glena

We had no idea what we were getting into with this one! This amazing documentary tells the story of pro female MMA fighter Glena Avila. Her determination to turn pro and overcome numerous obstacles in her life was inspirational to say the least. Both the director and Glena were in attendance at the screening which was very cool!
