The first Laguna Beach Film Festival will take place Friday through March 16 at the Forum Theatre as a benefit for child-abuse prevention programs in South County. Eleven foreign and independent films will be presented by the Laguna Beach Exchange Club, a nonprofit community-service organization that expects to raise about $20,000 for the programs. Officials hope to make the event an annual affair. "We looked for a blend of films," festival organizer Rick Leckey said Friday.

Anyone picking up tickets to the Laguna Beach Film Festival, or who has a question about it once there, probably will end up talking to Craig Hammill, the fest's unofficial jack-of-all-trades. The 22-year-old from Laguna Beach graduated last spring from the USC film school. His short film, "Foot in the Mouth," will premiere Sunday at the festival. He'll also present two seminars, advising how to get a short film in the can. All in all, Hammill's one busy young man.

About a dozen area business leaders and a representative from Chapman University's film department took their first step toward creating a new Orange County film festival after the collapse earlier this month of the Newport Beach International Film Festival. "There is a strong desire," said Bob Bassett, dean of Chapman's film school who met with others Wednesday to discuss prospects of continuing a film festival. "The issue right now is what form [a new festival] will take."

What's it take to make a movie and get it screened? Five Orange County amateur movie-makers with entries in the Newport Beach International Film Festival, which starts Thursday, say inspiration and determination count more than connections or cash--none spent anything close to six figures. And one, David Sperling, spent only $300.

The director of the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art resigned Jan. 1. Citing personal reasons, Barbara Thompson left the volunteer position after serving since April 2000. Thompson plans to work on exhibition installations and curatorial projects. No new director has been named. She will remain an active member of the 22-year-old nonprofit, artist-run co-op gallery. The center was closed in December for refurbishing and repairs.
