With the Newport Beach film festival sticking close to home this spring, the owner of Captain Blood's Village Theater in Orange--one of the festival's most popular venues the past four years--is striking out on his own. Todd Blood will host a gathering for filmmakers and film buffs with the inaugural Southern California Film Festival from May 11 through 20. Events will be held at Blood's twin-screen theater and three others in North County.

Five weeks after the conclusion of the reconstituted Newport Beach Film Festival, Orange County's other independent film showcase will make its debut Thursday in Orange. The Southern California Film Festival--eight nights of screenings at A Captain Blood's Village Theatre--will offer 45 short films and features as well as film showings at so-called "open-mike nights," during which filmmakers are invited to bring short films that weren't formally submitted to the festival.

Movie buff Todd Blood is undertaking a formidable task--breathing life into a six-screen Santa Ana theater complex that had been muscled out of business by flashy megaplexes. The Brea resident today will reopen the movie house at MainPlace/Santa Ana mall, seven weeks after the struggling AMC Entertainment chain shuttered it. The site was one of the poorest performers for AMC, which also operates a 30-screen cinema at the nearby Block at Orange, now the Southland's highest-grossing movie house.
