I just wanted to point out that there are other music-themed films screening at the Newport Beach Film Festival no mentioned in this article. One film that I am intimately familiar with, being the director, is "Randy Parsons: American Luthier." It's a short documentary film about a guitar maker whose client list includes Jack White, Jimmy Page, and Joe Perry.
The guitar had been Parsons' identity since he was a child, but after attending college to study music, he knew he would never make a living as a musician. Randy Parsons gave up the guitar, and then one day he had a vision of how it would come back into his life.
So, in addition to the awesome feature-length music-themed pictures being shown, please be sure to check out the many short films that will screen at the festival. Newport Beach Film Festival really does an outstanding job selecting films and putting together their outstanding event.
