Several locals who live in Laguna Beach will be featured in the upcoming Laguna Beach Film Society August Summer Shorts on Thursday, August 18th. This one night film festival will showcase the works of Laguna College of Art + Design student Samantha Willson, long time Laguna Beach resident Galen Thorne, Maggie Frank (with long time Laguna resident Evie Fletcher in the cast), Grant Reed & Kai de Mello Folson, Winston Tao, and Rob McClendon. McClendon's short features Rosalind Russell (Executive Producer) as she leaves her Laguna Beach home and journeys to Nepal, sharing her understanding, democracy, and goats in a story that sees lives changed and shows the impact one individual can create. The screening for these films is at South Coast Cinema, located at 162 S. Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach. The shows start at 7:00 p.m., and a pre-show reception begins at 6:00 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Bank Community Room, located at 260 Ocean Avenue. This event is free to LBFS Members and $20 for non-members. Please click here for more information
