Life in Vine screens to packed theater at Film Festival August 10

Life in Vine screened to an appreciative audience in a packed theater Saturday night, August 10th at the prestigious Wine Country Film Festival in Sonoma, California.

Hailed "one of the top ten cinema celebrations in the US" by USA Weekend, the 2002 Wine Country Film Festival begins July 18th and runs through August 11. Now in its 16th year, the festival is internationally known for its spectacular open air film screenings, and last summer's program featured 102 films from 31 countries, with scores of filmmakers on hand. Among the many participants and honorees were Nobel Peace Prize winner Jose Ramos Horta and Burmese revolutionary leader Robert Ba Zan. Recent festivals presented In Person Lifetime Achievement Awards to Kirk Douglas, Rita Moreno and Richard Harris. Founder and creative director Stephen Ashton promises the most diversified slate to date, featuring Official Selections both in and out of competition from around the world.

Organizers also paired the evening's films with a selection of Oregon wines from the producers in Life in Vine. Highlighting the list was the 1999 Westrey Abbey Ridge, made from the grapes grown in the course of the documentary. "Because the audience could actually taste what was being made on screen in front of them, it was as close to multimedia as wine can get!" declared producer Matt Giraud, who attended the Festival and helped arrange for the wines.
