We have to say Sonoma International Film Festival is an outstanding festival. We had a great time and the films are excellent. Sonoma is a beautiful, completely live-able, little town and the people are extremely gracious.
Me: The people are so happy!
Co-producer: They’re within walking distance of the best wineries in the country. Of course they’re happy!
Smart, fun audiences who are so curious about the filmmakers. Great parties, (more wineries) and their awards? ha, ha…get this – magnums of wine are their statues with the award hand written on the bottle in silver ink. Score! Wish we had scored an “award” like that, yet we are content with our five awards.
We stayed outside of town in a guest house with a view that will knock your socks off. Hills, vineyards, trees, more hills, green grass, flowers everywhere, a few cows, a few sheep – truly – extraordinarily beautiful you can barely believe it’s real. We’ll post photos as soon as we can — and we’ll post our wine notes, too. Food, wine and film — so perfect. Be sure to put it on your calendar for 2010. You will have a magical week.
