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.
We are so late in posting this — oops! Three-Fifty played in the Lake County Film Festival. We’ve heard great things about the festival and the way they take care of their filmmakers. We were busy here on the West Coast and just couldn’t get away. A BIG THANK YOU! to Nat Dykeman and the whole team for having such great taste and choosing THREE-FIFTY to make sure your audience got to laugh!!! http://www.lakecountyfilmfest.com/
During the Aspen ShortsFest last year, we met Johnathan Browning and Leslie McManus. Nice, smart people. I had to leave before seeing their film, THE JOB, but saw it a couple of months later in Los Angeles. See THE JOB if you can. What a hoot! It’s a 3 minute crowd pleaser. A of this entry, their short won 11 awards…and I can’t even count how many festivals. It’s a machine! Couldn’t have happened to nicer people.
