Thursday March 12, 7:08 pm ET
KENWOOD, Calif., March 12 /PRNewswire/ — The 2009 Sonoma International Film Festival celebrates the magic of the movies and the pleasures of wine country during its five-day schedule of screenings and events from April 1st through April 5th, and Kenwood Vineyards kicks the excitement into high gear as a Supporting Sponsor. Kenwood Vineyards “Sonoma Series” Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir Rose, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon will be poured at the Festival’s Welcome Center & Lounge – the “crossroads” of the Festival – all five days and Kenwood’s own celebrity, winemaker Pat Henderson, will make special guest appearances presenting his “Purveyors of Good Taste” seminar.
The 2009 Sonoma International Film Festival will screen 68 independent feature films, short films and documentaries at venues in and around Sonoma’s historic town plaza. This year’s Festival films highlight impressive work by some of today’s best directors and actors, including Mira Sorvino, Jeff Daniels, Elizabeth Perkins, Peter Coyote, Bebe Neuwirth, Lauren Graham, Jason Ritter, Kat Dennings, and Barry Pepper. The Festival will also feature an array of fun events, such as the Gala, the Festival’s Tribute to Bruce Willis (with Mr. Willis appearing in person) and the Awards Ceremony, plus writer, producer and director panel discussions for those interested in exploring the inner workings of the movie industry.
Attendees can enjoy Kenwood Vineyards Sonoma County wines before or after screenings and matching a wine to a movie promises to be fun. Kenwood Cabernet Sauvignon will compliment the complexity of The Answer Man and Kenwood Zinfandel has the rich character to accompany Like Dandelion Dust. Racy Kenwood Sauvignon Blanc is a good match for Speed and Angels. Kenwood Pinot Noir Rose will go well with just about every movie, but especially Story of Wine. Should Bruce Willis pick up a glass of Kenwood, have what he’s having!
Over the past 11 years, the Sonoma International Film Festival has increasingly combined the finest independent films and filmmaking talent with the best in Sonoma County wine, food, art and music, and 2009 marks the third year Kenwood Vineyards has been a sponsor. One of the Sonoma Valley’s most successful and honored wine producers, Kenwood Vineyards makes outstanding premium wines that showcase Sonoma County’s world class vineyards.
