Imagine a Night of Award-Winning Short Films Paired with Jessup Cellars Wine & Artisan Popcorns Created by Chef MikeC
The Jessup Cellars 7th Annual Art House Short Film Series premieres Saturday, January 11th at its Tasting Gallery in Yountville, California. The winery and art gallery pairs award-winning short films from the San Jose Int’l Short Film Festival and features Q&A with special guest filmmakers and producers. The magic of the short film experience is elevated by pairing eachfilm with a Jessup Cellars wine and a Chef MikeC wok-popped, flavored-infused popcorn, e.g., Fried Chicken & Mash Potatoes Popcorn paired with Chardonnay.
Individual screening date tickets are $55 general, $45 members, plus a $135 Locals’ Season Pass for all four screenings.
Over the past six years the series has become a sell-out hit with both locals and visitors to the Napa Valley. The four date series screens January 11th, February 8th, March 14th and April 11th with doors opening at 7pm. Tickets are available online at screening partner CellarPass.com.

The 3rd Annual YISFF will feature an incredible lineup of more than 100 imagination-stretching short films from across the globe, shown over four days.
“As a film buff, we look forward to our winter short films series with great anticipation and expectation. The format is so dynamic and immediately rewarding,” said Tracy McArdle, General Manager for the Good Life Wine Collective, which includes Jessup Cellars and Handwritten Wines. “Within a short series of frames, these award-winning stories unfold and close…and then it’s on to the next film, wine and popcorn pairing. It makes for a perfect date night!”
