January 18th Features Special Guest Actor, Writer, Producer John Mawson, Star of “6 Years, 4 Months, and 23 Days”
In partnership with the San Jose and Walnut Creek Short Film Festivals, Jessup Cellars presents a series of short film and wine pairing screenings at our Tasting Gallery in the Napa Valley’s village of Yountville. Running monthly December through March, each gathering will feature four award-winning shorts paired with a Jessup Cellars wine and Chef MikeC’s Wok-Popped Flavor-Infused Popcorn. Special thanks to Sony for screening our featured films with their state-of-the-art 65″ HDTV, Soundbar System and Blue Ray Player.
From animation to comedy to drama, Jessup Cellars promises to take guests on an emotional and inspirational ride through the cinematic and culinary arts. The screenings will be followed by meet-and-greets with filmmakers and the opportunity to purchase wines in support of indie short film projects. Projects will be chosen through, and supported via, crowd funding sites such as Indiegogo.com at the close of the series in March 2013.
