A Year in Port made its world premiere in Providence at the Rhode Island International Film Festival on August 13th. We are proud to announce that out of a crowded field of outstanding films A Year in Port took home joint first place in the category of Documentary Feature. Second unit director James Kennard was in attendance, giving a Q&A after the screening. The festival is the largest public film festival in New England and a qualifying event for the Academy of Motion Pictures, as well as the British Academy of Televsion and Film Arts (BAFTA).
We're pleased to share two great reviews of a Year in Port. Terence Clarke of the Huffington post writes "For anyone who cares about the combination of mind, knowledge, art and basic “feel” that is required to formulate something of pristine quality, this [...] film is not to be missed". At Wine Spectator, James Moleworth says "This film will appeal to novice and serious wine drinkers alike. It will rekindle for some and ignite for others an interest in and love for one of the world's great wines. And that's what a wine movie should do."
A Year in Port will premiere at the Rhode Island International Film Festival, held in Providence, RI August 9th through 14th. The screening is on Saturday August 13th, at 4:45pm at the Metcalf Auditorium in the RISD museum. Tickets will be available soon on Festival Genius, where you can now save it to your calendar.
The film's Second Unit Director, James Kennard, will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening.
