The Sedona Film Festival presents “Flicks at the Farm — Some “Enchantment” Evening”, a fundraising event being held at the Linda Goldenstein/Bill Lacy Creekside Ramada on Saturday, July 28, catered by Enchantment Resort, featuring a seasonal menu of fresh foods from the area. The event will also include a wine tasting of fine wines from local vineyards.
What do you get when you mix together local fine wines, seasonal food from Enchantment Resort and a selection of award-winning short films? These all add up to another incredible Sedona Film Festival fundraising event called "Flicks at the Farm - Some "Enchantment" Evening," a party being held at the Linda Goldenstein/Bill Lacy Creekside Ramada on Saturday, July 28.
Put on your vineyard attire and enjoy an evening filled with the finest offerings from the Verde Valley, including a wine tasting of fine wines from local vineyards.
The tasting will be a prelude to a sumptuous four-course dinner catered by Enchantment Resort. Executive Chef David Schmidt has prepared a "Fresh at the Farm" menu of fresh foods from the area prepared in a "slow food" manner. An award-worthy seasonal menu will highlight this special event.
Included in the price of a ticket will be a chance to win fabulous dining prizes ... dinners, gift certificates, fine food, wine and more! Plus, a live auction featuring dinner parties, chef's tastings, private parties and much more will be part of the evening's festivities.
"The Enchantment, Chef David Schmidt, all of the local vineyards and growers have come together to make this evening extraordinarily special to benefit the film festival," said the festival director Patrick Schweiss. "They are pulling out all the stops to make this a truly spectacular evening of delicious local culinary creations in a magical creekside ambiance under the moonlight."
The highlight of this benefit for the Sedona International Film Festival will be "cinema under the stars" featuring a selection of short films submitted for this year's festival. Audience members get to be the judges and jury and will cast their votes for which of these films will be included in the 2013 Sedona Film Festival.
"Join SIFF program director, Sagan Lewis, as you rate the films just the way our screening committee rates them ... and the winning film will be featured in our upcoming lineup!" added Schweiss.
"A Taste of the Verde Valley" wine-tasting reception begins at 5 p.m. with dinner starting at 6:30 p.m. followed by the short films and program at dusk.
The event is sponsored by Linda Goldenstein and Bill Lacy, as well as the Enchantment Resort, the Verde Valley Wine Consortium and local growers.
Space is limited to 125 people for this very special event on July 28. Tickets for "Flicks at the Farm - Some "Enchantment" Evening" are $125 per person for Film Festival members and $135 for non-members. The event will also support Hearts for the Hungry: $25 from every ticket will be donated to the charity to help feed the hungry.
