Folklight Film Club is a wine club-inspired membership experience around making a movie. Members attend unique events, get behind the scenes, and influence the movie being made. It’s the world’s first farm-to-table film.
Membership enrollment is open now, space is limited, and enrollment closes in the fall. Sonoma, Napa, Marin, and Mendocino residents are eligible for membership.
Table Read: The table read is the first time a screenwriter hears the script they’ve written read out loud by a group of actors who may or may not end up in the film. This is one of the important first steps of creating a narrative feature film, and you get to be there from the beginning.
Red Carpet Oscar Party: Get red carpet ready and gather with club members to celebrate movie making’s biggest night. Games, red carpet interviews, wine, and surprises will be some highlights of the evening.
Panel Discussion with Filmmakers & Cast: Fresh after wrapping principal photography on your film, get together with the cast and creative team to hear about the process and ask anything you’d like to know.
Gallery Show: Enjoy art in multiple mediums inspired by themes from your film, mingling with members, and wine.
Member-made Short Films: Get in front of or behind the camera and make a short film! Guided by Folklight professionals and our student crew, you make a short film in one day.
Folklight Member Shorts Festival: Enjoy an evening of short films created by you!
Film Inspo Concert: An interactive, 360° concert featuring re-imagined moments and music from beloved films. More details than this would ruin the surprise.
