Celebrity Cruises to Sponsor Internationally Acclaimed Sonoma International Film Festival

Modern luxury vacation brand Celebrity Cruises is thrilled
to announce its partnership with the upcoming 18th Annual Sonoma International Film Festival
(SIFF), taking place March 25-29, 2015. Celebrity Cruises is now the official cruise line of the
renowned festival as a sponsor of its year-round special screenings and events.
“Celebrity Cruises is looking forward to sponsoring the Sonoma International Film Festival for
the second year,” says regional marketing manager LaTonya Lawson. She calls it “an amazing
opportunity to view films from over 200 filmmakers from 20 countries.” She concludes, “It’s
film, food and wine at its best!”

 
“We are thrilled to have Celebrity Cruises as our ‘Official Cruise Line’ partner,” shares Kevin W.
McNeely, SIFF’s executive director. “Celebrity is an ideal sponsor of our year-round series of
events such as monthly cinema programs and our annual film festival, because Celebrity’s
modern luxury brand offering with a focus on food and wine perfectly aligns with our festivalgoers’
love of travel and new, exciting experiences. We are delighted to be a part of this
fantastic partnership.”

 
Celebrity’s sponsored films for 2015, Dior and I and Ciudad Delerio, emphasize luxury,
romance and travel. Dior and I offers director Frédéric Tcheng’s inside look at the iconic fashion
house, while Cuidad Delirio, directed by Chus Gutérrez, was filmed in idyllic locales in both
Colombia and Spain. A carefully curated line-up of more than 100 films will be presented
throughout the film festival.

 
At the screenings of Dior and I and Ciudad Delerio, Celebrity executives will distribute gift
bags to surprise filmgoers. In addition, each day, attendees will have the chance to enjoy
giveaways inspired by Celebrity’s luxurious accomodations and award-winning cuisine. These
include a modern luxury gift basket with $50 gift certificates from local Sonoma restaurants,
robes, wine glasses, up to $300 of onboard credit on a Celebrity cruise, as well as Champagne
and special offers for booking Celebrity cruises.

 
The cruise line is also offering a 20 percent discount off film and party passes with the use of
promo code Celebrity20 on the SIFF website (sonomafilmfest.org). During the festival, the
Celebrity Cruises booth will be located in the Backlot Tent, within walking distance to the
screening venues.
