The 17th international vine and wine film festival judged 29 films from 17 countries from 13 to 16 May.

Awards were accepted against a backdrop of shots wine themed films – including birds flying out of a vineyard in the Yarra Valley after being startled by the crack of a bottle of wine being opened.
Pascal Judelewicz (Acajou films) and Gaspard Ulliel received the Trophy for best feature length film and the Prix de l’Imaginarium for fiction to the New Zealand director Niki Caro for “The Vintner’s Luck”.
The film captures the spirit of love and loss, guilt and deception, dreams and passion, sacrifice and gain, devotion and devastation and the cycle and evolution of growing wine portrayed in the book. It was filmed at a château in Beaujolais.
The angel in the film “The Vintner’s Luck” played by Gaspard Ulliel is also the face of the new men’s perfume Blue by Chanel.
The Chanel short film publicity was produced by Martin Scorcese:
Unexpected to see Ulliel in two sensorial roles. My Luck.
