Brenda Lhormer

I grew up in San Mateo, a film lover at a young age, and attended Stanford University (majoring in communications). I have over 30 years of experience in marketing, large scale special event production, PR, business management, and video/film producing. Major career highlights include senior marketing positions at Oracle and Microsoft, and years as an entrepreneur running the Sonoma Valley Film Festival (2002-2008), and creating/managing the Napa Valley Film Festival (2009-2018). Another highlight was producing the feature film BOTTLE SHOCK which premiered at Sundance in 2008 and had a theatrical release that summer. Currently, I am looking to work with passionate, creative, and kind people on projects that bring people together over shared interests and to share stories and experiences; I want to produce programs and events that will be make a positive impact! We (with my husband and business partner) are also in development with our second feature film, DEAR ZOE which we hope to shoot in 2019 or 2020.
