About Us

The 2012 Fresno International Film Festival – Viña de Oro promises to be a delightful one.  This year the Fresno Latino Rotary Club has joined forces with Club Latinoamericano del Valle Central and in conjunction with California State University of Fresno, has accepted the task of getting great movies and presenting them during September 18 thru the 22.  Five days full of activities which will include movie screenings, documentaries and workshops.

We are very appreciative of all the sponsors and the support we have recieved from our community and we hope that we can fullfill your expectations as well as we did last year or perhaps even better.  Our main goal is to be able to make of Fresno the mecca of Film Festivals and attract an international audience to our Valley.

We should like to hear from you as we develop this concept since our main desire is to entertain and expose you to the finest movies and documentaries.  Any suggestions as well as critism will be always appreciated.

Once again, thank you and please enjoy:  Viña de Oro,
