LOS ANGELES, CA , USA, February 20, 2024 / — On February 15th, the American Cinematheque honored Helen Mirren as the 37th recipient of the American Cinematheque Award. Kevin Goetz & Screen Engine received the Power of Cinema Award Presented by Hill Valley at this prestigious event.

Since 2019, Château Malartic-Lagravière has been the proud wine sponsor of the event. Once again, this year, the A-list entertainment industry had the opportunity to enjoy Château Malartic-Lagravière’s wines, including Château Malartic Red, 2013, and White, 2019, at the cocktail reception and the gala dinner during the tribute.

Château Malartic-Lagravière is honored that Helen Mirren signed a special engraved magnum of their 2016 red vintage to benefit her charity organization of choice, Meals on Wheels West. The magnum will be displayed at the winery, along with the signed magnums of previous American Cinematheque honorees Ryan Reynolds in 2022, Scarlett Johansson in 2021 and Charlize Theron in 2019. Since 1986, the American Cinematheque Award has been presented annually to an extraordinary artist currently making a significant contribution to the art of the Moving Picture.

Château Malartic-Lagravière is no stranger to the silver screen. Last year, they were the official wine sponsor of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The iconic wine family was also involved in the Tribeca Festival last year, and can be seen on screen in Emily in Paris and Death on the Nile.
