Filmed in HD by three-time Emmy Award-winning Director Jason Brown, Twilight in Forks – The Saga of the Real Town, documents the story of the rainiest city in the U.S. – Forks – and the untold tales of its hidden history, culture and mysticism.

Are there truly vampires and werewolves in and around Forks? Hear from the real people living their lives in the town Twilight fans know and love. Fans will meet the Chief of Police and hear as he recounts the meal he cooked for Stephenie Meyer, the Forks Outfitters’ employee who gets mistaken for Bella, the vampire transplant who plays the real-life role of Alice, hear self-described Jacob’s grandfather tell the legend of how the Quileutes descended from wolves, and many more of the people and places, including the Cullen House, Swan House and police station, that make Forks the perfect setting for the Twilight Series.

The Twilight in Forks DVD is a must-have for Twilight fans young and old. For more information, visit Twilight in Forks on the Web at: http://www.twilightinforks.com.
