Wine and Cinema Lovers: Don’t Miss The Napa Valley Film Festival

Five-Day Event–November 13-17–Brings The Best In Independent Film To Venues Throughout Napa Valley

NV-Film-FestivalThe third annual Napa Valley Film Festival takes place Wednesday through Sunday, November 13 – 17. That’s a great time to visit Napa Valley. It’s mid-fall and also the tail-end of the grape harvest season, when crowds are smaller and the weather is superb.

The Napa Valley Film Festival prides itself on showcasing the best in new independent filmmaking and world cinema. The Festival vision is to build community around the art of visual story-telling. The hope is that viewing films and participating in discussions with filmmakers will fuel lively conversation among friends, old and new, and that those conversations will be enriched with the world-class food and wine of legendary Napa Valley.

Here’s what the Festival organizers say you can expect at this year’s Festival:

  • 100+ new films (narrative features and shorts, documentary features and short subjects, world cinema, student shorts).
  • 250 or more visiting filmmakers (directors, writers, actors, producers) and industry executives… presenting their films, engaging in Q&A sessions with audiences, and participating in interactive panel discussions.
  • A handful of sneak previews of Oscar-worthy end-of-year studio releases for the exclusive enjoyment of our Napa Valley audiences.
  • One or more Tribute(s) to notable film industry figures for outstanding achievements in Directing, Acting, Producing.
  • Juried and Audience Awards in a variety of categories, presented to our winning filmmakers at an Awards Ceremony on Closing Night.
  • Screening venues clustered in walkable Festival Villages in the towns of Napa, Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga.
  • Food & Wine-Tasting Pavilions in each Festival Village.
  • Exclusive epicurean adventures for Festival Attendees and VIP Guests.
  • Kick-off Party, Festival Gala, VIP Lounges, Receptions, Late-Nite Parties, Wrap Party and more.
