Napa Valley Film Festival: Film, Food, Wine
USA- Napa Valley, CA | Sep 29 2012 | (23:12:04 - EDT)
Napa Valley Film Festival showcases the best in new independent filmmaking and world cinema. Their vision is to build community around the art of visual story-telling, with the viewing of films and discussions with filmmakers fueling lively conversation amongst old and new friends … and those conversations being enriched with the world-class food and wine of legendary Napa Valley.
The Napa Valley Film Festival takes place on the second full weekend of November each year (this year Nov. 7-11).
This period represents mid-fall and the tail end of Napa Valley’s gorgeous harvest season. The festival runs from Wednesday evening through Sunday night – what we like to refer to as an extended weekend, the best kind.
Each year’s festival includes the following core components:
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.
