OVERVIEW
The Napa Valley Film Festival showcases the best in new independent filmmaking and world cinema. Our 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 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:

  • 80 or more new films (narrative features and shorts, documentary features and short subjects, world cinema, student shorts).
  • 200 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.

The first annual Napa Valley Film Festival is set for November 9 – 13, 2011. A fully-interactive festival program guide with details on all film screenings, panels and special events will go live online on or about October 1, 2011.
