Napa Valley Film Festival 2014


Napa Film Festival

Popcorn, candy and soda are practically essential for watching movies. But what if you could enjoy a film while sipping fine wine and tasting exquisite cuisine? If that sounds too good to be true think again, because it’s exactly the kind of experience that the Napa Valley Film Festival provides.


The ultimate film, food, and wine experience

The Napa Valley Film Festival is a great way to get the best of Napa Valley’s atmosphere, while attending a world-class film festival. The festival starts on November 12th and wraps up on the 16th with the villages of Napa, Yountville, Calistoga and St. Helena each hosting event venues. 


Plan for a great time

Though film screenings are at its core, other events including celebrity tributes, a festival gala, industry panel discussions and the awards ceremony also contribute to making the festival what it is. Since its events are spread out across Napa Valley, planning is key to making the most of your experience. Help decide what you want to see, and get time and location details by downloading the festival guide.


Like the villages they’re located in, the Napa Valley Film Festival’s individual venues each bring a unique personality, atmosphere and specialty to the table (pun intended). Be prepared for a very different experience as you go from theaters to pavilions to wineries and even art houses while you enjoy the many events the festival has to offer.
