Get Your Film Fix at the Second Annual Napa Valley Film Festival

The Second Annual Napa Valley Film Festival is almost here! November 7 through 11, 2012 you can be part of one of the best film, food and wine festivals the industry has to offer.

Here are some of the reasons you shouldn’t miss out:

  • Over 12 screening venues
  • 100 films
  • 250 filmmakers
  • 125 wineries
  • 30 restaurants and top chefs

And that’s just a sample of all the entertainment this film festival has to offer!

The Festival will kick off with the world premiere of the documentary “SOMM” on November 7.  “SOMM” is short for sommelier; the film follows the journey of four young men as they try to pass the sommelier exam, which has one of the lowest pass rates in the world.

You can also enter the “Are You the Next Sommelier?” contest on the Downtown Napa Facebook Page. One winner will receive two Festival passes and the chance to attend a screening of the “SOMM” Documentary Film.


If you’re in the mood for contests, check out the “Movies to Dine For” Foodspotting contest created by the Napa Valley Film Festival team.  To participate, just download the Foodspotting app, visit the participating restaurants and order the dish or drink they’ve selected to feature for the contest. The contestant who “spots” the most menu items during the five days of the festival will be named “Master Foodspotter” and will receive a prize package of gift certificates to a host of Napa Valley Film Festival partnering restaurants.

Downtown Napa Foodspotting contest participants include the following:
