Each November, the Napa Valley Film Festival brings the indie screen to the mainstream for six days. With 120 new independent films, sneak previews of award season contenders, panel conversations, culinary demonstrations, wine experiences and special events, the Napa Valley Film Festival is the hottest ticket in town November 10 through November 15.

Ticket holders will enjoy visiting multiple Napa Valley Film Festival theaters in the walkable villages of Napa, Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga. During the festival, visitors can mix and mingle with nearly 300 filmmakers, enjoy 150 wineries in the wine pavilion or during the wine stroll, and sample the culinary creations of 30 talented chefs. For the ultimate Napa Valley Film Festival experience, visitors can purchase a pass at one of the three levels – Festival Pass, Pass Plus or VIP Patron Circle. With the pass, patrons can attend as many screenings and panels as they’d like, enjoy culinary demonstrations and wine-tasting every afternoon, and participate in all kinds of exclusive “passholder perks” throughout the valley without purchasing tickets in advance. The higher-level passes give festival-goers all of the benefits of the lower-level pass AND access to special events, receptions with the filmmakers, and meet and greets with celebrity guests.

With all of this excitement coming to Napa Valley, you will want to book your trip soon! Rooms are filling up quickly. To plan the perfect stay, visit the Hotels and Bed & Breakfast pages on
