Napa Valley Film Festival – Film, Food & Wine Showcase

The Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF) and the CIA at Copia will present its inaugural Film, Food and Wine Showcase, four nights of films and culinary experiences Nov. 10 to 13.

After two years of virtual films, the festival said its upcoming screenings of 2022 films and tributes reflect some of this year’s most talked-about films and performances.

In addition, the event will include culinary events complementing the food and wine culture evoked in each film. The four-day event will be produced by Jeromy Zajonc, who recently joined the NVFF team after spending 13 years at the California Film Institute, where he helped produce and popularize the Mill Valley Film Festival and DocLands Documentary Film Festival.
