The Napa Valley Film Festival is here, and we couldn’t be more excited! From November 8th to the 12th, participate in the annual NVFF and catch any of more than 100 unique films.
Film buffs of Napa: your day has come!
Jennifer Townsend discusses why it was important to make her #NVFF17 Documentary Feature CATCHING SIGHT OF THELMA AND LOUISE. * * * “When I first saw Thelma & Louise I was mesmerized. I saw myself in both of the protagonists. I was on the journey with them. When the film ended, I was in a daze. … Seeing Thelma & Louise marked the beginning of a 26-year journey that has changed my life in ways I could never have imagined.” Watch it at #NVFF17 November 8-12.
The Napa Valley Film Festival arrives every year courtesy of Cinema Napa Valley. They receive more than a thousand submissions from filmmakers, and select around 100 of the best to showcase. The official NVFF website provides schedules, guides, and information about all the showings. From “sneak previews” — The Shape of Water and I, Tonya, to name just two — to indie flicks and from documentaries to shorts: there’s a laundry list of options.
But it’s not just about film.
This wouldn’t be a true Napa event without wine, would it? Over 150 different Napa-area wineries will be representing for tastings across the five days of the festival. You can find them at the “wine pavilion” or the CIA Copia to cap off (…or get started) every day. Unless you’re not into wine, in which case….
There’s no need to stay hungry, either.
