Napa Valley Film Festival

Posted on  October 28, 2013

If you’re looking for things to do in Napa Valley this time of year, The Napa Valley Film Festival is a great choice. The event combines great wine, food and film with the unique backdrop and atmosphere of the Napa Valley.


The Festival’s vision is to  “build a community around the art of visual story-telling, with the viewing of films and discussions with filmmakers fueling lively conversation amongst old and new friends…” 2013 marks the third installment of the event and it looks like it will live up to that goal once again.



At the core of any film-festival are the films of course. This year’s Napa Valley Film Festival will feature 125 films created by 300 filmmakers. The films will be spread out over several venues so you’ll need to check the program guide for the complete listing of film times and locations.

Because of the vast number of films and filmmakers it’s difficult to generalize the films into an overall theme  but according to the Festival’s site there is a thematic “focus on the empowerment of women and girls and on the fight for all people’s to reach their full potential”
