The Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF) is here! This annual event is a celebration of cinematic story-telling. Each year, new and inspiring artists feature their independent films alongside world-class food, wine, and beer. Nestled in the heart of Napa Valley, this event is remarkable; and one that everyone should see, at least once in their lifetime.
If you are new to the festival or just curious about what to see, here are a few highlights:
- The Films: Here you will witness everything from a competition program to documentaries, screenings and more. Each year the NVFF also includes their exclusive screening of films that have aspirations for Academy Award nominations and Golden Globe recognition.
- Food and Wine: There is no such thing as a Napa Valley event without bold food choices and lustrous wines. There will be over 150 wineries and 50 chefs participating in this year’s event—that is reason enough to stop in and check it out.
- Celebrity Tributes: Think Sundance is the only place you will catch a celebrity at a film festival? Think again. Each year, the NVFF has legendary filmmakers, rising stars and some of the biggest names in Hollywood show up.
- Parties, Events, and More: There are dozens of events that help kick off and keep this party going. There are even a few behind-the-scenes opportunities. From the chance to meet the artists to opening night pool parties and mixers, you will be hard-pressed to find a day without an event worth witnessing.

See what past visitors have to say about their experience:
“Such a great experience. This place is right downtown, and for what you get for your $ is absolutely perfect. Gary, the owner couldn’t have been more helpful, and pleasant to work with. Please understand that most decent hotels in the area are more than double from what you pay here; and the value of the location, cleanliness and customer service was perfect in every way. We would definitely stay here again, and thanks again to Gary for being such an outstanding host.”
“The rooms are very clean and recently renovated. The rooms have a modern chic look. Location is perfect to the Napa Riverfront area.”
“Great place, very clean which is most important to me. Staff was excellent; the guy at the front desk was awesome. He told me all the cool places to check out in Napa, complete with map. I’ll stay here again.”
