The Eighth annual Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF) lights up Northern California’s premier wine country destination during the most colorful time of year: November 7 - 11, 2018. NVFF has established itself as the ultimate celebration of film, food and wine while becoming one of the region’s most memorable experiences for cultural travelers.
Archer Hotel is proud to be a supporting sponsor this year, as well as an official screening venue. The hotel’s pop-up theater will showcase an array of independent movies over all five days: narrative features, documentaries, short films of all kinds and a handful of selections from the new “Verge” program (a separate group of cutting-edge films for the more-adventurous moviegoer).
Thursday’s festival highlights include the Celebrity Tributes Program at Lincoln Theater in Yountville, as well as Variety’s 10 to Taste — a food and wine event featuring a celebrity chef judging panel.
New to the festival this year is the Down-Valley Festival Hub at Feast It Forward in downtown Napa, which includes the Monogram Demonstration Kitchen, Box Office, Artisan & Wine Pavilion and WanderLuxxe Filmmaker Lounge. Over the course of five days, the festival’s Demonstration Kitchen will showcase 13 culinary demos featuring filmmaker and chef collaborations.
NVFF’s 2018 schedule includes wine tastings, the annual Festival Gala, a brand-new drive-in theater at the Napa County Fairgrounds in Calistoga, the Rising Star Showcase honoring Hollywood’s young talent and other unforgettable events unique to Napa.
Archer is offering 15% discounts on rooms throughout the festival, and those staying at the property also enjoy $100 off Pass Plus tickets, available here.
A full program lineup of all venue schedules, as well as filmmakers attending, will be announced in September. Visit nvff.org for more information. See you at the movies!
