The Napa Valley Film Festival, November 7-11, is a rewarding event to spend some time at. The Festival is a sizeable event with nearly 100 screenings at multiple locations over the five-day event around the Napa Valley, but that is only part of the happenings. Also, on calendar are awards ceremonies with celebrities, lavish parties, wine tastings with high quality wine from worldwide locations, over 50 participating chefs and restaurants with headliners, and more. There is glitz, but the Festival is also educational; a place to make acquaintances, generates reflective moments, and keeps touch with the latest in cuisine and wine. The NVFF is an event to place your annual calendar for consideration. See their website for information.
