One of my favorite local events is the Napa Valley Film Festival, otherwise known as NVFF14. This year, the NVFF14 will take place November 12-16 at several unique venues in Napa, Yountville, St. Helena and Calistoga. Not only do we get a chance to see some of the year’s best films, but the festival is also a chance to rub elbows with entertainment industry elite! Here are some of the faces I’m looking forward to seeing:
On opening night at the Uptown Theater, the Festival Gala will be aflutter with stars including both Mike Meyers and Kevin Costner who will be in attendance to support the their new films. I’ve heard great things about Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon directed by Myers and Black or White featuring Costner. The film screenings will be followed with a Q&A.
Costner is also set to attend this year’s Celebrity Tribute Program on Friday, November 14th. He is being honored at the event along with Michelle Monaghan and Jeremy Jordan. I can’t wait to hear the in-depth interviews hosted by Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush.
Have you heard about Shailene Woodley’s film The Fault in Our Stars? On Sunday, November 16th you’ll get a chance to see that film and listen to a Q&A with the celebrated actress.
If you want a good laugh, then you must attend the hilarious 2014 Artist-In-Residence Narrative Feature mockumentary Teacher of the Year. Actor Matt Letscher will be attending in support of his work.
In all, the NVFF14 expects 300 participating filmmakers. Passes and tickets are on sale now! If you are a film aficionado or just love good movies, I suggest you purchase a 5-day access pass. If you also want to attend the star studded parties, then you’ll want the Pass Plus. Anyone interested in going for it and receiving the full VIP experience must purchase the Patron Experience.
By the way, if you will be attending the festival from out of town, you might first want to download Winery Geek, what I consider to be the best mobile app for wine tasting in California.
