Filmmakers and celebrities alike flock to the annual Napa Valley Film Festival, a celebration of film, food, and wine, happening November 7- 11, 2018. Senior Marketing Manager Emma Steele joins me on “Napa Valley Inside Out” to talk about the festival, which celebrities will be in attendance, a summary of some of the movies, current trends in the industry, and how technology has changed the landscape. We talk about how they choose the 100 movies that will be shown during the festival, the opportunities to meet the 300 filmmakers that will be in attendance, and all the fabulous wine and food events; including, the Festival Gala and Awards Ceremony. Emma walks us through the role of independent filmmakers, what it takes to be accepted into a film festival, and how to find a voice within the space.
