Though the Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF) may not be taking place until this November, now is the time to book for special savings. The Book Early Lodging Promotion offers limited-time special rates and a two-for-one offer on festival passes for bookings made by May 31 at select properties.
Early-bird rates earn travelers savings of up to 30 percent off standard lodging prices, at a variety of participating properties in Calistoga, St. Helena, Yountville, Napa and American Canyon. As an added bonus, many hotels will include two Festival Passes for the price of one, a $250 savings. Passes provide five-day access to screenings, film industry and culinary panels and food and wine events.
The NVFF will take place Nov. 13-17, offering a celebration of film, food and wine in the towns of Napa, Yountsville, St. Helena and Calistoga. One hundred new independent films will be screened, and 300 visiting filmmakers will participate in interactive Q&A sessions as well as intimate events. Festival attendees will also have the chance to participate in film and culinary panels, wine tasting, special events, parties, receptions, dinners and more.
