The Napa Film Festival is nearly a week of events where different directors and actors present their movies to judges and at the end of the Festival the best movies and actors and such get awards for their great work and presentations.  This year, 2016, the Festival ran from November 9th- November 13th. During these few days the Festival was filled with different celebrities from all over the country.mark-brendalhormer_lead

The event does cost money for a ticket and they aren’t cheap, however the Festival is an amazing opportunity if you do ever get the chance to go. A pass for the whole time, all five days comes to a grand total of $295. However, if you want to go for only four days the total is $275. Still, as this may seem like a lot for locals and other people who wish to enter the festival, these films have been made for the festival and many have never been seen before.

If you want a pass for all five days with special edition service and access to every place in the festival you will have to pay a total of $645…which is a lot of money, but then again the festival only happens every so often so missing this opportunity would be something less to brag about.

imagesGoing back to it’s origins, the Napa Valley Film Festival started in 2011 and has been going on ever since with special visits from celebrities like Jennifer Laurence, Shailene Woodley, and other well-known stars today.

Harvest 8th graders got an amazing opportunity to actually see two documentaries at the festival, all expenses paid. The 8th graders got to see two films, one called “The Rebound” about a basketball team who play in wheelchairs, and another film about oceans.

The students were excited and hopefully students learned something new and other people who did attend the festival, had a blast.
