From November 8 – 12, the Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF) lights up the valley during the most colorful time of year. NVFF features over 120 new independent films, studio sneak previews, and filmmaker Q&A’s in gorgeous winery venues and theaters across the valley.

We are excited to announce that for non-passholders, we’ve made a limited number of tickets available for the Sunday, November 12 screening of Back to Burgundy at the Lincoln Theater. The screening will take place at 2pm. Back to Burgundy is a gorgeous French film as the sole foreign language feature of the festival, with strong and obvious ties to the local wine-making community, francophiles, and cinephiles. Directed by Cedric Klapisch, the film follows three siblings who reunite in Burgundy upon the death of their father and have to grapple with how to carry on with the family winery.

After the screening, audience members will enjoy a lively on-stage conversation between charismatic vintner Jean-Charles Boisset (originally from Burgundy and owner of Raymond Vineyards in Napa Valley) and the Consul General of France in San Francisco Emmanuel Lebrun-Damiens. This special screening and conversation are a rare opportunity not to be missed.

For non-passholders, individual tickets for this screening are on sale for $30 per person. A portion of ticket proceeds will be shared by the film festival with FACS to support cultural exchange programs. Click here to purchase!
