This year’s Festival features an array of never-before-seen experiences, including the New Power Lunch: Celebrating Women Making a Difference on Saturday, November 16, 2013. Presented in collaboration with MORE Magazine and benefitting the Napa Valley Film Festival’s Education and Outreach Program, join NVFF at 500 First Street from 12:00 – 2:30pm to celebrate women making a difference.

Start the morning off at 10:00am with your choice of two spectacular films. View either Anita, which tells the notorious story of Anita Hill who testified against Clarence Thomas and paved the way for equality in the workplace, or Sewing Hope, which follows the story of Sister Rosemary and her school for young women formerly abducted and used as sex slaves in Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army.

After the screening, attendees will enjoy a delectable feast prepared by Catherine Bergen of C Casa. Wines will be provided by Women of the Vine, an organization focused on building a community of women winemakers.

The luncheon will honor both Sister Rosemary, Sewing Hope, and Oscar®-winning director, Freida Mock, Anita, for their noteworthy accomplishments. Both women will be in attendance.

This is sure to be a sensational and inspiring afternoon. Individual tickets are available for $250 per person & $2500 per table.
