If you are joining us from out of the area, you have a wide variety of lodging options. You’ll choose from luxury resorts to quaint Bed & Breakfasts to vacation rentals, and also select where in the valley you’d most prefer to be located. Many of the valley’s lodging properties offer special festival rates and packages. Wherever you decide to stay, always let your hosts know you are here for the film festival. You never know what doors that might open. Make your lodging plans early as rooms fill up quickly.

Tips on Choosing Where to Stay

Calistoga at the top of the valley is wonderful for its laid back atmosphere (new age meets old west) and unique festival venues; but it’s also a long way from some of the higher level special events taking place in Yountville and Napa. St. Helena – 9 miles down valley – is home to the charming Cameo Cinema (our only venue out of 12-13 that is truly a year-round movie theatre) and has a perfect Main Street feeling about it. Yountville – another 9 miles down valley – is perfect for the epicurean, being home to the French Laundry and more Michelin Stars per square mile than anywhere else on the planet. It’s also the location of our largest venue, the Lincoln Theater on the grounds of the largest Veterans Home in America. The Celebrity Tributes, Awards Ceremony and Festival Gala all take place at Lincoln. And Napa – another 9 miles south – is the primary working city serving the valley and home to some of the festival’s bigger venues and events.
