"In my hometown now, in the Napa Valley, we have a theater called The Cameo, which is a beautiful single-venue theater. There's no doubt in my mind that the movie theater experience as a place to thrill to and enjoy great cinema is a central part of the community, and that idea of replacing that with any form of ‘Home Video’  (or) multiplexes - which are basically fast-food restaurants with a sideline of showing movies - is not what I think the exciting future of MOVIE-GOING will be.

NAPA VALLEY
FORK2
FILM FESTIVAL

The 2024 Napa Valley FORK2FILM Festival debuted at the Cameo Cinema from March 14-17 for an annual four-day celebration of the best in culinary, wine, and agriculture films from around the world. 

 

From culinary classics to Oscar nominees, we have curated a line-up of films that focus on food’s power to bring people together; they are about family and culture; and they’re about artistry and sustainability.

Attendees enjoyed epicurean food and wine experiences, filmmaker Q&As, and more. See you next year!

CINEMABITES


The St. Helena Farmers’ Market features films that celebrate the farmers, vendors, chefs and vintners who are responsible for the food sitting on our plates and the wine in our glass.  They pair these films with culinary treats created by a range of chefs from Micheline starred restaurants to local farm-to-table eateries and food trucks. Funds support their educational programs.
