Yountville is known worldwide for its wine and food has added another feather to its Hat…film! The Yountville International Short Film Festival (YISFF) returns for the third year, February 6 – 9, 2020 . This is the ultimate in food, wine and short film experience. YISFF is the perfect excuse to get away to Wine Country.

For the third year in a row, the YISFF features an incredible lineup of over 75 short films that are sure to stretch your imagination and change the way you think about short films. Every genre of film will be presented from thought-provoking documentaries and dramatic shorts, to world cinema, comedy shorts, entertaining science fiction/horror selections, beautifully crafted animation, to family-friendly shorts and more.

YISFF will have three viewing venues, each with their own films and events. If you want to take part in the special tasting events make sure to purchase the weekend VIP passes so you don’t miss out! The VIP weekend pass includes access to opening night and the after party.

YISFF is a great excuse to explore Yountville during Cabernet Season. If you are looking for the five star resort experience book a room at Bardessono or Hotel Villagio. If a quiet B&B is more your style Lavender is the perfect place for you. In-between screenings, explore tasting rooms such as intimate Handwritten Wines or RH Wine Vault at Historic Ma(i)sonry. Don’t forget to book reservations at some of Yountville’s amazing restaurants, such as La Calenda by Thomas Keller or locals favorite Redd Wood.  No matter where you spend your time in town, you are sure to fall in love with Yountville.
