Napa Valley Film Festival Announces First Slate of Celebrity Tribute Honorees for Sixth Annual Event

Celebrity Tributes include Zoey Deutch, Chloe Grace Moretz and Glen Powell. Additional Tributes to be announced in September

Napa, California (August 25, 2016) – The sixth annual Napa Valley Film Festival (NVFF) is pleased to announce its first three honorees that will receive Tributes during the sixth annual edition of the festival to be held November 9-13, 2016. Additional honorees will be named at a future date.

The highly anticipated Celebrity Tributes, saluting the highest level of cinematic achievement by established players and rising stars, returns to the Lincoln Theater in Yountville on Thursday, November 10 as part of the festival’s line-up of special events. The festival will salute Zoey Deutch (Everybody Wants Some!!, Why Him?) and Glen Powell (Everybody Wants Some!!, Hidden Figures) as Domaine Chandon Rising Stars. Chloe Grace Moretz (The Equalizer, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) will receive the Raymond Vineyards Trailblazer Tribute. This year’s program will be hosted by Access Hollywood’s Natalie Morales and Kit Hoover who will conduct intimate on-stage conversations with the honorees after presentations of film clips from each honoree’s work.

“We are thrilled to share our hospitality, food, wine, and our appreciative film-loving audiences with these fantastic actors,” said NVFF Co-Founder/Director Brenda Lhormer. “Chloe was an easy choice as our Trailblazer. She impresses us with the risks she takes and her positive maverick mentality. Zoey and Glen are on their way to greatness and epitomize Rising Stars. We look forward to hosting them throughout their stay at the festival.”

Past honorees include Kevin Costner, Alan Cumming, Bruce Dern, Colin Farrell, Judy Greer, John Lee Hancock, Felicity Jones, Jeremy Jordan, Zoe Kazan, Keegan-Michael Key, James Marsden, Michelle Monaghan, Evan Peters, Miles Teller, John Travolta, and Jeffrey Wright.
