If wine tasting won't lure you to Napa, maybe a film festival and hotel deal will.

The Napa Valley Film Festival and the city of Napa have teamed with 22 of the area’s hotels, inns and B&Bs to offer lodging and festival pass savings for those attending the annual event Nov. 7-11. 

All participating hotels are offering a discounted room rate when booked for a four-night stay; deals vary according to the lodging, but the discount can be as much as 20%.

Festival-goers also will save $50 on the cost of the passes with a promo code provided by their hotel. If you book by Sept. 30, an additional $20 discount will apply, bringing the cost of the passes to $180 and $430 for the Pass Plus (which is good for admission to the closing-night ceremony and wrap party, among other benefits).

As a special perk, the first 200 guests (or 100 reservations) are invited to attend the film festival's world premiere of  “SOMM,” a documentary about four sommeliers as they prep for the master sommelier exam. That event will be followed by a red-carpet kick-off party.
