Our first on-location broadcast of Wine Wednesday, and where better than Napa, CA? Felicity and Max made the trek up the coast and attended the ever-so fabulous Napa Valley Film Festival. If you haven't been, you need to go - it's one of our favorites, if not the favorite. Our sponsors for this episode were the Napa Valley Film Festival and Cru Wineries (best wine we tasted during our trip). On this episode, we discuss the Napa Valley Film Fest, but also dive in to how writers and filmmakers should plan and prepare for submitting to the festival circuit when their film is ready for submission. We discuss a whole bunch of other things (like wine), so tune in and enjoy.

You can still enjoy the thrills and chills of this episode, of course, which covers some of our favorite scary movies, rules and tips on how to write the best thrillers, and what makes horror films tick.
