The stars are coming out for this year's Napa Valley Film Festival, Nov. 7-11, and being celebrated in some amazing new films.

Leading actor Alan Cumming (The Anniversary Party, CBS smash TV hit The Good Wife) will be honored at the Celebrity Tribute program Fri. Nov. 9th and will also appear in person with his film Any Day Now on Nov. 10 in Calistoga and a Q&A Session after the film.

Alan Cumming is chameleon-like in both his choice of roles and his ability to inhabit them convincingly. One of the hardest working actors of our time, the Scotland-born Cumming has enjoyed a successful career in film, theater, and on television.

Actor James Marsden (Enchanted, Robot & Frank, X-Men Trilogy) will also be on hand at his year's film festival. He has appeared in a wide range of films over the course of his still early career and continues to carve out a distinctive place for himself in Hollywood. James recently wrapped production on Universal's Two Guns opposite Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington. He also completed production on Lee Daniel's film The Butler where he takes on the role of John F. Kennedy.

RISING STARS
Imogene Poots delivers a terrific performance in A Late Quartet (co-starring Christopher Walken & Philip Seymour Hoffman) playing at this year's Festival. This actress first burst onto the scene in the movie 28 Weeks Later, which was then followed-up with a starring turn in the critically-acclaimed Miss Austen Regrets. Imogen has a wide range of other film credits for someone still so young.

Adam Driver, recognized by the Playlist as one of 10 "On the Rise TV Stars who should break out as Movie Stars." already has an impressive career. He is the lead actor in the acclaimed HBO hit series Girls. Thanks to his layered and brilliant character study on the show, it looks to be the start of some really big things for the actor. Watch for Adam in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln and the upcoming Frances Ha, a huge hit at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals. And catch his charming performance in Not Waving But Drowning, screening at the Festival in this year's Narrative Features Competition.
