The 17th annual international Nevada City Film Festival kicked off Thursday night at the newly remodeled Stone House tavern at the bottom of Broad Street.

Festival-goers were treated with a sneak peak of this year’s film festival lineup and a screening of the 1902 French silent film “A Trip to the Moon” with a never-before-heard score performed live by Wax Wane Gibbous, an all-star line up of musicians that included Randy McKean, Callum McKean, Murray Campbell and Wes Steed.

Outside folks sipped on wine, got their photos taken and got a chance to experience a virtual reality experience.



A virtual reality and multimedia pavilion will be set up at the festival’s headquarters at the Miners Foundry from 3 to 11 p.m. Saturday.

The festival runs through Friday where a best-of-the-fest event will take place at dusk in Pioneer Park.
