This year’s just-announced films include appearances by artists/actors Kris Kristofferson, Dwight Yoakam, and Chely Wright. The festival takes place April 14-21 at the Regal Green Hills Cinemas.

Making its Southeastern U.S. Premiere on NaFF opening night flick is Bloodworth, starring Kristofferson as E. F. Bloodworth, an aging musician returning home to Tennessee to a disgruntled family. He has wandered the world for forty years, leaving behind a wife and three sons. Adapted from the William Gay novel “Provinces of Night” by W. Earl Brown, the movie also stars Brown, Val Kilmer, Dwight Yoakam, Frances Conroy, Hillary Duff and Reece Thompson.
