It’s more like Movie City this week in Music City. Film-Com is going on now through April 20, and the Nashville Film Festival (NaFF) runs April 19-26. Both events offer opportunities for music and film to merge.
NaFF Music Supervisor Mixer—Tues., April 24, 6:30-8:30PM at Belcourt Taps & Tapas. Tickets are $75 per person. Scheduled to attend are music supervisors Evyen Klean (Hemingway & Gellhorn, Game Change); Tricia Holloway (Middle Men, Honey 2); PJ Bloom (Glee, American Horror Story); Jenee DeAngelis (Cold Case, Breaking Pointe); Michael Freeman (Music Producer/Ogilvy & Mather); and Jojo Villanueva (American Reunion, Prom). This is an opportunity for professionals to meet and exchange information. Organizers emphasize this is not a pitch session, so please don’t bring CDs, bring business cards instead. Email ticket requests to Todd Farrell at [email protected] and he will return calls in the order received.
Film-Com Film/TV Songwriters Forum—Tues., April 17 at Douglas Corner with performances by Greg Barnhill, Jeremy Lister, Aaron Espe, Regie Hamm, Rick Elias, Ronnie McDowell, and others who have had music placed in film or TV.
