Music in the Movies Event at Nashville Screenwriters Conference

Nashville Screenwriters Conference is gearing up for its 14th annual event at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville on June 1-3. The three-day open-to-the-public conference brings Hollywood’s top writers, producers, directors, managers, agents and other studio executives to provide aspiring film, TV and music individuals an opportunity to learn and explore the inner-workings of Hollywood.

The event consists of an optional panel workshop and luncheon called Music in the Movies, set for Sat., June 2 at the Country Music Hall of Fame. The event was founded by 821 Entertainment Group President Anastasia Brown (Footloose, August Rush, Taken). The panel will feature advice from top music supervisors for songwriters, composers, artists and publishers hoping to tap into the world of song placement in television and film. This year, Brown has tapped music supervisors Julia Michels (Sex and the City 1&2, The Blind Side, The Devil Wears Prada), Frankie Pine (Army Wives, GCB, Magic Mike), Randy Spendlove (President of Music at Paramount) and others still being added.

Carnival Music is also hosting a Silverscreen Event with dinner, drinks and in-the-round performances at the Loveless Barn. Some of these events require separate tickets and are not included with conference registration.
