The 49th annual Nashville Film Festival has added five new film screenings to the lineup, including a showing of All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records.
The documentary, directed by Colin Hanks and produced by Sean M. Stuart, follows the rise and fall of former retail giant Tower Records. Founded by Russ Solomon in a small town drugstore in 1960, Tower Records would become a retail industry powerhouse with more than 200 stores in 30 countries. In 1999, Tower Records made $1 billion. Less than a decade later, the company filed for bankruptcy. While most attribute the retail store’s fall to the rise of music downloads and later streaming, the documentary explores deeper reasons for the company’s closure.
The opening night for this year’s Nashville Film Festival will also include the musical documentary Out On A Limb, a behind-the-scenes look at rock star Steven Tyler, told through interviews, first-person narrative, and a live performance at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
The Nashville Film Festival runs May 10-19 at Regal Hollywood Stadium 27. For more, visit nashvillefilmfestival.org
