The 53rd Nashville Film Festival will return from Sept. 29-Oct. 5 with more than 150 film screenings, a selection of post-film Q&As , in-depth discussions, and a live in-person Pitch session hosted at United Talent Agency.
The Festival opens this year with a red carpet premiere screening of The Return of Tanya Tucker, the new documentary by Kathlyn Horan chronicling the collaboration between Brandi Carlile, Shooter Jennings and Tucker for the entertainer’s triumphant return to the stage. From Sony Pictures Classics, the film world premiered at SXSW earlier this year.
“As one of the country’s longest running film festivals in some of the most important and historic Nashville-area venues, we are proud to present an unforgettable experience with diverse stories from some of the world’s most talented filmmakers, screenwriters and music makers,” says NashFilm Executive Director Jason Padgitt. “We are delighted to deliver the best in the art of film, music and culture to the Nashville community.”
Special guests will be on hand for the Nashville Film Festival’s opening night screening, and event details will be announced at a later date. Festival screenings will be held at the Belcourt, TPAC’s Andrew Johnson Theater, and satellite partner The Franklin Theatre in Franklin, Tennessee.
The Nashville Film Festival has also announced the launch of FLIX (Film-Led Interactive eXchanges), which festival official selections directly to Metro Nashville Public School students.
“I’m beyond thrilled that we are piloting FLIX this year, our screening program for students,” adds Director of Programming Lauren Ponto. “Including Metro Nashville Public School students in our celebration of film is a wonderful opportunity for filmmakers from around the world to connect directly with MNPS students while promoting media literacy and cross-cultural understanding to young audiences.”
The full slate of films and programs selected for the 53rd Nashville Film Festival will be announced in August.
