Nashville Film Festival Celebrates 50th Anniversary With Star-studded Opening Weekend


Compelling and engaging panels, sell-out screenings, and film industry from around the world made up the first four days of the Nashville Film Festival 50th Anniversary. Opening night red carpet included the cast of ‘Born In The Gig,’ ‘Foster Boy,’ Jeezy, and Bubba Sparxxx. Day two welcomed the Berry family who came to support the world premiere of the ‘Chuck Berry’ documentary by filmmaker Jon Brewer. HBO’s Len Amato panel, Johnathon Shcaech and Jessica Barth’s #METOO panel, and an all-star comedy panel were just a few highlights from day three. The girls from NashFilm’s Living Reel Project debuted their song and short created for the festival, and ‘Who’s The Girl? The Ashley Cleveland’ had a sell-out crowd on day four.

Nashville Film Festival continues this week with Lahna Turner and the world premiere of ‘What’s Eating Ralphie May’ tonight at 6 pm. ‘The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash’ also screens at 6 pm.
