The 53rd Nashville Film Festival will open with The Return of Tanya Tucker the moving new documentary by Kathlyn Horan chronicling the collaboration between Brandi Carlile, Shooter Jennings and Tanya Tucker for the latter’s triumphant return to the stage.

From September 29 through October 5, 2022, Nashville Film Festival (NashFilm) will present more than 150 film screenings, a selection of post-film Q&As and in-depth discussions, and a live in-person Pitch session hosted at United Talent Agency in Nashville. Additionally, the organization announces the launch of FLIX (Film-Led Interactive eXchanges), a screening program that brings festival official selections directly to Metro Nashville Public School students.

With events slated to take place at the historic Belcourt Theater and the Andrew Johnson Theater at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, the festival expands to the greater Nashville area this year with satellite partner venue The Franklin Theatre in Franklin, TN.

Beyond the traditional film festival, which is slated to feature 125 feature-length and short films across every genre, NashFilm will again host events and programs that highlight the many aspects of filmmaking, including: a Screenwriting Competition (September 30-October 6); a Music Supervisors Program (virtual panels, workshops and more, September 29-October 1); the Creators Conference (film industry panels and conversations, September 30 – October -2); and live music performances and new artist showcases throughout the week.
