The longest-running and largest film festival in the south, the 48th edition of the Nashville Film Festival runs Thursday, April 20 to Saturday, April 29 at its new location the Regal Hollywood Stadium 27 & RPX at 719 Thompson Ave, Nashville 37204 (or 100 Oaks as we locals like to call it). The Festival includes over 200 films, including close to 100 narrative and documentary features, plus shorts, panels, music events and parties. This being Music City, there’s a special emphasis on Music Films — the Music Films Music City Category is one-of-a-kind on the festival circuit. The Festival also shines a bright light on Tennessee-made films and filmmakers, with its Tennessee First opening night and multiple shorts collections. You can start digging into the list of films here and the schedule here.
As part of NowPlayingNashville.com’s ongoing media sponsorship of the Festival, we’ll be offering a limited batch of free tickets each day to films screening the following day. This is a great opportunity to catch some incredible films from around the world and save a few bucks. Here’s how it works: each day, hopefully by 5 p.m. (things get hectic at the Festival and at NowPlayingNashville.com … you’ll have to give us some leeway), we’ll post several films on our special Nashville Film Festival page located here. Go ahead and bookmark that page now and check it daily. We’ll also post updates to our Twitter and Facebook pages. If you don’t find your way to the ticket through those methods, you can always click on the graphic placed prominently on our home page. Clearly, we want you to find these tickets, so by all means, go ahead and take advantage of them! Tickets to film go fast, though, so we always recommend you buy tickets to films you hope to see instead of waiting to see if they’ll be offered for free. Extremely popular films, as you can probably guess, are very rarely offered.
Once you get to the page and find a film you want to see, simply click through the “Click Here” prompt, and print out your ticket to take to the Festival. That’s it. Easy.
