Nashville Film Festival presented by Nissan Co-Closer ‘BIG EASY EXPRESS,’ featuring Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Old Crow Medicine Show and Mumford & Sons, to Screen for Free at Centennial Park

The Nashville Film Festival (NaFF) presented by Nissan will bring “BIG EASY EXPRESS” — a documentary and concert film featuring Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Old Crow Medicine Show and Mumford & Sons — to the big outdoors, for free and open to the public, on Thursday, April 26 at 8:00 p.m. at the Centennial Park Bandshell. The encore screening, co-presented by the Americana Music Association and the Nashville Scene, will follow the film’s co-closing night slot at the Festival, which wraps that night the Regal Green Hills Cinemas.

Centennial Park is located at 2600 West End Ave in the Vanderbilt/West End area of Nashville. The Bandshell is situated closest to the 25th Ave. side of the park. Attendees are welcome to arrive at the park by 7:00 p.m.. A program comprised of the Nashville Film Festival presented by Nissan’s award-winning shorts will begin at 8:00 p.m., and “BIG EASY EXPRESS” will begin at 9:00 p.m. Blankets and/or lawn chairs are recommended as there is no seating at the park.

Directed by Emmett Malloy (“Out Cold,” “The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights”) “BIG EASY EXPRESS” documents the musical journey of three bands on one train over thousands of miles of track through six cities. In April of 2011, indie folk heroes Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Nashville’s Old Crow Medicine Show and Britain’s acclaimed Mumford & Sons climbed aboard a beautiful antique train in California, setting out for Louisiana on a “tour of dreams.” Part road movie and part concert film, “BIG EASY EXPRESS” bears witness to the birth of a new musical era. With poignancy and beauty, Malloy documents these incredible musicians as they ride the rails and wow the crowds, from Oakland … to New Orleans.

Nashville Film Festival presented by Nissan takes place April 19-26 at the Regal Green Hills, with events at various locations throughout the city. For more information, and tickets, please visit NashvilleFilmFestival.org.
