Nashville, TN — Nashville Film Festival (NaFF) celebrated its 45th Anniversary this week with an incredible week of film in two locations. For the first time ever, the festival presented more than 250 films from over 50 countries, further cementing its record-breaking year.
“This has truly been a spectacular year for the Nashville Film Festival presented by Nissan. It was our first year with 10 days of film at Regal Cinemas Green Hills and 9 days of events at our outdoor NaFF Cinema at Walk of Fame Park in Downtown Nashville”, shared Ted Crockett, Executive Director of the Nashville Film Festival.
With over 42,000 in attendance between both locations, the festival has exceeded last year’s total festival attendance by over 40%. The free NaFF Cinema at Walk of Fame in Downtown Nashville presented films for 9 days throughout the festival on its brand new 30′ outdoor screen. “We are already planning new and exciting ways to feature films to the public in outdoor settings in the months and years to come,” said Crockett.
