I first was involved with the festival as a volunteer back in the mid 90's. I knew this was a special festival when I saw the care that went into selecting the films. I chose to stay involved with this festival from that point forward. I had a film in the festival, was on the board and then became board president. So I have seen it from many different perspectives. I have been to numerous festivals and this one is awesome. The filmmaker experience is fabulous and the outreach to the community is tremendous. A+ in my book. I am also a professor of film and this festival has benefited my students by providing excellent workshops.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the quality of films brought to the festival.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Helpful and friendly. They make everyone feel like they are academy award worthy.

For the past four years I have had the honor of being the editor of the Nashville Film Festival's "At Risk" Youth Documentary. Through this process I have seen the world change through the eyes of numerous teens that were given a chance. A chance by the Nashville Film Festival to better themselves through film. They expressed their creativity and were able to become a part of something bigger than they had ever experienced. The amount of volunteering that goes into this project is astronomical and should be duplicated in every city in America! Thank you to the Nashville Film Festival for being such a memorable organization and allowing me to be part of such a life changing project for these kids.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the giving attitude of everyone involved. They truly changed the lives of dozen of kids every year. It is the most rewarding to see the same people coming back every year to be involved with the project.

Ways to make it better...

we were able to do multiple projects at more at risk areas around Nashville!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
