I grew up in L.A. and moved to Nashville in 1974. For those who have been Nashvillians for that long, it will be easy to understand how a movie lover might deeply appreciate the work of the Film Festival. I look forward each year to enjoying works by filmmakers whose distribution is limited or is not yet in place, and films which I missed in years gone by. As a singer/songwriter, I especially appreciate the exposure to movies about music and musicians. The staff have always been helpful when I've needed assistance. Opportunities to preview films throughout the year are another welcome feature of membership.

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

being exposed to films I would never otherwise have a chance to see.

The film festival rocks! We look forward to it every year and put it on the calendar a year in advance, buy an all-festival passes, and block out the week. Not unusual to view 20-25 films. This year our daughter is flying in from Chicago just to attend the "festie" for the weekend.

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

In addition to a full week of independent films, they offer free screenings of new indies throughout the year.

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

totally enthusiastic and love what they do.

Ways to make it better...

it was easier to select films for the film festival when using your laminate pass so you could select the entire week's films without starting over again and again after each film choice.

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

One thing I'd also say is that...

Having spent a couple of decades in Los Angeles I can appreciate the evolution of the Nashville Film Festival and it's growing impact on the community at large. My Mom actually vounteered in the early years when our festival was known as Sinking Creek, thank you Mary Jane. I crave documentaries but enjoy all genres. 100% of my experiences with NAFF this past 16 years have been positive - from renewing my membership, to attending special screenings, to purchasing tickets online, to attending the festival...I could go on. Suffice it to say, I am a huge fan.

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

watching it grow.

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

considerate, informed and committed.
