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.

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.

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.
