In addition to being home to network television series and hundreds of professionals working in the local film industry, Nashville is blessed with one of the longest-running and most respected film festivals in the US—the Nashville Film Festival (NashFilm). Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, NashFilm focuses on its mission “to amplify our collective and individual awareness by bringing the world to Nashville to celebrate innovation, music, and the many voices of the human spirit through the art of film.” NashFilm is an Academy Award qualifying film festival for documentaries and shorts, and it is routinely ranked in the top 10 film festivals in the US.
