Director of Nashville Film Festival to speak March 20

Stronger Arts/Stronger Cities, a yearlong series hosted by Barnes & Noble at Vanderbilt, will continue Thursday, March 20, at 7 p.m. with Nashville Film Festival director Ted Crockett.

Each installment of Stronger Arts/Stronger Cities features a one-hour interview with leaders from Nashville’s arts community as well as local political leaders. The interviews are recorded for later broadcast on community access channel 19, Nashville Education, Community and Arts Television (NECAT).

The Feb. 13 event is open to the public. Free parking will be available in the 2525 Garage behind the bookstore.

The goal of Stronger Arts/Stronger Cities is to advocate for all forms of art, with an emphasis on the literary arts. Each event is a collaboration among local artists. The backdrop for the evening was a gallery provided by the Tennessee Art League and is part of a yearlong exhibit that will change each month of the series. Flowers are provided by local artist Perri Crutcher of OSHI Flowers, and local theater group KB Productions filmed the event.
