Vanderbilt will host screenings during Nashville Film Festival Sept. 28–Oct. 4


The Nashville Film Festival (NashFilm) is coming to Vanderbilt University. 

The festival is a globally recognized nonprofit organization and cultural event presenting the best in world cinema, American independent films and documentaries by veteran masters, up-and-coming directors and first-time filmmakers. With Academy Award–qualifying status, the Nashville Film Festival celebrates innovation, music and the many voices of the human spirit through the art of film. NashFilm discovers, elevates and honors filmmakers, screenwriters and musicians from around the world while engaging, connecting and strengthening the Nashville community. 

Founded in 1969, the Nashville Film Festival is one of the first film festivals in the United States; it will host its 54th festival Sept. 28–Oct. 4. 

This year, Vanderbilt University is partnering with NashFilm to provide two of the  festival’s venues, Rothschild Black Box Theater and Sarratt Cinema. This partnership, and the screening of the documentary Black Barbie and the short film Le retour des femmes colibris/Return of the Hummingbird Women, is made possible through the Office of the Vice Provost of Arts and Libraries.
