Article Title: Nashville Film Festival Kicks Off Annual Event on April 6
Article: Now in its 10th year, the Nashville Film Festival (NaFF) will hold its annual competition for International, independent, local, and student filmmakers beginning on April 16. More than 27,000 film and music enthusiasts and industry insiders will attend the 10-day celebration at the Regal Green Hills Cinemas and other locations.
  Films cross all genres from drama, comedy, animation, and family to experimental, foreign, documentary, and shorts with a special emphasis on music in film. Events during the festival will include panel discussions, industry seminars, and workshops.
  Because Nashville is known as "Music City," one focus of the festival is the "Music Films in Music City" section. In addition to films about music, attention to music in films, and the Music Films in Music City awards, NaFF presents showcases, workshops, and other events bringing songwriters, artists, and music industry insiders together with film professionals to promote collaboration.
  Another unique program presented by NaFF is its program for teens who face special challenges associated with poverty. A team of film professionals help the teens create their own film and star in a documentary about the process. The teens write, block, act, and edit their work and then walk the red carpet, give media interviews, screen their film and answer questions following their screening.
  Nashville Film Festival, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, also provides year-round outreach efforts with programs for senior citizens, challenged teens, and high school and college-age filmmakers. These programs include lectures and screenings at elementary, middle and high schools, colleges, museums, libraries and community centers.
  The oldest running film festival in the South and one of the oldest in the United States, NaFF is also an Academy Awards qualifying festival continues to be one of the city’s most exciting and signature events in the arts.
