Nashville Film Festival Returns in September with Tanya Tucker’s Doc

The Nashville Film Festival has announced big plans for its return this fall, including a highly anticipated documentary, new venues and an expansion into Williamson County.

The 53rd annual event will run from September 29 to October 5 and will feature more than 150 film screenings, as well as panels and Q&A sessions.

Continuing a model adopted last year, screenings will be held at several venues in the Nashville area. This includes the Belcourt Theater as well as two new additions: TPAC’s Andrew Johnson Theater in downtown Nashville and the historic Franklin Theater in downtown Franklin.

This year’s festival will open with a red carpet premiere of “The Return of Tanya Tucker.” The documentary had its world premiere at SXSW earlier this year and chronicles the making of Tucker’s acclaimed 2019 album “While I’m Livin'”.

The festival will also launch a new FLIX (Film-Led Interactive eXchanges) program, which will offer screenings of selections from the festival to students at Metro Nashville Public School.

A full lineup of films will be released later this year, but if you’re already on board, VIP badges are on sale now. More information at
