Founded in 1969 as the Sinking Creek Film Celebration and one of the longest-running film festivals in the country, NaFF is rapidly becoming the best-known arts event in Tennessee and is the biggest, most international film festival in the mid-South.
Each year, NaFF receives submissions of over 1700 features, documentaries, shorts, animated works, and children's and experimental films from all over the world. After prescreening and deliberating, over 200 top entries from all genres are selected for the competition and shown on four state-of-the-art screens throughout the event.
MUSIC FILMS IN MUSIC CITY- Because it takes place in "Music City," it is only natural that part of the focus be on music in films. Some of the most memorable songs in films have been written and performed by Nashville's songwriters and artists. In addition to the many films about music and the Music Films in Music City awards, NaFF presents showcases, workshops, and other events where these songwriters and artists come together with film professionals from Hollywood and around the world to promote collaboration.
DISTINCTIVE AWARDS- In conjunction with the First Amendment Center, NaFF gives the prestigious Freedom in Film Award to an individual who has personally and through his/her work in film exemplified the spirit of the First Amendment. Past honorees have included Robert Redford, Susan Sarandon, Harry Belafonte and independent filmmaker Charles Burnett. Maverick independent film producer Christine Vachon was the most recent recipient.
