Founded in 1969 as the Sinking Creek Film Celebration, Nashville Film Festival (NashFilm) is one of the longest-running film festivals in the country and one of the most acclaimed festivals in the South. Hosted in Music City, NashFilm attracts enthusiastic film lovers from all across the country and has been praised by film-goers and filmmakers alike for its unique combination of big city festival atmosphere and laid back Southern hospitality.

Our 2021 Festival is committed to presenting a Festival that includes in-person screenings at a variety of venues around Nashville in addition to offering a majority of the Festival films, panels and Q&As online securely through our partner Eventive. Please note that the scope of the in-person portion of the Festival is subject to ongoing federal, state and local public health guidelines. With that said, we are looking forward to our re-imagined 52nd Nashville Film Festival and the continuation of our mission to elevate and honor filmmakers, screenwriters, musicians and artists from around the world.

Nashville Film Festival offers $100,000 in cash and in-kind sponsor prizes to filmmakers with winners selected by industry power players – including studio representatives, producers, and fellow filmmakers.

The winning short films in the Narrative, Animated, and Documentary Short Film Competitions are eligible for Academy Award® consideration without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with the Academy rules.
