How to Fest

It’s Easy

NaFF is a public, 10-day festival.  Come for one or more days — or attend just one event at a time.


We’re located at Regal Green Hills — lower level.  This is where we’ll screen more than 200 films in 10 days! These are the competition films — all new and noteworthy.


Our downtown location is across from the Country Music Hall of Fame.  NaFF Cinema at Walk of Fame Park a free film every night, Happy Hour Short Films and Drink Specials at our Stella Festival Pub, live music with loads of Nashville singer/songwriters, vendor booths and more.  Most events are free for the public at NaFF Cinema!

Buy tickets for any film online or at our box office. Tickets are about the same as for any movie you would attend all year.  The difference: here you can meet the filmmakers and maybe watch the film next to a celebrity.

Attend a Film

Attend a Red Carpet Event

We’ll post the red carpet schedule here.  You are welcome to attend any red carpet event to take your own pic of our celebrities.  Most days our red carpets start around 5 p.m. at Regal Green Hills Cinemas.
