NashFilm’s 2022 Creators Conference (Sept 30 & Oct. 1) connects filmmakers, industry trailblazers, tastemakers and thought leaders with a mix of in-person and online panels exploring the current industry trends in the film and music industries while also focusing on important topical cultural issues.

NashFilm expands the inclusive nature of the festival by bringing film and music industry leaders together for a fully immersive experience of insights, content, resources and new relationships.

Recent NashFilm Creators Conference panels included a wide range of industry topics including: Ethics in Filmmaking; Diversity & Inclusion in Filmmaking; The Working Indie Screenwriter: The Business of Screenwriting; Scoring Your Film; The Art of Storytelling; Distributing Your Film; Festival Strategies for Filmmakers. The new lineup of 2022 Creators Conference panels will be announced later this summer. Stay tuned to nashfilm.org and social channels for regular updates.


The Nashville Film Festival is excited to announce the 2022 Pitch Competition. Do you have a great idea for the next hit episodic show or blockbuster movie? We’d love to hear them!

Submit your logline of 30 words or less for the opportunity to pitch in either the feature or episodic category. Every entry will get feedback on their logline. The top 25 loglines in each category will be selected to pitch their idea virtually to select industry professionals who will select ten finalists from each category to pitch live at the 2022 Nashville Film Festival Pitch Event during the 53rd Nashville Film Festival.

Writers pitching at all levels will receive feedback on their pitch. At the live event, the pitches will be narrowed to the three top pitches for each category and each writer will have the opportunity to make recommended adjustments to their pitch for the final round where the top pitch in each category will be selected.
