@ The Nashville Film Festival

The NashFilm Creators Conference at this year’s 50th Anniversary of the Nashville Film Festival is an annual event where creative minded people can connect with their peers, discover the latest industry trends and expand your network. During this annual event, which coincides with the Nashville Film Festival, we will not only take a look at what is happening in our community but also engage with industry veterans across film, television and music from all over the country.

This year we strive to combine professional development of a conference with the kinetic energy of a festival. Sessions include intimate conversations and diverse panels covering a range of topics within this ever-changing medium.  With Nashville’s unique musical footprint, we will also take a deep dive into how music and film work hand in hand telling compelling stories across multiple platforms.

Creators Conference panels will take place on Friday, October 4th and Saturday, October 5th. All panels are free to VIP badge holders and $15 per session for general admission

Conference highlights include…
