The purpose of this documentary is to give a little insight into the inner workings and origins of the Nashville Film Festival, in which I had the priviledge of being involved over the past year. When I first began working with the festival, I was simply on the screening committee; I met at Nashville Public Television's offices for a couple hours every Thursday night to watch shorts, or short films, with a larger group of screeners. This was a vital part of the narrowing-down process described in the documentary, and though some of the less respectable shorts got tiring, it was always fun to watch and comment with the other screeners. When Winterim came along, I became a full-time intern for three weeks. These weeks were spent doing a lot more screening, sitting in on meetings, filing movies, copying movies, getting lunch, getting the mail -- all the busy work. Though a good chunk of my time there was spent either sitting at the back table staring at the wall, or entering ballots tirelessly into the computer, I was always glad to be there. It was a great look at the inside of a part of the industry I want to go into, and a hopeful flashforward to what my life could be like soon. All in all, it was a great experience. I encourage everyone who lives in Nashville to attend a showing at the festival -- it's one of the largest in the country, and growing fast -- and I hope this film does the same.+ More details
