Tonight, the 49th annual Nashville Film Festival kicks off at the Regal Hollywood Stadium 27. Over 300 feature films, documentaries, and shorts will screen throughout the festival, which ends on the 19th. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to see every single film, but there are a few exciting projects we can’t wait to see.

Tonight, the festival is hosting its opening night party at 3rd & Lindsley at 8:30 p.m. Filmmakers, screenwriters, and cinephiles will be at the party, which is first come, first serve. Details for the event are on the event page. 

The opening film of the festival is the new documentary, Steven Tyler: Out on a Limb, which chronicles the rocker’s life through interviews and a performance at The Ryman. The film’s worl premiere screens tonight at 6:30, and tickets are available online.

Tomorrow, Nashville-based writer-director Motke Dapp is showing his new feature film, Other Versions of You. The story explores heartbreak, parallel universes, and has an Eddie George cameo. Revisit NATIVE’s feature on Dapp here.
