NASHVILLE, Tenn. – As the Nashville Film Festival heads into its first weekend, organizers said it is bigger and better than ever before.

This year, for the first time, the event will last for 10 days and feature movies in two locations.  Movie buffs can check out films at the Regal Green Hills Movie Theater as well as at Walk of Fame Park near the Country Music Hall of Fame in downtown Nashville.

A total of 250 films on a variety of topics will be shown. Organizers weeded through over 3100 submissions from around the world.

"We are growing each year," said Brian Owens, Creative Director of the Nashville Film Festival.  "As the audience grows, the reputation grows and it gets filmmakers excited about submitting their films to us."

Event coordinators said ticket sales have also increased and the festival saw its most successful opening day ever.

"It's exciting," said Ted Crockett, Executive Director of the Nashville Film Festival.   "We want people to think of Nashville when they think of film and music as it relates to film and TV."

Crockett and Owens said they expect the event will only continue to get bigger in the future.

"It's been amazing," said Owens.  "We are excited about what's to come."
