Nashville Film Festival 2008

The Nashville Film Festival is coming up pretty soon. It will take place April 17-24. I’m planning on attending it for a few days during the weekend. I wish I could be there for more, but my class schedule doesn’t agree with this train of thought. Online tickets go on sale this Tuesday, so I’ve been perusing the offerings the many offerings this year.

The opening film, The Deal, sounds like it could be really good. It stars William H. Macy, Meg Ryan, and Elliott Gould. I’m also interested in the “State of the Critic” panel on Friday, which addresses the influence of (ahem) bloggers and what it means to be a film critic today.

Also on Friday is an intriguing film called American Teen, which apparently is a documentary that follows four senior students at a high school in Indiana.

We’ve also got Werner Herzog’s latest documentary entitled Encounters at the End of the World, which is centered on Antarctica. It’s Herzog; count me in.

Depending on when I leave the festival, Sunday has an interesting bag to choose from

Alexandria, directed by Aleksandr Sokurov (Russian Ark)
In the City of Sylvia, which sounds more like a short film than a feature-length one
In the Company of Actors; a behind the scenes look at theater and acting. Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving star; can you get better people to listen to?

Is anyone else going to be there?
