How to Fest
NaFF is a public, 10-day festival. Come for one or more days — or attend just one event at a time.
We’re located at Regal Green Hills Cinema 16 — lower level. This is where we’ll screen more than 200 films in 10 days! These are the competition films — all new and noteworthy.
Our downtown location is across from the Country Music Hall of Fame. The Nissan Multicultural Festival Village offers a free film every night, an outdoor music stage with loads of Nashville singer/songwriters and musical acts, vendor booths, a cash bar and a VIP Tent.
Buy tickets for any film online or at our box office (Open April 16th at Regal Green Hills Cinema.) Tickets are about the same as for any movie you would attend all year. The difference: here you can meet the filmmakers and maybe watch the film next to a celebrity.
Just buy a ticket online (See Tickets) or come to our box office at Regal Green Hills Cinemas. We also have free films at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum (4/17, 18, 19) and at our outdoor theater at the Nissan Multicultural Festival Village. Members get special rates. If you plan to attend more than one film or event — check out the member rates for the best deal.
We’ll post the red carpet schedule, here. You are welcome to attend any red carpet event to take your own pic of our celebrities. Most days, our red carpets start around 5 p.m. at Regal Green Hills Cinemas.
Opening and Closing Night Parties take place in our VIP Tents. Tickets are $35. Tickets sell out, so get them early. These events are catered with an open bar for ticket holders. They are a great place to rub shoulders with filmmakers, actors and celebrities.
Except for events for music supervisors, all events are open to the public. Just buy a ticket online or at our box office for any film or party. All red carpet events are open to the public as well as the media. Tickets will be available online in early April. The official NaFF Box Office will open April 16th at the Regal Green Hills Cinemas – one day ahead of the festival.
