Wichita Rutherford just wrote to tell me that the Van Heffer Video that he podcast recently has been chosen for competition in the 37th Nashville Film Festival presented by Regal Cinemas. Wichita tells me that he’s not even sure how the video got submitted for inclusion in this years event.
They told me they had 1700 entries and the competition was fierce, but I don’t know how Van Heffer got nominated. I didn’t do it!
The Van Heffer video was filmed by Pat Isbey and directed by veterian Nashville producer Scott Rouse.
The festival takes place April 20-26 at the Regal Green Hills Stadium 16 theater. In addition to the films being screened, they are also planning parties most nights hosted by various festival sponsors. Also scheduled are panel discussions hosted by various industry professionals and celebrities. The full schedule will be announced March 20 on nashvillefilmfestival.org.
