"I’m exhausted, but exhilarated!” said artistic director Owens on culling the selections from 2,403 entries. "We again broke a record on submissions, and I think we’ve gathered a truly diverse collection of international films that will give fans a healthy survey of what’s going on in filmmaking around the world. Continuing a trend, the lines between narrative and documentary continues to be blurred, making the experience of film more engaging than ever."

Opening and Closing Nights and Special Presentations will be released shortly. Click here to view the complete list of films in the Documentary, Narrative, Music Films/Music City and New Directors, World Cinema and Graveyard Shift categories.

The Nashville Film Festival runs April 14-21.
