iPOP at the 2004 Nashville Film Festival

by Wendy Mitchell/indieWIRE

Music City became Film City last week as the 35th Nashville Film Festival screened more than 200 films. Visiting directors were welcomed to screenings as well as a slew of social activities, such as a BMI gala opening-night party, record label luncheons, a William Morris party at BB King's Blues Club, and an awards ceremony at Nashville Public Television. Among the folks iPOP caught on camera were Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi ("One Last Dance"), Alison Bagnall ("Piggie"), Zana Briski and Ross Kauffman ("Born Into Brothels"), and many others.
