Eight World Premieres Slated for Upcoming Nashville Fest

Eight world premieres and a dozen Southern premieres are slated for this year’s Nashville Film Festival, including the debut of doc “My Secret Record or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Biz,” by Gillian Grisman about the making of Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas‘ multi-platinum-selling solo record. Other film highlights include the world debut of thriller “Adrenaline” by Robert Lynn and “Matthew Kennedy: One Man’s Journey,” described as “a loving look by Nina Kennedy at the life, times and music of the retired Fisk Jubilee Singers director.” Also a world premiere is Cornett Young and Jacob Young‘s “The Urim and the Thummim,” about three Kentucky men who feel they have found a religious oracle from the Old Testament in a Nashville thrift store. Producer Lawrence Bender will be the subject of a “Conversation with…” program as well as writer/producer/actor/director Steve Oederkerk.
