Nashville Film Festival (NaFF) and Nashville Pride have formed a partnership to produce "Pride on Film," a mini GLBT film festival during the 2011 Nashville Film Festival. Regal Green Hills Cinemas will host "Pride on Film" from April 14-16.

The festival will feature six to eight GLBT-focused films, and an opening and closing reception. Details on price and times will be released at a later date at NashvilleFilmFestival.org.

“The Nashville Film Festival has featured GLBT films as a part of the annual film festival for a number of years,” said Sallie Mayne, executive director of NaFF. “The partnership with Nashville Pride, whose mission is to maintain a sense of community and awareness of, about, and for gay, lesbian, transgender, and culture throughout middle Tennessee was a natural connection."

“Nashville Pride has been looking for opportunities throughout middle Tennessee to celebrate GLBT culture,” said Jack Davis, President of Nashville Pride. ”Nashville Film Festival’s commitment to programming films by and about members of the GLBT community has always set a positive example and high bar in the community."
