Mid Tenn Film Fest mission statement:
- To encourage the cultural, artistic, creative and aesthetic expression of hope within our community and the Middle Tennessee region.
- To promote awareness of the arts community in Smyrna, Rutherford County and the Greater Middle Tennessee region.
- To create a family friendly atmosphere where people can experience independent film that encourages and uplifts the spirit by focusing on hope.
- To introduce the community of Smyrna to filmmaking and filmmakers, and to encourage regional community members to get involved in the creation of the visual arts.
The Mid Tenn Film Fest seeks to harmonize the disciplines of film, music, art, and theatre by connecting the human experience to public exhibits which build up, rather than tear down.
Programming: Films designated as Official Selections will be chosen by a jury of regionally-based film and entertainment professionals.
