Local film set to premiere at Next Big Nashville

Next Big Nashville will kick off next Wednesday, September 10 with our first pair of official showcases at 12th and Porter and the adjacent Lot 7, but those shows are not the only festival events taking place that night. Over at The Belcourt Theatre, you'll have the opportunity to catch the Nashville premiere of the locally-made film Make-Out with Violence.

And this premiere is a long time in the making, considering the fact that the filmmakers actually started the project back in 2004.

Make-Out With Violence, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the Atlanta Film Festival earlier this year, is about twin brothers Patrick and Carol, who are attempting to fulfill their unrequited love amongst the living and the dead. The 105-minute film stars Eric Lehning, Cody DeVos, Leah High, Brett Miller, Tia Shearer and Shellie Marie Shartzer. It also contains original songs and pop score by Jordan Lehning.

The Belcourt will host two screenings of the film next Wednesday - one at 6:30 p.m. and one at 8:45 p.m. Following the second screening will be a performance by The Non-Commissioned Officers, the band that crafted the soundtrack and began performing live to raise money for filming and production costs.

This film is unrated but contains mild language and horror elements similar to a PG-13 rating.
