More than 280 independent films will screen at the Regal Green Hills Cinema April 16-25 as part of the 46th annual Nashville Film Festival. Since you likely won't be able to cram in nearly 300 films in 10 days, we've narrowed down the list a bit. Here are 13 buzzed-about movies that are worth your time:
"In My Father's House"
6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 21 and 1:45 p.m. Wednesday, April 22
Director: Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg
Cast: Che "Rhymefest" Smith
Why you should see this film: Stern and Sundberg are best known for making "Joan Rivers — a Piece of Work." In this film, they follow rapper Che "Rhymefest" Smith, who won a Grammy earlier this year for co-writing "Glory" and previously won a Grammy for co-writing "Jesus Walks" with Kanye West, as he returns to Chicago to reconnect with the homeless father who abandoned him as a child. Like a lot of his music, this is about the responsibility of fatherhood.
