Welcome to the Tennessee International Indie Film Festival, or as it is affectionately referred to by many, 'Tennessee Indie'. Here we showcase the best in both Tennessee and global independent cinema! As a premier destination for both emerging and established filmmakers, we strive to celebrate and foster creativity, diversity, and innovation in the independent film community.

We host local arts and film related events throughout the year, with our flagship event being the annual Tennessee International Indie Film Festival! Come join us for an amazing time!

A Message from our Director

On behalf of Williamson County Cultural Arts Commission (WCCAC), the historic Franklin Theatre and the heritage foundations of both Franklin and Williamson County, our sponsors, staff, and volunteers, I want to welcome you to the 7th edition of TIIFF - August 1-6 2023.

In celebration of 100 years of film in Tennessee, we gather collaborators and industry influencers of today for our filmmakers, audiences, and new media makers. TIIFF would not be possible without our creative community of film lovers and enthusiasts. 

Franklin is a place where country music royalty and Hollywood stars collide with a friendly, local crowd. We'd be honored if you'd join us. Come for a film and stay for a panel or meetup with like-minded filmgoers. There are talkbacks after each film block to provide perspective and insights that may help on your filmmaking journey. Thank you for coming to the Tennessee International Indie Film Festival!

Nancy Puetz, Festival Director
