While Tennessee is largely known in the art and entertainment world for its notable music scenes (particularly in hotspots like Nashville and Memphis), Tennessee also affords a surprisingly popular backdrop for local, regional and major film productions, thanks in part to a diversity of natural and urban scenery and generous incentives by the state. Tennessee has provided shooting sites for such films as Cast Away, Walk the Line, Country Strong, October Sky, and The Green Mile, among many others, as well as for popular television series like 'Nashville.'

The people you see featured on this page are all filmmakers and film professionals who have demonstrated a commitment to the highest quality standards as students/graduates of the Film Connection Film Institute in Tennessee. These talented people have all been mentored and trained on the set and in real production companies by some of the top filmmakers in our industry, and each is highly qualified for any professional film services you might happen to have. Please consult their professional websites for more information on the services they offer.
