Kurdish films featured at April Nashville event

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Nashville Film Festival will emphasize Kurdish films at its April event.

The group announced Kurdish works will be shown April 19-21 as part of the weeklong event -- the 44th annual festival. The films will be shown at the Regal Green Hills Cinema.

Seven feature-length Kurdish films will be shown, along with eight short films.

The events are open to the public, and festival officials expect a strong audience among the large Kurdish population in Nashville.

Nashville-Kurdish organizer Govand Akreyi-Wani said for Kurds to see films by their people in their language is a big door opening for them.
