Having previously announced the 48th annual Nashville Film Festival (NaFF) will be held in a new location–the April 20-29 nine-day celebration of film will now take place at Regal Hollywood 27–and with the festival just over a month away, NaFF seems to be celebrating with a special discount code* for memberships by offering a 10% discount. *(Sure…Go ahead and skip to the end if you just wanna take advantage of the discount without reading about all the fabulous fringe benefits)
Memberships to NaFF vary in price and perks, from the free Friend level (which gets you $1 off each festival movie ticket you purchase just by signing up), to the all-inclusive $1500 Platinum Membership.
Following the free Friend Member level is a Basic Member level which costs $45. This level not only guarantees you a discounted movie price of $8 for each ticket, but also gets you a Member Decal, Invitations to Members-Only Lineup Launch Party, a NaFF 2017 Program Guide before they are publicly available, as well as the opportunity to purchase tickets before they go on sale to the general public.
For $75, you will can become a Bronze Member which includes all all the aforementioned Basic Level perks, plus two free movie tickets, Free Film Invitations all year ’round and 20% off all NashFilm Merch.
For $250, you secure your spot as a Silver Member which offers you NaFF film tickets at a great discounted price of $5 per movie ticket, all the benefits of a Bronze Member level, as well as VIP Tent Laminate, the opportunity to reserve tickets to the Opening Night and CLosing Night Parties and a Member Gift Pack (for Cash Members).
At $399 for the Gold Member level, that 10% really helps when you consider all the perks. In addition to all the above-listed advantages, Gold Members receive up to 40 free film festival movie tickets with then option to purchase companion tickets for $8 each as well as the benefit of a Personal Movie Mogul Concierge (a member of NaFF will take care of ordering all your film festival tickets for you! All you have to do is send a single email with your requested NaFF movie picks!)
Finally, there’s the grandaddy of all NaFF Memberships, the Platinum Member. Join at this level and you not only receive EVERY previously revealed benefit, but you also receive many of them for a guest. That’s right, TWO VIP Laminates, TWO Member Decals, up to 40 free festival movie passes per laminate, with the option to purchase an additional guest ticket for $8 for each laminate holder’s guest, as well as the option to reserve Opening Night and Closing Night Party tickets for each laminate holder, and perhaps one of the most coveted of all NaFF bonuses….Reserved Parking at Regal Hollywood 27 during the entire run of the nine-day festival.
Just to make it perfectly clear…Let me do the math for you. If you take advantage of the 10% discount, you can save from $4.50 on a Basic Member Level (dropping to $40.50 from its normal $45 price) to a whopping $150 on a Platinum Member Level (dropping the price from $1500 to $1350). When you consider the variety of levels, that 10% discount certainly seems advantageous.
For those of you who’ve stuck with me during the details…I feel like the head of an awards ceremony whose job it is to explain the eligibility and voting procedures….the all important discount code to take advantage of 10% off your Nashville Festival Membership is…2017FILMS, so Click Here, sign up and Fest On!
