Nashville calls JUMP! an "absolute crowd pleaser"

SCENE, the main Nashville weekly, offers a sneak peak of what's in store at the upcoming Nashville Film Festival. "As usual in recent years, documentaries may prove the festival’s strongest segment," they write. Programmer Brian Gordon is quoted describing JUMP! and Gustavo Vazquez’s Mexican-wrestling doc QUE VIVA LA LUCHA as “absolute crowd-pleasers.”

They've got a great line up! I'm particularly excited to seeing "At the Death House Door," a doc about capital-punishment by Peter Gilbert and Steve James (the duo that made "Hoop Dreams"), the Sundance award-winning doc "American Teen" by Nanette Burstein and "Join Us," by "DiG!" director Ondi Timoner, who was so nice to us at our world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Fest (where she was also debuting her new doc). You can see the full Nashville Weekly SCENE article here.
