The Nashville Film Festival will be held April 14-23 throughout Nashville, Tenn., and Joey + Rory’s Rory Feek will be a part of it. Feek’s film, Josephine, will make its world premiere on opening night.

Josephine was directed by Rory Feek and follows a young farmer’s wife who enlists in the army posing as a man. Near the end of the Civil War, she finds herself in new territory as she “battles the enemy, the men of her unit and her own identity in a quest to find her missing husband.”

The film cast includes Alice Coulthard, Boris McGiver, Jessejames Locorriere and Linds Edwards. Feek converted the milk barn at his family farm into an editing room to work on the film.

“Getting a movie into theaters so that the whole world can see it is nearly impossible for an independent film (most of them go straight to video, or less), but I’m a big dreamer,” Rory Feek wrote in his This Life I Live blog last October. “Amazing things can happen if you just believe and trust in His plan… things that you never dream of … that you never hoped for or ever even knew was possible.”

“To say that I, and all of us who worked on this film are proud of it, is an understatement. Aaron and I had never written a film before … I’d never directed a film before … and most of us from Nashville that went to Virginia had never even been on a movie set before … let alone made a movie,” he says. “Sometimes, not knowing what you don’t know is a blessing.”

Additionally, A Song for You: The Austin City Limits Story, directed by Keith Maitland, will be featured at the film festival. The documentary highlights performances by Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, Wilco, Ray Charles and other iconic acts that helped make 40 years of music on the longest-running music show in television history.

Nearly 6,500 submissions were sent in for this year’s Nashville Film Festival.
