THE NOTHING to Premiere at the 2011 Nashville Film Festival

RELEASED PICTURES is thrilled to announce that THE NOTHING will have it’s WORLD PREMIERE as an official selection of the 2011 Nashville Film Festival. THE NOTHING was chosen from over 2,400 entries to be a part of one of the longest running film festivals in the country.

THE NOTHING will screen on the festival’s opening night Thursday, April 14, 2011 at 5:45PM at the Regal Green Hills 16, right here in Nashville.

We’re so glad to be debuting our film at this particular festival, as the film was, from top to bottom, a product of the hard work and passion of Tennessee filmmakers, and was shot on location in Franklin, Nashville, and Leiper’s Fork, TN.

Seating will be limited, but tickets will go on sale to the general public on April 5th. We’ll post more details as they come here and on

Thanks so much to our cast, crew, families, friends, and supporters for making this film a reality.

THE NOTHING tells the story of Ren Dubbin, a man struggling to reconcile his spiritual convictions with his crippling fear of the unknown. He awakes to find himself in an eerie, ramshackle barn with four strangers. The men have no idea where they are, and no memory of how they got there. The mystery turns to desperation when they open the doors to find the barn floating in an endless expanse of emptiness and total darkness. Nothing.

The oppressive nothingness outside and bizarre events inside bring to light the men’s deepest fears, doubts, failings, and beliefs. When their situation appears to grow hopeless, the men turn to reflections on life and death, faith, God and– ultimately– the afterlife.
