The documentary THE LAST SONGWRITER will make its world premiere as an official selection of the Nashville Film Festival on April 27, 2017.

THE LAST SONGWRITER asks “In the future, who will write the soundtrack of our lives—songs we dance to at our wedding, sing at sporting events, and play at a loved one’s funeral?”  It will share the story of remarkable women and men who crafted the most influential songs of the past 25 years as well as the inspiring journey of a young writer trying to beat the odds and make a living in today’s music industry.

The film features SESAC affiliates Jamie Floyd, Jim Lauderdale as well as Garth Brooks, Emmylou Harris, Jason Isbell and more. 

THE LAST SONGWRITER is directed by award-winning filmmaker Mark Barger Elliott with a team that includes legendary cinematographer Tom Hurwitz (Queen of Versailles) and a score by Grammy award-winning writer Marcus Hummon (Bless the Broken Road).  This film is for everyone who has been moved by a song to step out onto a dance floor, to give it one more try or to fall in love with the stranger across the room. THE LAST SONGWRITER is for those who love music and care about its future.
