Music business adjunct Rob Cheplicki is serving as producer of this year’s ICiT films. ICiT is a local non-profit organization that works with under-served youth at the YMCA, and takes them through a month long screenwriting camp, where they learn how to write and finish a script. A script is chosen from each group and given to a professional producer and director and turned into a world-class film. Production for both films will be completed by the end of January, and ICiT has partnered with the Nashville Film Festival so that both films will be premiered at the festival in the spring and also have set up TV distribution with NECAT that will broadcast both films on Comcast and Uverse in the spring. This is a life changing opportunity for these youth, who are literally able to have their voice heard for the first time, and also an incredible opportunity for the Nashville film community to bring original narrative film to life with such powerful backing, and remarkable distribution already in place.
