ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: The surprise resignation of Brian Gordon Monday as artistic director of the Nashville Film Festival has the city’s film community—and even some festival volunteers—scratching their heads.

The creative force behind the Nashville Film Festival for the last seven years, artistic director Brian Gordon has resigned.
———
As a board member on the executive committee I can say that from my chair, Brian Gordon gave a gift to this city that we can never repay him for. His talent and vision will be lost to NaFF and that is a horrible sacrifice. He will have job offers rolling in – I can only hope the city doesn’t loose him as well.
I believe that the executive communication process was flawed and I trust that the dedicated board of directors will make best efforts to make corrections on where things went terribly wrong.
The 40th anniversary of NaFF in 2009 will most certainly not be the same. However, I’m sure it will continue to be the jewel of Awesome April in Nashville.
