Cutwater Law Sponsors Nashville Japanese Film Festival
Wednesday, September 2, 2015Local media law firm aims to help foster cultural exchange through film.
Nashville, Tennessee, August 28, 2015 – Cutwater Law today announced that it is sponsoring the Second Annual Nashville Japanese Film Festival. By sponsoring Nashville’s newest cultural film festival, Cutwater law is reinforcing its commitment to promoting the local film industry while fostering cross-boarder exchanges of arts and culture through film. The Nashville Japanese Film Festival’s mission is to bring the best in Japanese cinema to Nashville.
“Japan is the third largest audiovisual market in terms of box office revenue, but less than 10% of all U.S. audiovisual exports find their way there. To expand our audiovisual export opportunities, Nashville’s television and film industry must engage with this key market. My hope is that the television and film industries in Japan and Tennessee will look at the Nashville Japanese Film Festival—and the Cutwater brand—and see a global trade opportunity.”
“In Nashville, we have an enormous opportunity to export audiovisual products and services into the Japanese market because Tennessee already has substantial economic ties with Japan. Japanese investors have historically played an important role in Tennessee’s economy. For the past 10 years, Tennessee has ranked second among all U.S. states for total Japanese foreign direct investment,” Zeglarski said.
