Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN –  A short documentary highlighting Clarksville in the 1930s took home one of the top honors at the 49th Annual Nashville Film Festival earlier this month. “Clarksville 1937,” directed by Austin Peay State University communication professors Karen Bullis and Kathy Lee Heuston, won the Tennessee First Grand Jury Prize for Documentary Short during the May event.

APSU professors Heuston and Karen Bullis turned the Charles Crow's footage into an 8-minute documentary, “Clarksville 1937,”

APSU professors Heuston and Karen Bullis turned the Charles Crow’s footage into an 8-minute documentary, “Clarksville 1937,”

“What an honor that footage shot by Clarksville’s former mayor Charles W. Crow in 1937 is being awarded over 80 years later by the Nashville Film Festival,” Bullis, APSU assistant professor of communication, said.

For the 8-minute documentary, Heuston and Bullis turned Crow’s 16-millimeter footage into an intimate exploration of the city by a prominent local family.   

At 12:15pm on Tuesday, June 7th, the community will get to see a free screening of the award-winning film, followed by a discussion with the two professors, at the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center’s Art and Lunch Event. This event, which will be held in conjunction with the museum’s “Our Town: Stories from within Clarksville’s Doorways” exhibit, will be in the museum’s concert hall.

“We are excited to share this film with the community at this event,” Heuston, interim chair of the APSU Department of Communication, said. “I know they would enjoy seeing familiar buildings and faces from the past.”

More than 5,000 short films were submitted to this year’s Nashville Film Festival, with only 215 being selected. “Clarksville 1937” was considered the top documentary film in Tennessee for this category.
