HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - February 12, 2009) - The Nashville International Film Festival, one of the country's most respected and longest running festivals, has announced that it will sponsor a red carpet, world premiere of Big Screen Entertainment Group's (PINKSHEETS: BSEG) new documentary, "William Shatner's Gonzo Ballet," at this year's festival.

Mr. Shatner, in an interview in The Tennessean, states that audiences "...will be, if not astounded, then intrigued by the making of a ballet, and what the people concerned felt about it, and the employment of the creative ideas to make everything work."

"William Shatner's Gonzo Ballet" is the first major film premiere to be announced by the festival, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Shatner and Folds will be in attendance at the film's star-studded premiere.
