The World We Make, a feature film that premiered on April 7 at the Franklin Theatre, is opening in select theaters starting April 19.
The story of tragedy and romance was made in and around Franklin, with writers, producers, director, and crew members all hailing from the growing Nashville/Franklin movie industry.
There will be a Universal Pictures DVD and Blu-Ray release in June, and Netflix release in September.
The film features scenes shot in rural Williamson County along the Harpeth River, shots of downtown Franklin, and several scenes shot in Franklin Housing Authority homes.

The film stars Caleb Castille (Woodlawn) and Rose Reid, and features Gregory Alan Williams (Remember The Titans) and Kevin Sizemore (Resurrection). The film includes a cameo from Mike Nawrocki (VeggieTales), and a cast of supporting actors from Nashville, Los Angeles, and Atlanta.

The movie tells the story of 18-year old Lee (Rose Reid), a spirited equestrian, and Jordan (Caleb Castille), an academic and football standout, who are at the threshold of building a life together. But their character is tested when racial bias surfaces in their otherwise-progressive small town.

Reid, a native of Franklin, is responsible for the story told by the film. Writers Brian Baugh, Chris Dowling, and George Escobar developed the screenplay, and producers Ken Carpenter, George Escobar and Brian Baugh brought the film to the screen.
