Best PR Guy

Joe Pagetta, NPT/Nashville Film Festival

Like Elaine Wood, the Nashville PR veteran and event planner whose calls are always returned, Pagetta is successful first and foremost because people enjoy talking to him. He understands where different media outlets are likely to see the interest in his causes, so editors and reporters never feel he's wasting their time; he's also mastered the art of the gentle push, winning people over to his causes with informed enthusiasm. Both NPT and the Nashville Film Festival have benefited enormously from his efforts; we might give the edge to the festival, just because his vast improvement of the event's publicity has made a big difference in the way it gets covered now.
