“Novitiate (2016)”  Scenes Filmed In Springfield This Week

SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Film crews with the movie “Novitiate” set to be released in (2016) stopped in Springfield to film a few scenes this week.

IMG_2983The shoot location was the old Robertson County School’s Board of Education building MAP likely due to its older appearance.

The film crew made changes to both the inside and outside of the old building to make it look like an old school house from the 50’s.

According to IMDb.com, the movie is a drama and is set back in the early 1960’s during the era of Vatican II and tells the tale of a young woman in training to become a nun. She struggles with issues of faith, the changing church and sexuality. Novitiate is Directed by Margaret Betts and stars Liana Liberato, Dianna Agron and Julianne Nicholson.

The film crew even redesigned/restored and decorated one of the rooms to look like an old school room. The room they filmed in was, in fact, an old school room, so they chose the perfect filming location. Makes you wonder how these production companies find these filming locations.

They also filmed some scenes outside in front of the building. Seeing a name attached to the building and young girls in Catholic school outfits left the neighbors wondering what was going on. “Was the old building being turned into a Catholic school for girls?” one neighbor asked…

Robertson County offers film crews a bounty of old beautiful historic buildings to help them tell their stories and they come here often. To see other film shoots in Robertson County click here.
