The annual Savannah Film Festival is one of the most famous Savannah GA events for good reason. Held by the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), this year’s festival takes place from October 25th to November 1st and is the perfect event for art and film buffs and Savannah tourists alike. Each year the film festival draws more than 40,000 people across eight days, once again reiterating how popular and well-respected of an event it is.
The festival is designed to bring film industry talent and expertise to students in the SCAD program, as well as the greater Savannah community. As it takes place in a relaxed atmosphere and is committed to promoting education, collaboration and creativity, the film festival is a must for anyone thinking of travelling to Savannah during this time of year.
These Historic Theaters Make the Film-going Experience Incredible
One of the most attractive aspects of this special Savannah GA event is that it takes place in the beautifully restored Trustees Theater, which was built in 1946 in the heart of Savannah’s historic district. This theater has been part of the SCAD campus since 1998 and is therefore the premier venue for the festival.
The festival also takes place around the corner in the Lucas Theater for the Arts, which was built in 1926. The two theaters combined offers a seating capacity of nearly 2,400.
Lights, Camera, Action and More!
Entering its 17th year, the film festival supports independent films, international pieces, short films, narrative and documentary features and more. The festival’s promoters have done a wonderful job of offering a diverse and one-of-a-kind experience to all attendees and participants.
In addition to presenting a wide range of films, festival organizers also encourage attendees to check out the beautiful sights of Savannah, participate in workshops or informal coffee talks and more. This is a wonderful opportunity for those who are interested in visiting Savannah to get a true taste of what the city has to offer and why SCAD is such a well-respected college.
