Cinephiles rejoice: SCAD Savannah Film Festival 2023, the largest university-run film festival in the world, is just weeks away! The annual fall event is scheduled for October 21st through the 28th, 2023.
The 26th annual return of The Savannah College of Art and Design’s (SCAD) Film Festival promises to once again turn Savannah into a film lover’s paradise. The week-long event celebrates the cinematic creativity of both award-winning professionals and student filmmakers, through film screenings, panels, workshops, informal talks, and more. Films shown at the festival include Oscar-buzzworthy feature films, short subject films, documentaries, and animated films from around the world.
SCAD Savannah Film Festival is also known for its honored guests. Celebrated movie making professionals who come to promote their latest work or to be honored at the festival. These include famous directors, writers, producers, and even A-list actors. Last year’s guests, for example, included such luminaries as Kerry Condon, Nicholas Hoult, Ron Howard, Eddie Redmayne, Sadie Sink, and Miles Teller, to name but a few.
It’s not all just A-listers, though. Folks like you and I can also attend, of course. In fact, the festival draws more than 63,000 people to Savannah every year. It’s also considered an important stop on the film awards circuit.
