Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) recently held their annual Savannah Film Festival, which was attended by both award-winning professionals and emerging student filmmakers and sound mixers.

The festival is host to a wide variety of competition film screenings, special screenings, workshops, panels, and lectures. We are in our 5th year sponsoring this festival and play a large role in everything from event sponsorship to panel discussions and master class workshops to connecting professionals to students.
