SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The lineup for the 23rd annual SCAD Savannah Film Festival has arrived.

The festival is going virtual this year but still offers a whole host of screenings and conversations with actors, filmmakers and industry leaders.

The Savannah College of Art and Design’s honored guests include “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown, Rachel Brosnahan, of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, best known for his roles in “Aquaman” and “Watchmen.” All honorees are scheduled to speak during the festival before accepting their awards.

The Docs to Watch Directors Roundtable is back for another year, along with the Wonder Women: Producers panel; short films and costume design will be showcased in numerous events, too.

Because the festival will be held virtually, after purchasing tickets, attendees will be provided a link to access the event via computer, smartphone or tablet.
