If Georgia is the new Hollywood, we might as well embrace it. After all, our film and television industry generated $9.5 billion in fiscal 2017.
One place to celebrate the intersection of television and digital media is the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD). The school boasts 30 undergraduate and graduate programs in the entertainment arts, with a slew of alumni going on to successful careers in television and new media.
In February, SCAD hosts aTVfest, a three-day event that invites attendees to discover the latest in television and new media. The international event includes featured screenings with casts and producers, panel discussions with industry experts, premieres, a virtual reality showcase and networking receptions. Attendees can expect a focus on everything from broadcast and cable to social media and advertising. Shuttles will be provided from SCAD Atlanta to the event venues, the SCAD Digital Media Center and SCAD show.
Last year’s a TVfest honored actors Jenna Elfman, Christina Ricci and Jennifer Morrison, as well as shows shot in Atlanta, including “24: Legacy”, “Mac- Gyver”, “Star” and “Greenleaf”.
