SCAD closes its curtains on another successful film festival

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

SCAD's Savannah Film Festival wrapped up Saturday night.

All week long, movie lovers have come from near and far to see the latest films, attend workshops with some very well known people and a whole lot more.

Organizers of the festival say the official numbers aren't in  but they've seen an incredible rise in attendance this year. Celebrities like John Goodman, Dianne Lane and Stan Lee could have something to do with it.

Danny Filson, Executive Director of the film festival said "These people don't need another award, they come back, they come to the Savannah Film Festival for the opportunity to give back to our students at SCAD, to help the next generation of story tellers tell their story, make connections in the film and entertainment industry and launch their careers, which is really what SCAD's all about."

Passes for next year's savannah film festival will go on sale on December third.
