Savannah has long been a favorite setting for movies from "Forrest Gump"  to "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" the original "Cape Fear"..... the list goes on and on. But did you know that thanks to the Savannah College of Art and Design we have our very own film festival?

The Savannah International Film Festival is  highly respected in the film community.  The 2007 honored guests included Michael Douglas, Vanessa Redgrave and Milos Forman and the 2008 featured guest will be Malcolm McDowell.

We're used to celebrity here.... some of the Savannah area residents both full and part time include Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, Kevin Spacey, Cindy Lauper and Sandra Bullock.  It's not uncommon to walk into Starbucks and see Sandra Bullock or run into Ben and Jennifer in Home Depot.
 
Having been in the film industry for many years in my former career I don't exactly get star struck but it is a little surreal having so many celebrities running around town.  I guess it's the beautiful scenery, beaches and laid back "live and let live" attitude of Savannah that attracts them.

This years film festival will take place from October 25th through November 1st.  Hope you can make it!

Sounds like a lot of fun, wish I could be there.  I do have to plan a trip to Savannah at some point.
