“One of the foundations of the SCAD Savannah Film Festival has always been celebrating the artisans who are at the heart of every successful film and television effort,” said Christina Routhier, SCAD Executive Director. “They play an integral role in creating the movie magic that our students and audiences enjoy on screen. We are honored to partner with Variety to recognize new and emerging talent who represent the breadth of crafts in the industry today.”

The 10 selected artisans will be spotlighted in a panel discussion at the festival, moderated by Variety senior craftsman editor Jazz Tangcay. The list reflects individuals in the fields of cinematography, costume design, editing, hair/makeup, production design, sound editing/design, and visual effects.

The SCAD Savannah Film Festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and will take place October 22-29. While the special guests for this year’s festival have not yet been announced, Kenneth Branagh, Adrien Brody, Aunjanue Ellis and Maggie Gyllenhaal have been honored guests at the festival.
