The entry fee is $40 for professional films and can also be charged by phone at 912-525-5051. The $20 entry fee for student films is waived for SCAD alumni and entrants with a valid SCAD ID. No works in progress will be accepted, and student entrants must be enrolled in an academic institution or have completed their film while enrolled.
In addition to independent films, The Savannah Film Festival offers workshops, panel discussions and presentations of well-known visiting artists and filmmakers. In 2006, all but one of the evening gala screenings went on to be nominated for an Academy Award, and all but two of those films won the Oscar in their category.
