HBCU Arts: Savannah State University Film Fest Bolsters the Next Generation of Film Makers

With all of the talk around HBCUs this week, I wanted to highlight an event in my Lowcountry backyard of Savannah, GA that is developing the next generation of HBCU taste makers and creative talent. The Savannah State University Indie Film Festival hosted its 5th year of activities and curated an itinerary full of events celebrating HBCU Arts. With an opening gala at the Beach Institute one of my favorite galleries and historic buildings in the Lowcountry, this indie film festival is sure to set the stage for so many creative talents and productions in the South. Check out highlights from the festival below.
