SCAD to host aTVFest

‘A big festival about the small screen’


The Savannah College of Art and Design is bringing a “big festival about the small screen” to Atlanta.

The inaugural three-day aTVFest will offer attendees expertise from a diverse group of professionals for various panels from Feb. 14 - 16. Among them will be Stephen Nathan, executive producer for the T.V. Show “BONES,” John Hill, Bravo senior producer, and Karen Kirkland, executive director of the Nickelodeon Writing Fellowship.

The festival is primarily aimed at people looking to break into the television industry, but the general public will have the chance to understand all that it takes to create a television show.

“Atlanta TVFest is an opportunity to bring the television creative industry together with our students and the public,” said Danny Filson, executive director of aTVFest. “This is a unique festival in terms of television, small screen, and digital media.”
