It’s important to have these fresh stories to be heard,” Vitale said. “Working in film has been a dream of mine since I was a kid so there’s no other way to say that this is a dream come true.”

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau—an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable—into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.
The Disaster Artist is set
Five films that screened at last year’s festival went on to receive Academy Awards, including last year’s best picture winner “Moonlight.”
It’s also one of the few university-run festivals, with Savannah College of Art and Design providing students the opportunity to engage in all aspects. Several of the Scad alumni have gone on to work on projects that have received not only Oscar attention, but also Grammys, Emmys, Tonys and more.

“Now, 20 years later, the Scad Savannah Film Festival is a mainstay for the awards season circuit

Biopics are a dime a dozen these days, with everyone even remotely famous throughout history getting their life immortalized onscreen. Rebel in the Rye is slightly different than your run-of-the-mill historical biopic, because it deals with a very reclusive and mysterious subject: author J.D. Salinger.
Nicholas Hoult dons some brown contacts and shows off his seemingly endless versatility as Jerry Salinger, a bold and ambitious young man whose life is forever changed by his time as a soldier and his brush with fame. Chances are you had to read Catcher in the Rye as part of your high school English curriculum, so you’ll be familiar with Salinger’s most famous work and only novel. However, there’s much more to the author’s story, and it’s beautifully brought to life by Kevin Spacey,
This year’s 13 honorees are Richard Gere (Lifetime Achievement Award), Zoey Deutch (Rising Star Award), Mariska Hargitay (Humanitarian Award), Ashley Judd (Virtuoso Award), Kyra Sedgwick (Spotlight Award), Andrea Riseborough (Outstanding Supporting Actress Award for “Battle of the Sexes”), and Willow Shields (Rising Star Award), joining previously announced honorees John Boyega, Salma Hayek Pinault, Holly Hunter, Robert Pattinson, Aaron Sorkin and Patrick Stewart.
The Georgia festival will begin with the opening night gala screening of Sorkin’s “Molly’s Game,” and the festival’s centerpiece gala screening will feature Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird.”
The Scad Savannah Film Festival highlights films it considers to be awards contenders. The 17 films with Gala Screenings in this year’s festival include “I, Tonya,” “The Shape of Water,” “Downsizing,” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
Written and Directed by Danny Strong.
Starring Nicholas Hoult, Zoey Deutch, Kevin Spacey, Sarah Paulson, Lucy Boynton, Victor Garber, Hope Davis, Amy Rutberg, and Brian d’Arcy James.
The life of celebrated but reclusive author, J.D. Salinger, who gained worldwide fame with the publication of his novel, The Catcher in the Rye.
Throughout the early going of Rebel in the Rye (written and directed by Danny Strong, two-time Emmy winner for the hit television show Empire and co-writer for a few of the Hunger Games films, also based on the biography J.D. Salinger: A Life) it seems that the movie is looking to avoid plunging into the abyss that often comes from taking a historical figure and stretching the coverage of that particular person so far across a feature-length picture, that in the end there’s an unshakable feeling that all that’s being

The world of legendary writer J. D. Salinger is brought vividly to life in this revealing look at the experiences that shaped one of the most renowned, controversial, and enigmatic authors of our time.
Set amidst the colorful backdrop of mid-20th century New York City, Rebel in the Rye follows a young Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) as he struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with famed socialite Oona O’Neill (Zoey Deutch), and fights on the frontlines of World War II. It’s these experiences that will inform the creation of his masterpiece, The Catcher in the Rye, bringing him overnight fame (and notoriety) and leading him to withdraw from the public eye for the rest of his life.
Costarring Kevin Spacey and Sarah Paulson, Rebel in the Rye offers a tantalizing window into the life and
“It was one of the happiest moments of my life, that’s for sure,” recalls Moretz, 20, on a recent afternoon, sitting with her two-month-old pug, Ruby. The actress had such a plum spot at the DNC because organizers were hoping she’d reach first-time millennial voters.
Moretz has something in common with her multitasking generation: She knows what it’s like to burn out as a teenager. After appearing in dozens of movies since she was a pint-size kid, Moretz realized at 18 that she needed a yearlong break. She left her home in Los Angeles for a solitary vacation in Tulum, Mexico, embarked on a few road trips, dated and spent time with her friends — a
