The Savannah College of Art and Design and Trustees Theater announce the 2010–11 season of the SCAD Cinema Circle. The season builds on the highly successful programming format of last year’s series with pre- and post-show discussions and membership packages, including an exclusive special screening during the Savannah Film Festival.
The mission of the SCAD Cinema Circle is to provide film lovers and students with an enriched viewing experience of first-class, award-winning and cutting-edge films from around the world. All screenings are presented at Trustees Theater, 216 E. Broughton St.
The SCAD Cinema Circle features pre-show discussions that highlight the cinematic, cultural and historic importance of each film. At the conclusion of the screening, a post-show discussion, led by SCAD’s cinema studies and film and television professors, provides an in-depth review of the film and the context in which it was produced.
Robert Eisinger, dean of SCAD’s School of Liberal Arts, said of the second season: “SCAD enthusiastically brings to the Savannah community another series of important, entertaining and outstanding films. We are especially excited about showing a range of superb films—from Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry, to the 1927 Fritz Lang masterpiece, Metropolis. By exposing students, faculty, staff and the greater Savannah community to excellence, we underscore that great texts include great films. Our film series is the envy of any art and design university.”
Len Cripe, executive director of Trustees Theater, added, “SCAD's Cinema Circle gives SCAD students and Savannah filmgoers the opportunity to watch and discuss some of the most important films of the last century, while the 1946 Trustees Theater is the perfect setting to enjoy these great movies and great discussions."
