The Savannah College of Art and Design's second annual aTVfest, a three-day celebration of all things television, will feature Atlanta rap and TV star Cee Lo Green and his new TBS show, 'Nashville" star Connie Britton and cast and crew from the hot new Netflix show "Orange is the New Black." (I had to update this after I heard on Feb. 2 that Norman Reedus of "The Walking Dead" couldn't make it after all.)
The festival will be held at SCAD in Atlanta from Feb. 6 to 8.
There will be screenings of shows such as TNT's "Dallas," the CW's "The Vampire Diaries" and Sundance's upcoming drama "The Red Road." Each screening will be followed a Q&A with cast and crew (though who will actually be there has not been finalized in every case.)
Panels will feature representatives from networks such as ABC, Discovery, HGTV, Nickelodeon, TBS, TNT, UP! Network and the Weather Channel. Topics include virtual reality, co-production deals, web series, reality TV, acting, casting and the pitching and development process.
The festival - while targeting students interested in getting into TV - is open to the public. Day passes are $25 and available here. A full-fledged festival pass, which includes reserved seating for evening events as well, is $200 here.
