A letter from the president

Thank you for joining us for SCAD AnimationFest, presented by SCADFILM! SCAD is proud to launch creative careers worldwide. In fact, more than 50 SCAD alumni contributed to films recognized at the 2017 Academy Awards. Three months later, at the College Television Awards, two Bees took home a Student Emmy for "The Buzz," the university’s student-created, broadcast-ready sitcom. You can also catch SCAD talent at Cannes, Sundance, and SXSW — or any of the buzziest venues on the planet.

A SCAD degree in entertainment arts means access to world-class faculty, facilities, and festivals. University resources include an on-site casting office, the SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film, and SCADFILM professional enrichment opportunities. Here in Atlanta, the mecca of film and television production, SCAD is proud to welcome the community to the newest of our small- and big-screen festivals. I hope you’ll tune back in for the upcoming SCADFILM festivals featuring gaming and AR/VR.

Let the festivities begin,

Paula Wallace
SCAD president and founder
