The 15th Annual Savannah Film Festival will be held this Saturday through next Saturday, Oct. 27-Nov. 3, in (duh) Savannah, Georgia. The festival opens with a special screening of Silver Linings Playbook, starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, and closes with Rise of the Guardians, an animated effort featuring the voice talents of Hugh Jackman and Jude Law. In between, there will be approximately four dozen more screenings, as well as workshops, panel discussions and appearances by this year's honorees: Diane Lane, John Goodman, Michelle Monaghan, Matt Dillon, Geoffrey Fletcher, John Gatins and ... wait for it ... Stan Lee.

Creative Loafing film critic Matt Brunson will be on hand for half the festival, checking out screenings and blogging about the event. Among the films on his schedule are Flight, a drama starring Denzel Washington, On the Road, the Jack Kerouac adaptation featuring Kristen Stewart, and Quartet, with Dustin Hoffman (in his directorial debut) overseeing a heavyweight cast that includes Maggie Smith and Tom Courtenay.
