It's getting closer and closer to that single week each early fall when celebrities swarm downtown Savannah and almost outnumber locals and tourists.

The Savannah Film Festival kicks off in only about three weeks, and, it goes without saying, is a must-attend event (but just in case, here's 12 .gifs explaining why you should attend).

We published the special screenings and workshops for this year's festival earlier this week, but we haven't had time yet to compile them all together in a pretty, condensed interactive guide like we did last year here. But, to give you a taste of last year's festival epic celebrity-dom and amazing cinematography, we figured we'd include the 2012 timeline below (we'll get this year's up soon!):

Lastly, we're compiling this Pinterest board of content from the festival, so tag your Instagram, Facebook or Twitter photos using the official festival hashtag #SAVFF, we'll be sure to get your submission added to the board and maybe even in the following issue of DoSavannah.

Happy Hump Day,
