SCAD Savannah Film Fest: George C. Wolfe to Appear on Live ‘Awards Chatter’ Episode

George C. Wolfe director of films including 2020’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and this year’s Rustin, will sit down with yours truly at the SCAD Savannah Film Festival to record a live episode of The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast. Wolfe is also a theater legend. He is a playwright and director who has won Tonys for the original productions of Angels in America and Bring in ‘da Noise/Bring in ‘da Funk.

This conversation — which replaces a previously announced live podcast with Phil Lord and Christopher Miller that has been canceled — will take place at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Oct. 25, at Savannah’s Trustees Theater, immediately following a screening of Rustin. In Wolfe’s latest film, Colman Domingo portrays Bayard Rustin, the civil rights activist and organizer of the 1963 March on Washington.
