This weekend, Willow is attending the SCAD Savannah Film Festival in Georgia, where her new film Into the Rainbow will premiere. On Sunday following the showing, she will also be doing a Q&A session. On top of that, Willow will also receive the Rising Star award. I will be updating this post with any new photos, videos, etc from the event, so be sure to check back! Congratulations, Willow!
