This November, the Melwood Screening Room (just outside of Polish Hill at 477 Melwood Ave. in Oakland) is once again hosting the annual Three Rivers Film Festival (3RFF) along with the Harris Theater (Downtown), the Regent Square Theater (Regent Square), and Waterworks Cinemas (in the Aspinwall/Fox Chapel area). The Festival, which is sponsored by Pittsburgh Filmmakers and Dollar Bank will run November 7 – 22 and, as in past years, will screen an amazing variety of films – independent American cinema, sneak peeks, new documentaries, restored classics, a competitive shorts program, critically-acclaimed international films, and the new concept micro-cinemas. There will also be a wide assortment of related activities like visiting filmmakers, informal discussions, live music events, and micro-cinemas, as well as Opening Night and Closing Night parties.
Pittsburgh Filmmakers is now looking for volunteers to help with the festival. If you’d like to be part of the Volunteer Committee or simply want to volunteer to help at the screenings in the theater of your choice, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
For updates on the festival, keep your eyes on future editions of this publication, check the festival website (3rff.com) from time to time, and “like” the festival on Facebook (3RFF).
