The Three Rivers Film Festival continues this week at the Regent Square Theater, the Harris Theater (Downtown) and the Melwood Screening Room at Pittsburgh Filmmakers (Oakland). The festival, in its 31st year, brings foreign, independents, documentaries and classic films to Pittsburgh, and goes on through Nov. 17.
As always, the films are all over the map, ranging from turn-of-the-century Poland in “The Promised Land” to contemporary America in “The House I Live In,” a documentary about the war on drugs and its casualties, from acclaimed director Eugene Jarecki.
An obvious highlight this year is silent horror masterpiece “Vampyr” (1932), shown Tuesday at Regent Square with a live musical score performed by Steven Severin, of Souxsie and the Banshees.
