Three Rivers Film Festival moving from this November to spring 2018
The Three Rivers Film Festival, which has been held in fall since 1993 and began in 1982, won't be happening this November, but will return in spring 2018.
Organizers Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts also are seeking a new title sponsor after Dollar Bank dropped out after three decades of supporting the festival.
“This is a challenging, but advantageous opportunity to forge new relationships,” says CEO Germaine Williams in a news release. “Pittsburgh is important to the film industry, filmmakers, and filmgoers everywhere and it deserves a film festival that reflects that.”
The festival will use, at minimum, the Melwood Screening Room in Oakland, the Harris Theater in downtown Pittsburgh and the Regent Square Theater, which is set to reopen Oct. 27 after being closed since May for various repairs and improvements.
The full festival schedule, which will feature local and independently produced films, as well as films making waves in the festival circuit, will be announced in early 2018.
