The Three Rivers Film Festival is the oldest and largest film festival in the region. Now in its 38th year, this prestigious fest includes American and foreign dramas, comedies, and documentaries, restored classics, and more. In addition to film screenings, there are Q&As with cast and crew, receptions, and other fun. Now part of the Film Pittsburgh family, the Three Rivers Film Festival will continue its prominent role in bringing our region together to share the power of independent film.
The Three Rivers Film Festival typically includes well-attended screenings in beautiful theatrical venues, with film prizes including cash awards, and filmmaker networking events including a filmmakers’ lounge and after parties.
While it was our hope to present this year's Three Rivers Film Festival in theaters with in-person Q&As and networking opportunities, we are mindful that the Covid-19 pandemic makes that an unnecessarily risky option. Therefore, we are now planning to present this year's festival online as a virtual festival like so many others have done. The virtual version of 3RFF will include film screenings, guest filmmaker Q&A's as well as virtual networking opportunities. As we've always indicated, the show will go on!
Films will be awarded prizes in a competitive program to be announced soon.
