Lights! Glamour! Action!
Instead of sitting at home on your couch in your PJs dishing on the best and worst dressed for the Oscars this year, you can put on your Sunday best and hit the red carpet yourself! Since its launch in 1990, the Pittsburgh Film Office (PFO) has hosted Lights! Glamour! Action! to celebrate and support all they do for the region throughout the year. The PFO are the folks helping to put Pittsburgh on the map as an affordable place to make movie, television and commercial productions. In fact, since their launch they’ve facilitated more than 124 feature films and television productions in Southwest PA, generating $762 million for the region. We certainly can’t complain when their efforts have given us the chance to brush elbows with the likes of Tom Cruise, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Chloe Sevigny. Especially if the stars go on to talk up Pittsburgh like Chloe!
What better way to celebrate all they’ve achieved than to strut your stuff on the red carpet while mingling with local celebs? Light! Glamour! Action! promises to be a night you won’t soon forget. This year they are taking over Heinz Field for the soiree, so get ready to watch the Oscars live on the big screen! In addition to your paparazzi moment on the carpet, you can enjoy gourmet food stations and fashion presentations while you bid in the silent auction. This year the auction will include autographed items from Pittsburgh-made films and many popular television shows, so bring your check book!
It all takes place Sunday March 2nd. A VIP champagne reception kicks off the evening at 6pm, followed by the Gala at 7:30pm. Tickets range from $500- $125, but if you have five fab friends, you can purchase 6 or more tickets together for only $75 each. Black tie is optional, but you’re encouraged to dress up as your favorite celebrity as well.
