The 33rd annual Three Rivers Film Festival is well underway, kicking off last Thursday, Nov. 7 with a premiere of Homemakers, a comedy set filmed in Pittsburgh. Acclaimed as the largest film festival in the region, Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Film Festival will showcase approximately 65 films at multiple locations throughout the city, including: sneak peeks, American and foreign dramas, documentaries, indies, restored classics, and a competitive shorts program. If you missed the first weekend of action, don’t fret. The festival runs until Nov. 22, giving attendees plenty of time to become immersed within a wide selection of cinematic bodies of work from around the globe.

Showcased along with established film works will be the microcinema movement, a blooming trend within the film industry. Microcinemas bring screenings to non-traditional spaces with limited seating outside of the typical movie theater atmosphere, such as bars, galleries or houses. Among the venues hosting these screenings, Brillobox will feature a microcinema of local music and video collaborations, titled Mind Cure Records Presents (after Mind Cure Records in Polish Hill).

The festival will also feature eight internationally acclaimed films, including Concrete Night, a highly stylized black and white film from Finland, and To Kill A Man, a true story about a man from Chile facing the moral and psychological consequences of committing murder. All eight international films have been submitted to the Academy Awards for consideration as Best Foreign Language Film.

As the festival progresses, there is still much to be seen and plenty of content which caters to multiple tastes and genre styles. Be sure to check out the full schedule below.
