This year 3RFF offers five separate microcinema events around the city. The emergence of microcinemas in virtually every city across the country is a growing phenomena that fits squarely in the DIY movement. The screenings tend to take place in non-traditional spaces with limited seating. Many are run by non-profit groups, such as collectives or maybe just a passionate group of friends who enjoy offering a variety of alternate film and video programming to small audiences. In fact Pittsburgh has a rich history of microcinema exhibition, from the inception of Pittsburgh Filmmakers, to present-day gallery, pub, and house screenings. These uncensored programs offer an alternate way to view moving images. The five programs take place in five different locations. Presented in cooperation with Incite Journal for Experimental Media.
