For adventuresome film-lovers, the third annual Pittsburgh Independent Film Festival is a bargain. For the cost of a fancy cocktail, a viewer can see dozens of new works.
The festival, which begins Friday night, June 20, and runs through the weekend, offers 63 independent films from around the world. Most are shorts, but there are seven feature length offerings. Material ranges from narrative to documentary, animated to music videos.
Beginning at noon on Sun., June 22, the festival offers a "Made in Pennsylvania" slate, 14 films produced in PA, including a feature-length documentary on Pittsburgh architect Henry Hornbostel.
Passes are $10 for one day; $15 for two days; and $20 for all three days. Films screen at the Father Ryan Arts Center, in McKees Rocks (420 Chartiers Ave., 412-771-3052 ).
