Three Rivers Film Festival

Posted By on Wed, Nov 14, 2012 at 3:40 PM

The Three Rivers Film Festival runs through Sat., Nov. 13. We haven’t seen these films but are some playing over the next couple of days that look like interesting picks. For the complete schedule and more info, see

Holy Motors. From Leo Carax comes this mind-bender about a man who lives parallel lives (beggar, assassin, family man, among others). 7:30 p.m. Wed., Nov. 14. Harris

Ginger & Rosa. A coming-of-age story from Sally Potter, set in the turbulent world of 1960s London. Starring Elle Fanning and newcomer Alice Englert, plus Annette Bening and Christina Hendricks. 9:15 p.m. Thu., Nov. 16, and 7 p.m. Fri., Nov. 16. Regent Square

Pittsburgh Dad and Mercury Men. Local filmmaker Chris Preksta and collaborator “Pittsburgh dad” (actor Curt Wooten) will screen clips from both web series, and discuss the pros and cons of online moviedom. 7:30 p.m. Thu., Nov. 16. Harris

Competitive Shorts Program. Always an intriguing program this year, 11 short films in assorted genres made the cut. 7 p.m. Fri., Nov. 16, and 2:30 p.m. Sat., Nov. 17. Melwood

Miami Connection. This 1987 “lost” film is back, and still crazy. It’s a tale of a band that goes on a crime-crushing spree in Florida, and it’s a hot ticket for fans of deliriously deliciously bad films. 11 p.m. Fri., Nov. 16. Melwood

El Cap Report. A doc about a Western PA native who attempts to become the oldest person to solo climb Yosemite’s 3000-foot-cliff, El Capitan. Noon, Sat., Nov. 17. Melwood

Two screenings accompanied by the Alloy Orchestra, who provide live musical scores for silent films:

Shorts from Buster Keaton and Fatty Arbuckle. Laughs for the whole family. 4 p.m. Sat., Nov. 17. Regent Square

The Overcoat. 1924 Russian film that adapts the parable by Gogol, about the unseen consequences of trading up one’s overcoat. 8 p.m. Sat., Nov. 17. Regent Square

Also screening, the following films which we reviewed:

Leviathan. 9:15 p.m. Wed., Nov. 14. Regent Square

Night Across the Street. 2 p.m. Sat., Nov. 17. Harris
