June 1 – June 10
With their future very much in question, this might be your final chance to take in Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Center for the Arts’ long-running Three Rivers Film Festival.
First held in 1982, this year’s fest celebrates women filmmakers and in particular the silent film era legend Lois Weber, a native of Allegheny City who directed more than 130 films in the early 20th century and appeared in another 100.
In addition to screenings of Weber’s films “Shoes” (June 5 at the Regent), “The Blot” and “The Dumb Girl of Portici,” there are showings of multiple SXSW, Sundance and Cannes award-winners from women around the globe, including explorations of Philippine maternity hospitals, sexual assault in the United States, the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and more.
There’s also a screening of Jovanka Vuckovic and Annie Clark’s horror anthology “XX” and even Sofia Coppola’s latest feature film, “The Beguiled.”
