PAFIA Supports Independent Film

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 2:22 PM | Jessica Sikes (Administrator)

On January 13th, PAFIA presented "Trailer Talk" hosted by Paula Gregg and Jeannee Josefczyk at the Quality Inn in New Kensington. 17 independent films were highlighted, with the producers, directors, actors, and crew members in attendance to directly represent their projects. The collaborative spirit and sense of accomplishment in creating a film was evident as the directors and producers took the stage to talk about their projects. Film in Pennsylvania can only continue to thrive under a healthy tax credit program. PAFIA supports independent and studio projects alike in Pennsylvania. Look for more events like this in the near future!

If you would like to check out the trailers, many of them are available on YouTube and have website or Facebook pages where you can learn more about the films listed below. Please take a moment to support our local filmmakers and crew. Some full length films are not available to watch at this time as they are currently being shown in festivals throughout the country. Congratulations to those films and best wishes for continued success to all!
