New Movie Organization In Pennsylvania - Pennsylvania Film Industry Association

There's a fairly new statewide organization, Pennsylvania Film Industry Association, that seems to serve two purposes - lobbying for the film industry and providing networking opportunities. They are planning an event for Pittsburgh in the not-too-distant future.

Movie-making is happening again in Western PA, after a few months of winter quiet. Could be another horror movie...

The early buzz on one of last year's local shoots, Love and Other Drugs, is very promising. I hope that turns out to be the case!
