The first Steeltown Film Lab, a community-driven feature film and learning lab, will provide on-set learning opportunities for students and locals during production of the feature film The Rehabilitation of the Hill in Pittsburgh this spring. Learn more.


$15,000 GOAL

$15,150 of $25,000 raised

Hitting the $15,000 mark turns more industry professionals into on-set mentors.

Our students will shadow industry professionals as they complete the production this spring. Our students will experience first hand what it means to work in the film industry.


Everyone who helps us raise $15,000 will receive a commemorative Steeltown film lab pin.

What if the Film Lab doesn't hit its fundraising goal?

However, if the $15,000 goal is not met, donors will not recieve the commemorative pin. All donors will still receive the perks at their donation level.

What if the Film Lab exceeds its fundraising goal?

All funds raised that exceed the fundraising goal will be used in accordance with the Film Lab’s mission. More perks for donors may be available depending on the amount of excess funds raised.

Do you accept corporate matching gifts?
