ANNOUNCING THE NEW STEELTOWN INDIE PROGRAM
Over the past five years, Steeltown's Film Factory Competition has given over $150,000 to incubate 20 short films and to support Pittsburgh's independent film community.
This year, we are taking it to the next level, as our Film Factory evolves into our new Steeltown Indie Program. This program will allow a larger variety of projects to be considered, such as feature lengthfilms, television pilots, web-series, and short films.
Project submissions will be based on a formal request for proposals. Proposals will include materials such as a script, project treatment, budget, cast and crew list, letters of recommendation, and applicant's previous work.
We will continue to engage our network of advisors, and more actively mentor and nurture selectees as they develop their projects. It is our hope that this new direction will create a stronger impact on Pittsburgh's growing independent film community, and that it will be another step forward to making Pittsburgh one of the best places to make television and film projects.
