Welcome to the Greetings from Pittsburgh: Neighborhood Narratives blog. Here is where we will post updates and information about our project as it progresses, as well as other related information. We hope you'll check back often between now and the fall of 2008 when we screen our project throughout the city of Pittsburgh.

Greetings from Pittsburgh: Neighborhood Narratives will celebrate Pittsburgh’s diverse neighborhoods through short films created by filmmakers with a special connection to these neighborhoods and city. These narratives will provide a unique portrait of the communities through fictional personal stories that reveal the experience and character of the neighborhoods in which they take place. This project will create a sense of community amongst some of Pittsburgh’s most talented filmmakers, give a voice to our individual neighborhoods, and foster feelings of connectedness between all members of all Pittsburgh communities.
